Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has been cleared of misconduct following an investigation into a team employee’s accusations of inappropriate behavior.

The team’s parent company, Red Bull GmbH, initiated the independent probe in early February after Horner was accused of controlling and inappropriate behavior by a member of Red Bull’s F1 team.

In a statement issued Wednesday, Red Bull said: “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.

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

Horner, 50, strongly denied the allegations when news of the investigation broke on Feb. 5. He has continued in his role throughout the process, and will remain as Red Bull team principal.

Pressure was mounting on Red Bull to resolve the situation before the opening round of the 2024 Formula One season in Bahrain this weekend, with F1 itself calling for a resolution at the “earliest opportunity.”
