F1 LIVE: Christian Horner ‘will leave Red Bull’ as Lewis Hamilton issued ban at Mercedes

Christian Horner, the team principal for Red Bull, will be interrogated on Friday as part of an independent probe into claims the British athlete acted in an inappropriate and domineering manner. An employee of Red Bull has made accusations against Horner, which he has refuted.

The investigation’s conclusion date has not been set, but we will keep you informed as this story progresses.

Mercedes is still looking for someone to replace Lewis Hamilton. Although Lando Norris, Carlos Sainz Jr., Alex Albon, Esteban Ocon, and Frederik Vesti have all been mentioned as possible 2025 successors, there isn’t yet a front-runner.

Coulthard issues call for calm

David Coulthard believes that some observers have overreacted to the news of Christian Horner facing a Red Bull investigation over allegations of ‘inappropriate behaviour’.

Coulthard stated on the Formula for Success podcast: “I’ve observed a lot of overreaction on social media.

“You know, there are people who are demanding things like for Christian to step down and to be suspended.

“Nevertheless, everyone should always have a chance to state their case. It seems like that will occur on Friday for Christian.

“I’m not aware of the other person involved. Thus, perhaps by next week, we’ll know more about that specific circumstance.”

Hamilton ‘issued with Mercedes ban’

According to reports, Lewis Hamilton has been banned from directly luring Mercedes employees to join him at Ferrari. The Brit has been dealt a serious blow to any hopes of getting back together with some of his important team members as he prepares to leave the Silver Arrows at the end of the season to take up a new seat alongside Charles Leclerc.

According to Planet F1, Hamilton’s contract at Mercedes contains a “no-poaching” clause that forbids him from taking any employees with him following his dramatic departure to Ferrari.
