Red Bull employee files complaint against team boss Horner

Red Bull employee files complaint against team boss Horner

According to information from the BBC, the woman is said to have contacted the FIA ​​Ethics Committee.

In the case surrounding team boss Christian Horner, the employee in question from the Formula 1 racing team Red Bull Racing allegedly lodged a complaint with the FIA ​​about his behaviour. According to information from the BBC, the woman is said to have contacted the FIA ​​Ethics Committee. According to the BBC, a Red Bull spokesman said he had no knowledge of the complaint and did not wish to comment further.

After the BBC report became known on Saturday, the FIA ​​announced that the FIA ​​“receives and processes inquiries and complaints from the Compliance Officer and, if necessary, from the Ethics Committee.”

“Both committees operate independently and ensure strict confidentiality throughout the entire process. As a result, in general, we cannot confirm the receipt of any particular complaint.” It is also unlikely that we will be able to provide additional comment on the complaints we receive from any party.

Horner denies these accusations

At the beginning of February, it became known that Red Bull was investigating allegations against team boss Horner (50) for inappropriate behaviour. After investigation by the lawyer, the complaint was rejected. “Red Bull is confident that the investigation was fair, comprehensive and impartial,” she said at the time. Horner has always denied the allegations. However, according to the BBC, the employee allegedly wants to appeal the decision.

After the complaint was dismissed, anonymous emails containing files were sent to other team bosses and Formula 1 journalists ahead of the first Grand Prix of the year in Bahrain, putting Horner under pressure again. “It's time to focus on what we're here for, namely Formula 1,” Horner said ahead of the second race of the year a week ago in Saudi Arabia.
