Christian Horner Open to Max Verstappen Leaving Red Bull

Christian Horner, team principal of Red Bull Racing, recently made a statement indicating that he would not object to Max Verstappen leaving the team if the reigning F1 champion chooses to do so. Despite speculation surrounding Verstappen’s future, Horner remains confident that the Dutch driver will stay with Red Bull beyond the current season.

Internal Strife at Red Bull

The team faced internal turmoil following allegations of inappropriate behavior against Horner by a female colleague. Despite calls for his resignation, Horner reassured the public that his relationship with Verstappen remains strong. He emphasized that there is no tension or stress between them, highlighting Verstappen’s positive demeanor within the team.

Respecting Verstappen’s Decision

In a hypothetical scenario, Horner stated that he would respect Verstappen’s choice to depart before his contract expires in 2028. He emphasized that no individual is bigger than the team and that commitment and passion are crucial aspects of being part of the Red Bull Racing team.

While addressing rumors surrounding the team’s motorsport adviser, Helmut Marko, Horner expressed his surprise at the news and downplayed the notion of Marko being suspended or forced out of his role. He highlighted Marko’s integral role within the organization and his enduring passion for Formula One, despite his advanced age.

As the team prepares for the upcoming Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, Horner’s comments reflect a harmonious yet determined approach to handling potential departures and managing internal challenges within Red Bull Racing.
