    Red Bull team boss has to justify himself on Friday

    Accusations are being made against Red Bull's Formula 1 team boss Christian Horner. Apparently there will be an interview this week. Time is running out. The world champion team's new car is due to be presented next week.

    Following allegations against Red Bull team boss Christian Horner of inappropriate behavior, a hearing is to be held this Friday. As the “Times” in England reported, the hearing is to take place at the headquarters of the Formula 1 racing team in Milton Keynes. No further details were initially given. The Formula 1 team Red Bull did not initially comment.

    Red Bull announced on Monday that it had launched “an independent investigation” into “certain allegations” against its Formula 1 team boss Horner. “This investigation, which is already underway, is being conducted by external specialist counsel. The company takes these matters very seriously and the investigation will be concluded as soon as possible.”

    According to information from “”, rumors have emerged about the 50-year-old's misconduct on the sidelines of the Ski World Cup in Kitzbühel. According to the report, a member of staff made the serious allegations against the Briton. What exactly the team boss was accused of has not yet been made public.

    As the “Times” reported, the woman had contacted the parent company in Austria directly and not the Formula 1 team. The company then went public immediately without informing the racing team in advance. This step, it continues, not only illustrates the seriousness of the situation, “but also Horner's potential vulnerability.”

    Horner denies allegations

    Horner completely denied the allegations, according to the Dutch newspaper “De Telegraaf”. The paper was the first to report on the case and, according to its own account, relied on several sources. A Red Bull spokesman further explained that it would not be appropriate “to make any further comments at this time”. The company did not comment specifically on the allegations against Horner.

    Three-time Formula 1 world champion Max Verstappen drives for Red Bull. Horner has been team boss since 2005 and is by far the longest-serving boss in the premier class of motorsport. He has been married to Geri Halliwell, formerly a member of the girl group Spice Girls, since 2015.

    Under Horner, Sebastian Vettel was world champion from 2010 to 2013. Verstappen won the drivers' title in the last three years. Red Bull will present its new Formula 1 car on February 15, and the first Grand Prix of the year will take place on March 2 in Bahrain.
