Horner Initiates Legal Action Against Dutch Newspaper

Christian Horner, the team boss of Red Bull Racing, is taking legal action against De Telegraaf for reporting allegations of him sending sexual messages to a female colleague and attempting to cover up the investigation with a settlement offer, while he denies all allegations and continues his role within the team.


‣ De Telegraaf revealed details of an investigation into Red Bull Racing team boss Christian Horner, alleging he sent sexual messages to a female colleague.

‣ The Dutch newspaper claims to have seen WhatsApp messages between Horner and the female co-worker, reporting that Horner attempted to cover up the investigation with a £650,000 settlement offer.

‣ Horner denies all allegations and has taken legal action against De Telegraaf, continuing his work with the race team and planning to appear at upcoming test days in Bahrain.

Oh boy, did you hear about the drama unfolding on Friday? De Telegraaf, that Dutch newspaper, spilled the beans on Christian Horner, the big boss at Red Bull Racing. They claim to have dug deep into some investigation. And guess what? Horner’s not having any of it. He’s lawyering up against them.

So, here’s the juicy bit. De Telegraaf alleges that Horner’s been a bit too friendly, sending, uh, “personal” messages to a female colleague. For quite a while, too. They’re talking about seeing WhatsApp chats between Horner and the lady in question. Imagine that!

And it gets thicker. The paper suggests Horner tried to sweep the whole mess under the rug. How, you ask? By allegedly throwing a whopping £650,000 at it to make it go away. Yep, you heard that right.

### Horner continues to deny

But Horner? He’s standing his ground, denying everything. Motorsport-Total says he’s fighting back, taking legal swings at De Telegraaf. Despite the storm, he’s sticking to his guns, keeping his head in the game. He’s even showing up for the upcoming test days in Bahrain, business as usual.

Crazy times, huh? Let’s see how this all pans out.
