Oracle Red Bull Racing Team Principal and CEO Christian Horner says that it is business as usual for him and the Milton Keynes-based outfit as they prepare for the 2024 Formula One season despite the ongoing investigation into him for alleged coercive behavior against a female employee of the Formula One team.

Speaking to Sky Sports News on Thursday at the launch of the RB20, Horner said that the team is working hard to prepare for the defense of their championship.

When asked if he had considered stepping down temporarily while the investigation is ongoing, Horner said no and confirmed that he has been at the factory since returning from Christmas break on January 8 and also confirmed that he will be at the opening race of the season in Bahrain at the end of the month.

Formula One issued the following statement on Sunday:

“We hope that the matter will be clarified at the earliest opportunity after a fair and thorough process.

“We have noted Red Bull has instigated an independent investigation into internal allegations at Red Bull Racing.

“We will not comment further at this time.

The 2024 Formula One season gets underway in just under two weeks with the Bahrain Grand Prix, which takes place on Saturday, March 2.
