Sky Sports reporter gives fresh update on Red Bull's Christian Horner investigation amid 'inappropriate behaviour' claim

A Sky Sports reporter has provided an update on Red Bull's hearing into allegations of 'inappropriate behaviour' against Christian Horner.

On Friday, Horner, who has led Red Bull Racing since 2005, was quizzed by an independent lawyer on the complaint.

Parent company Red Bull Gmbh, based near Salzburg, said on Monday that it is taking allegations against Horner "extremely seriously".

While the team is yet to confirm the nature of the complaint made against the 50-year-old, he has denied the allegations in a comment to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. According to the BBC Horner has also denied the claims to an F1 Commission meeting of team bosses, governing body the FIA and commercial rights holders F1.

With his hearing continuing to take place, Sky Sports reporter Craig Slater gave an update on the situation, claiming it is not expected to be resolved anytime soon.

He said on Sky Sports News: "Its not finished for day. Christian Horner is still in with that investigator in a secret London venue. They moved it - they were initially intending to meet at Red Bull headquarters in Milton Keynes, but because of the media interest it took place elsewhere.

"Christian Horner has been in this meeting and interview situation since about 10 o'clock this morning.

"I expect it to come to an end at around 6pm. This is the first interview he's had since we learnt about this case. A female employee and colleague at Red Bull Racing has accused Christian Horner of 'controlling and coercive' behaviour, so Horner is today, learning some of the details of the accusation against him.

"I don't expect an outcome or resolution to this by the end of the day. I've been led to understand this could be a long process. Red Bull are being very thorough and because it's going to be thorough it will not be going to an F1 time-table.

"Red Bull have the launch of their car next Thursday, for example. It could well be that this continues past that date, perhaps even towards the start of pre-season testing on the 20th of this month.

"The first Grand Prix of the season is on March 2. They want to do this correctly. They want to do it thoroughly and fairly for both parties in this case."
