Alleged Christian Horner messages and photos leaked after Red Bull cleared F1 boss of ‘inappropriate behaviour’

A string of texts allegedly sent by Christian Horner have been leaked after he was cleared by Formula 1 team Red Bull of sexually inappropriate behaviour.

The tranche of messages and photos are alleged to show details of private conversations between the F1 boss and an unknown person, reported The Sun.

They were revealed just 24 hours after the three-week long internal investigation by Red Bull into alleged inappropriate behaviour was concluded.

It’s not known what the content of the messages is. Mr Horner has not commented on the alleged texts.

The Red Bull Racing boss, 50, arrived smiling in Bahrain on Thursday morning for the F1 season opener.

Mr Horner, married to Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, was told he could keep his post at Max Verstappen’s all-conquering Red Bull team on Wednesday.

Halliwell joined her husband in the middle east nation.

He told press in Bahrain he was “pleased” that the investigation had come to an end.

The racing boss has always vehemently denied allegations that he sent inappropriate messages to a woman at work.

Halliwell, who he married in 2015, was reportedly “relieved and elated” as her husband was cleared of any wrongdoing.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Mr Horner said: “I’m just pleased that the process is over, I can’t comment about it”.

“The focus is very much now on the Grand Prix and the season ahead and trying to defend both of our titles.

“I’m pleased to be here in Bahrain and with the team, focused on the season ahead.

A source told The Sun that been “weeks of hell for Christian and his family”.

“As he has said all along, these claims are ‘nuts’.

“An exhaustive investigation has been carried out and the allegations have proven to be nonsense.

“Geri has been rock solid behind Christian — and his whole family is relieved and elated that it’s over. Those feelings are there but no one close to Christian feels like celebrating much after what he’s been through.

“For the time being his focus is back fully on winning races.”
