“This process, which is already under way, is being carried out by an external specialist barrister. The company takes these matters extremely seriously and the investigation will be completed as soon as practically possible. It would not be appropriate to comment further at this time.”

It appears as though the complaint was made to parent company Red Bull - headquartered in Austria - and not Red Bull Racing, which operates from its base in Milton Keynes in the UK.

It’s not yet clear what nature of allegation Horner is facing. According to Dutch publication De Telegraaf, Horner has denied the claims.
