While the investigation into recent allegations against Christian Horner raised eye brows across the world. The worries from Red Bull can now be put to bed. Horner has been cleared of any wrong doing and will continue his role as Team Principal with Red Bull. The team’s parent company, Red Bull GmbH initiated an external investigation into rumored allegations of inappropriate behaviors, aggressive leadership style and rumored sexual misconduct. However, these accusations have been deemed baseless and Horner can put all of his focus into the season opener.

Red Bull released the following, “The independent investigation into the allegations made against Mr. Horner is complete, and Red Bull can confirm that the grievance has been dismissed. The complainant has a right of appeal.

Red Bull is confident that the investigation has been fair, rigorous and impartial. 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. Red Bull will continue striving to meet the highest workplace standards.”

The decision comes after Red Bull has received continued pressure from their partner auto manufacturer Ford. Whether the relationship has been strained is yet to be determined. Horner has traveled to Bahrain for the season opened set for this weekend. For now its business as usual at the Red Bull camp as they put this problem behind them.
