Red Bull complete investigation into team principal Christian Horner

Red Bull have completed their investigation.

Red Bull have completed their investigation into team principal Christian Horner.

Horner was placed under investigation by the Austrian parent company of the F1 team - Red Bull GmbH - earlier this month, following allegations of inappropriate behaviour towards a female colleague.

Horner has vehemently denied the allegations throughout the process.

Sky Sports have reported that the investigation has now been completed, and that the outcome could be communicated on either Tuesday or Wednesday ahead of Saturday's season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix.

The investigation was carried out by a specialist barrister, and included an interview with Horner on February 9.

The board of Red Bull GmbH will now decide what action to take next, if any, and whether Horner can continue in his position of team principal and chief executive.

Sky Sports F1 reporter Craig Slater said: "Wednesday is the most likely day we could get some kind of news release from the Red Bull headquarters in Salzburg.

Slater revealed that Red Bull's investigation into Horner "has been completed now, it's a very long document, approaching 150 pages, 50 or 60 hours of interviews have been undertaken."

Horner was present at the reigning constructors' champions 2024 car launch and pre-season testing in Bahrain last week.

When asked about the investigation during a press conference on February 15, Horner said that it is "business as usual" at Red Bull.

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff said that the Horner situation is "an issue for all of Formula 1", while McLaren chief executive Zak Brown called for a "swift " and "transparent" conclusion to the investigation.
