The future of the Red Bull Formula 1 team is in the spotlight as their boss Christian Horner faces an internal hearing on Friday into a complaint of inappropriate behaviour.

Horner has denied the allegations in a comment to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, external as well as inside an F1 Commission meeting of team bosses, governing body the FIA and commercial rights holders F1 earlier this week.

Many insiders who have discussed the situation with BBC Sport do not expect him to survive in his role.

However, Horner is a powerful and influential man, both inside Red Bull and within F1, and it remains to be seen whether this will lead to his downfall.

Whichever way the hearing on Friday goes, major questions now revolve around Red Bull.

If Horner is removed from his position, either by being sacked or resigning, sources say he would be replaced by an executive
from the Austrian side of Red Bull.

Could that be Oliver Mintzlaff,
former head of RB Leipzig football team and, since co-founder Dietrich Mateschitz's death
in October 2022, chief executive officer of corporate projects with oversight of F1?
is the team about to implode? Power stuggles are always destructive to the core of the team...

German motorsport.com reports what Motorsport-Total put out which is that RB have in fact offered something to Albon, which puts a bit more credibility behind the claims:
research by Motorsport-Total.com has revealed: Red Bull has actually made Albon an offer. However, this is not about a three-year contract that is ready to be signed in order to replace Sergio Perez from 2025 - rather, as a first step, Red Bull just wants to secure an option, a kind of right of first refusal, on Albon's services.
Given RB might be worried about Mercedes signing Alex, a first refusal on his services would make sense rather than the 3-year contract

if this situation in any way impedes the progress to success of the 2026 F1 RB-Ford project ......
will those behind the very recently frustrated F1 Andretti-Cadillac project be saddened ?

It really is crazy this story.

We know nothing about the complaint against Horner.
So I really struggle to see him out of his role

Yeah they said "WHat's shaking"
Its just a media presentation and recording for sponsors, where any mention of the car's performance is banned by the team, usually not the final thing any way.
Will have to wait for actual testing.

The more it goes on without much to show any wrongdoing the more it appears like an inside hit job to force him to step down by instigating fake news to the media about a nothing burger.
