Horner missing from key F1 feature amid Red Bull investigation

It has been revealed that Red Bull boss Christian Horner will not be at the team principal press conference ahead of the Bahrain Grand Prix.

The 50-year-old has continued in his role during the investigation and has 'completely' denied the allegations against him.

Mekies will be joined by Fred Vasseur of Ferrari, Zak Brown of McLaren and Toto Wolff of Mercedes.

While the outcome of Red Bull’s investigation has loomed over the F1 world throughout the off-season, it has been reported that Red Bull GmbH have reached their verdict on the matter, and an announcement is expected before the start of the opening race of the season.

It means that it will not interfere with the team’s world championship defence, but it is certainly expected that the media will be following Red Bull closely in Bahrain.
