Horner’s passionate defence as accuser suspended


The Red Bull boss launched into a passionate defence of his situation when asked by RacingNews365 of the reputational damage he had sustained as a result of the investigation and allegations.

He spoke of the impact on his family – but did not refer to the woman who accused him, despite being asked of the impact on her.

Accuser suspended

That defence came after news broke that Red Bull had suspended the woman at the heart of the allegations against Horner.

Ian Parkes has the latest on that suspension.

Hamilton fined

Meanwhile, there was actual on-track action today as well.

Fernando Alonso was fastest in FP2 – check out the results here – but the headline was Lewis Hamilton receiving a warning for a dangerous incident involving Logan Sargeant during FP2.

He received a warning for that on a tricky day, whilst Mercedes got a €15,000 fine.

Ferrari’s brakes

Elsewhere, Ferrari hinted that it still has work to do to understand the brake issues that plagued Charles Leclerc in Bahrain.

There, the front discs had about 100 degrees of temperature difference between them during the race, leading to his continued locking up.

Senior Performance Engineer Jock Clear says the team should be okay for this weekend in Jeddah, but further work is still needed.
