Wolff Urges F1 Learning from Horner Probe

21/02/2024

Toto Wolff calls for F1 to draw lessons from Red Bull’s investigation into Christian Horner’s alleged misconduct.

Toto Wolff, Mercedes F1 team principal, has called on Formula 1 to learn from the ongoing internal investigation into Red Bull team boss Christian Horner.

Horner is currently under investigation by parent company Red Bull GmbH following a complaint from a group employee alleging inappropriate behavior by the Brit.

He has not been suspended from his duties and oversaw the launch of the RB20. He is also present in Bahrain for the start of pre-season testing. Horner continues to deny all allegations against him.

Red Bull GmbH has appointed an external specialist lawyer to question Horner regarding the claims, with a report to be submitted before a final decision on Horner’s future is made.

There is no timeline for the investigation’s conclusion, but Wolff was the sole team principal to comment on the matter when prompted to do so in Bahrain.

“I believe Formula 1 and the teams stand for inclusion, equality, fairness, and diversity.”

“It’s not just about talking the talk, but walking the walk every day, and these are the standards we set for living.”

“We are a global sport and one of the world’s most significant sporting platforms and are role models, but that said, there has been a lot of speculation in recent weeks.”

“What is most important at this stage of the process in which Red Bull has initiated an internal investigation is that it is completed correctly and transparently.”

“This is something we need to work on, what the outcomes are, what it means for Formula 1, and how we can learn from it.”

“We want to talk about racing cars and the sport rather than these very critical issues that are more than just a team problem.”

“It’s an issue for the whole of Formula 1 and for every individual working within it.”
