Jos Verstappen Refutes Leaking Alleged WhatsApp Messages

Christian Horner was cleared by Red Bull of any misconduct, but the case took a new turn with the leak of alleged conversation screenshots to the media and paddock members, amidst speculation that Jos Verstappen might be the source, a claim he firmly denies.


‣ Christian Horner, the Red Bull Racing team boss, was cleared of any misconduct by Red Bull GmbH, but the case took a new turn when screenshots of alleged conversations were leaked to the media and key F1 figures from an anonymous email address.

‣ The authenticity of the screenshots, which are said to depict conversations between Horner and a colleague, has not been confirmed, adding a layer of uncertainty and speculation to the situation.

‣ Jos Verstappen, father of Max Verstappen, has been speculated on social media to be the source of the leaked WhatsApp conversations, a claim he strongly denies, emphasizing his desire for a stable and calm environment for his son.

Just when we thought the drama around Christian Horner was wrapping up, boom! A curveball. Red Bull had just cleared him of any wrongdoing. But then, out of the blue, some sneaky screenshots started making rounds. They were allegedly between Horner and a colleague. And guess what? They were sent from a no-name email to the who’s who of the racing world.

For what felt like ages, everyone was just guessing. Rumors were flying left and right about Horner. Finally, Red Bull GmbH broke the silence. They said, loud and clear, “Our guy, Christian? He’s innocent.” But hold on, the plot thickens. The very next day, an email blast goes out. This one’s packed with screenshots of supposed chats. Real or not? Jury’s still out on that.

Now, here’s where it gets juicy. The rumor mill’s churning out a wild theory. They’re saying Jos Verstappen, yep, Max’s dad, might be the one spilling the beans. But Jos? He’s having none of it. Talking to De Limburger, he’s like, “Total rubbish! Why would I even?” He’s all about keeping things chill for Max. “This mess? It’s helping no one. Least of all, Max,” he says, clearly frustrated.

So, there you have it. A saga that’s got more twists than a pretzel. And just when you think it’s over, it ain’t. Stay tuned, folks.
