Christian Horner Investigation: F1 and FIA bosses meet to discuss Red Bull team principal’s case amid evidence leak

Christian Horner finds himself entangled in an ongoing dilemma, having become the focus of an internal inquiry conducted by Red Bull’s parent company. However, just as the truth was about to be revealed, the situation took an unexpected twist.

As a result, F1 and FIA bosses are arranging a meeting to discuss the outcome of Horner’s case as well as address the leaked information that occurred on Thursday, the culprit of which is yet to be found.

F1 and FIA bosses talks on Christian Horner’s investigation

Christian Horner’s case has taken an unfortunate turn, as personal information related to the case has been leaked. Although the criminal responsible for the violation of the F1 team’s rules remains unidentified, both FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem and F1’s Stefano Domenicali have scheduled a meeting to discuss this matter during their usual weekend meetings.

Earlier this month, when the news was initially revealed to the public, F1 and the FIA had both been observing the case closely and predicting the next move of the internal investigation, which mainly occurred as both sides of the case did not want to be directly involved.

However, that attempt failed, as the news has been circulating and has been the main focal point throughout social media for the past few weeks, with different fluctuating opinions revolving around it. Currently, several Formula One team principals are growing impatient, urging officials for a clearer verdict or an explanation regarding Red Bull’s dismissal of the internal investigation.

Zak Brown stated, “The sanctioning body [the FIA] has a responsibility and authority over our sport and our fans. I think all of us in Formula 1 are ambassadors for the sport, on and off the track, like you see in other sports, and so I think they need to make sure that things have been fully transparent with them.”

Christian Horner’s investigation information leaked?

Christian Horner was officially proven guilty of the allegations made by his female colleague, news that brought great joy to the Red Bull F1 team. However, their happiness did not last long with official documents regarding the case being leaked by anonymous email addresses.

The email was then sent to more than 100 people who were crucial past or present figures in the Formula One industry, including Max Verstappen’s father, Jos Verstappen. Red Bull has still not commented on anything regarding the leaked information in the news.

However, the team has printed a statement in the Bahrain paddock from Horner that stated, “I won’t comment on anonymous speculation, but to reiterate, I have always denied the allegations.”

“I respected the integrity of the independent investigation and fully cooperated with it every step of the way. It was a thorough and fair investigation conducted by an independent specialist barrister,, and it has concluded, dismissing the complaint made. I remain fully focused on the start of the season.”
