Red Bull Formula 1 team principal Christian Horner has been cleared of any wrongdoing following a lengthy investigation into allegations of inappropriate behaviour made against him.

The investigation, initiated by parent company Red Bull GmbH after a female employee filed a complaint, aimed to determine the validity of the claims.

Horner, while maintaining his innocence, cooperated fully throughout the process which was overseen by an independent lawyer appointed by Red Bull to ensure impartiality and fairness.

The process involved extensive interviews with the individuals involved in the case and took several weeks to complete. It concluded with no evidence to substantiate the claims made against Horner.

Red Bull GmbH released an official statement confirming the investigation's outcome:

“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.”

While the statement acknowledged the complainant's right to appeal, Red Bull remained steadfast in their confidence in the investigation's integrity.

“Red Bull is confident that the investigation has been fair, rigorous and impartial,” the company added.

“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 satisfactory conclusion of the investigation is a heavy burden off Horner and the entire Red Bull outfit.

Currently traveling to Bahrain, the Briton - as the longest-standing team principal in the sport - will embark on his 20th season at the helm of Red Bull Racing this weekend.
