A decision on Christian Horner's future is expected on Wednesday

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner's future could be decided before this weekend's Formula 1 World Championship season opener in Bahrain. According to sources from Reuters news agency, Red Bull will make an announcement in this regard before the first race, perhaps within the next 48 hours. Other media outlets, such as the English newspaper The Guardian, reported that it would become clear on Wednesday what would happen to Horner in the future. He is at the center of an internal investigation. It must be clarified whether he or she has behaved inappropriately towards the employee.

The Spice Girl singer's ex-husband Geri Halliwell, 50, has been the focus of investigations since January. The exact allegations have not been officially reported. Formula 1's parent company Liberty Media as well as the entire scene want to resolve the issue as quickly as possible so that the focus can be on the sport from Bahrain onwards.

Horner was interviewed by an independent lawyer on February 9, and the final report submitted to Red Bull GmbH in Austria is believed to be based on around 60 hours of interviews with all parties. Sky Sports reported that the document is more than 100 pages long, but the details are expected to remain confidential.

Horner was on test drives in Bahrain last week and then returned to the factory in Milton Keynes. Under normal circumstances, he would return to Bahrain on Wednesday when the first training sessions begin the next day. The race will be held on Saturday, marking the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan.

Horner made cautious comments last Thursday. “There is a process I am part of,” he said in Sakhir. “I can't really comment on the process or time frame. Of course everyone wants to achieve a result as quickly as possible,” Horner continued.
