A verdict isn’t expected today on Christian Horner’s internal investigation. The Brit left his London home this morning for his hearing into a complaint of inappropriate behaviour According to Sky Sports’ Craig Slater, the meeting will commence mid-morning on Friday.
“I have been guided away from expecting an outcome to this investigation today,” he said on Sky Sports News.
“I think you’re right not to call it a hearing which is what it’s been mostly described as. I think this is more of a meeting and an interview by the investigators with Christian Horner which will be, as I understand it, in a central London location today rather than at the team’s headquarters in Milton Keynes. So I’m not expecting an outcome today.
“Clearly [it is] a very significant day. We know that Red Bull are taking this investigation very seriously. There’s an allegation of inappropriate behaviour by Christian Horner by a female member of staff and I understand that relates to controlling and potentially coercive behaviour.
“That’s what we’re looking at here in terms of what Christian Horner is being accused of. He has emphatically denied the allegations and is going to work to clear his name but this could be the first step, I’ve been led to understand, in a process which could go on for a while.”
