Horner was then questioned on whether there are any regrets that the matter became public, he replied: “Look, again, I’m not going to be able to give you Im afraid any further comment on it but I’m pleased to be here in Bahrain and with the team focussed on the season ahead.”

“The investigation report is confidential and contains the private information of the parties and third parties who assisted in the investigation, and therefore we will not be commenting further out of respect for all concerned.”

It added: “Red Bull will continue striving to meet the highest workplace standards.”
