A new twist in the Christian Horner case is causing unprecedented chaos at Red Bull: an anonymous source leaked a whole bunch of WhatsApp messages that the Red Bull team boss allegedly sent to the young lady who accused him of inappropriate behavior. And those messages, which we were able to view, confirm that there was indeed something going on between the two.

LOOK. Quickly explained: who is Red Bull Racing boss Horner?

On Wednesday evening, Red Bull team boss Christian Horner was cleared of all blame. An independent lawyer’s investigation concluded that he had not engaged in inappropriate behavior after all, after a complaint from an employee of the team. Apparently that was not to the liking of anyone who may or may not be an involved party: today, within the space of half an hour, the entire F1 family received two anonymous emails with a link to screenshots of an alleged WhatsApp conversation between Horner and the young lady in question. The conversations, which we also have in our hands, at least confirm that there was indeed something going on between the two.

Rarely seen action

But the anonymous emails mainly suggest that someone is targeting Christian Horner and wants to see his head roll. With a rarely seen action: in Formula 1 a lot happens behind the scenes of the paddock, but it has not been since the ‘Max Mosley’ case in 2008 that someone has been attacked so frontally in a way that also seriously affects the private life of the person involved. impacts. In April 2008, then FIA CEO Mosley came under fire when the Daily Mail published a video in which he was seen in compromising ladies’ company.

This new twist in the Horner case creates unprecedented chaos at Red Bull, and especially in the company. As we wrote before, the issue caused division at the top of the energy drink manufacturer. The question now is whether the main shareholder can continue to keep his hand over Horner’s head. In addition, from a sporting point of view, this is not an ideal start to the season for Max Verstappen, to say the least. Today, no one in the team knows what wood arrows are made from, we noticed when we searched for responses.
