However, the controversy lingered as alleged flirtatious messages between him and the employee surfaced on social media.

These messages, initially shared with members of the F1 community, sparked further discussion.

Amid these developments, Geri demonstrated her support by joining Horner in Bahrain for the opening Grand Prix, just as the allegations gained traction online.

Bernie Ecclestone, former Formula One chief and a mentor who introduced Horner to Red Bull in 2005, commented on the situation.

He expressed optimism about the couple’s future, quoting Horner: “It’s peace in our time. And Christian informs me everything’s fantastic with Geri.”

The drama took another turn as the woman who accused Horner filed an appeal against the decision to dismiss her complaint.

Reports indicate she has engaged an American legal firm to represent her.

Red Bull maintains that their investigation was thorough and unbiased, leading to Horner’s exoneration.

They affirmed the dismissal of the grievance but acknowledged the complainant’s right to appeal.

Red Bull Austria, the team’s parent company, has stated their commitment to maintaining high standards in the workplace.
