Ecclestone provides insight into Horner marriage

Despite the allegations, Geri Horner has remained by Horner's side at the height of media scrutiny.

She was seen in the F1 paddock at the Bahrain and Saudi Arabia Grands Prix, where Red Bull achieved a 1-2 in both races.

Recently, an unlikely source has provided an update on the state of Horner’s marriage to the former Spice Girl.

Former F1 boss, Bernie Ecclestone claims everything is ‘fantastic’ between the couple, whilst making a borderline offensive comparison to the Second World War.

“It’s peace in our time. And Christian informs me everything’s fantastic with Geri,” he said according to the Daily Mail.

“Max [Verstappen] seems likely to stay, and it’s like all wars in so much as people get over things and move on.

“After the Second World War you weren’t allowed to mention Germany, and the Jews wouldn’t buy anything from there. It was understandable.

“But after not too long everyone forgets that and they are buying Mercedes. So I don’t see why anyone would want to push Christian out, certainly not as time acts as a great healer. He is doing a super job, and a few weeks can make a big difference.

“He has Geri’s support, and the whole team is doing well. There is no logical reason to upset that balance.”
