Christian Horner releases statement after texts and photos ‘from Red Bull boss’ leaked


This week, Christian Horner, the team principal of Red Bull, the reigning Formula 1 champions, was declared free of any wrongdoing following an inquiry into accusations of “inappropriate behavior.” Horner, who is married to Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, vehemently asserted his innocence in a strongly worded statement after leaked messages allegedly exchanged between him and a Formula One team staff member. The investigation was initiated on February 5 by Red Bull GmbH, the parent company of Red Bull Racing, but three weeks later, an independent barrister, enlisted to review the evidence, exonerated Horner.

He expressed respect for the integrity of the independent investigation, emphasizing full cooperation and focus on the upcoming season.
