Jos Verstappen, it seems, hasn’t quite buried the hatchet with Christian Horner. Despite a chat in Bahrain, things are still a bit frosty. Jos spilled the beans on their conversation.

Red Bull Racing’s got a storm brewing. At a presser in Saudi Arabia, Horner was all hopeful, talking about moving past issues. But, uh, doesn’t look like we’re there yet. Before this, there was buzz about a lady being put on pause by the team. And then, Helmut Marko hinted he might be hitting the pause button too.

### What Verstappen and Horner Chewed Over

So, Jos Verstappen’s off racing in Belgium, missing the drama in Jeddah. Post-Bahrain Grand Prix, he and Horner had a heart-to-heart. Jos was fuming post-qualifying and ditched a meeting with Christian. They caught up again on Saturday, post-race. Red Bull’s stance? All’s well that ends well.

“He’s like, ‘You trust me? I’m all in for your son.’ And we’re there, gesturing, no actual fight. But yeah, Friday was a different story. Had a bit of a clash in the office, and I stormed out. Later, in the trailer, he’s all ‘Congrats, good race,'” Jos shared with the Daily Mail.

Yet, Jos’s words hint at unresolved tensions. He’s still on the ‘Horner should step down’ train. Plus, he’s backing the woman who raised a complaint against Horner, the same one now sidelined by the team.

Talk about a plot twist, huh?
