Christian Horner has released a statement after an anonymous account leaked alleged photos and texts from the Red Bull boss.

The 50-year-old was cleared of any wrongdoing this week after the investigation into allegations of inappropriate behaviour was brought to a close.

Red Bull’s parent company said they were “confident that the investigation has been fair, rigorous and impartial”.

But just 24 hours after Horner was cleared, new information allegedly containing texts and photos from the Red Bull boss was leaked.

The leaked conversations were reportedly sent to hundreds of journalists, the team principals in F1, and the sport’s bosses.

Horner has now issued a statement following the leak, again denying the allegations against him.

“I won’t comment on anonymous speculation, but to reiterate, I have always denied the allegations,” he said.

“I respected the integrity of the independent investigation and fully cooperated with it every step of the way.

“It was a thorough and fair investigation conducted by an independent specialist barrister, and it has concluded, dismissing the complaint made.

“I remain fully focused on the start of the season.”

Horner was at the Bahrain International Circuit on Thursday for the season’s first free practice session.

For the first time since he was cleared, Horner admitted he was looking forward to focusing on the season ahead.

“I’m just pleased that the process is over,” Horner told Sky Sports News.

“I can’t comment about it, but we are here very much to focus now on the Grand Prix and the season ahead and trying to defend both of our titles.”

But Red Bull’s statement dismissing the allegations against Horner hasn’t satisfied Mercedes boss Toto Wolff.

The 52-year-old wanted more “transparency” from Red Bull about the investigation.

“Well, I just read the statement, which was pretty basic, I would say.

“My personal opinion is we can’t look behind the curtain. A lady in an organisation has spoken to HR and said there is an issue. It was investigated, and yesterday, the sport received a message, ‘It’s all fine. We’ve looked at it.’

“And I believe that with the aspirations as a global sport on such critical topics, it needs more transparency, and I wonder what the sport’s position is.

“We are competitors, we are a team, and we can have our own opinions, but it’s more like a general reaction or action that we as a sport need to assess what is right and wrong in that situation.”
