Red Bull Suspends Employee Over Allegations Against Christian Horner

Red Bull, the Formula One champions, have put on suspension a female staff member who levied accusations of inappropriate conduct against team principal Christian Horner, as reported by the BBC and Sky Sports television on Thursday. The team’s spokesperson stated that they could not discuss matters related to internal employment.

Horner, who has refuted all claims directed at him, was scheduled to participate in a routine FIA press briefing at the Saudi Grand Prix later. This decision follows the conclusion of an independent inquiry last week, which found no grounds to the allegations against Horner. The identity of the employee and the specifics of the accusations have been kept confidential by the team, although supposed evidence was anonymously sent to F1 journalists and prominent individuals within the racing community last week.
