is the team about to implode? Power stuggles are always destructive to the core of the team...Wouter wrote: ↑Thu Feb 08, 2024 9:48 pmhttps://www.bbc.com/sport/formula1/68244253
.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?
