Horner breaks silence on Red Bull investigation verdict

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has spoken publicly for the first time since being cleared of allegations of inappropriate behaviour be a team investigation.

The investigation was launched by Red Bull Racing's parent company, and was prompted by accusations made against Horner by a female colleague.

The probe, which eventually found no wrongdoing on Horner's part, granted the accuser the right to appeal the verdict.

Throughout the investigative process, Horner has vehemently denied the allegations and continued to stress his commitment to the team.

"Again, I'm not going to be able to give you I'm afraid any further comments on it, but I'm pleased to be here in Bahrain and then with the team focused on the season ahead.
