Red Bull faces distraction as Christian Horner undergoes investigation amid launch of RB20 car

Posted : 16 February 2024

Red Bull Team Principal, Christian Horner, faces an ongoing investigation into alleged inappropriate behavior, leading to an eight-hour internal hearing. Despite the distraction, Horner assures that it's "business as usual" at Red Bull as the team gears up for the 2024 Formula One season.


The successful 2023 campaign, winning 21 out of 22 Grands Prix with Max Verstappen securing the Drivers' Championship, has the team focused on the upcoming challenges. Horner, denying the accusations, appreciates the team's support during this period.


As Red Bull unveiled their RB20 car for the new season, Horner emphasized the unity and focus within the team. The distraction is acknowledged, but the principal looks ahead to testing in Bahrain, dismissing rumors of a split within the Red Bull camp.


Max Verstappen, the reigning champion, also rebuffed suggestions of strain in his relationship with Horner, emphasizing their longstanding collaboration and commitment to on-track success. Verstappen, while enjoying victory, acknowledges the need for increased competitiveness across teams in Formula One.


Looking ahead, Verstappen anticipates challenges in the 2025 season with regulatory changes. The departure of seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton to Ferrari adds excitement to the sport. Horner sees Hamilton's move as brave and exciting for Formula One, reminiscent of the driver's earlier bold decision to switch from McLaren to Mercedes in 2013. Despite ongoing distractions, Red Bull remains focused on the season ahead, aiming for continued success on the track.
