F1 News: Hamilton Slams Red Bull In Cryptic Remark – “If You File A Complaint, You’ll Be Fired”

In a veiled critique aimed at the recent controversy enveloping Red BullLewis Hamilton delivered a cryptic yet potent message. The British racing icon’s comments, made during the Drivers Press Conference preceding the Australian Grand Prix, have stirred considerable discussion within the Formula 1 community.

Key Takeaways:

  • Lewis Hamilton critiqued the handling of a recent incident involving Red Bull’s team principal, Christian Horner, and a female colleague.
  • Despite not directly mentioning Red Bull, Hamilton highlighted the sport’s prevailing male dominance and the negative message sent to female fans.
  • The saga, involving an accusation of inappropriate behaviour and subsequent clearance of Horner, has cast a shadow over the early races of the 2024 season.

Red Bull team chief Christian Horner is currently embroiled in allegations of inappropriate behaviour, as reported by a female colleague within the team. The accusations led to an independent investigation by a British lawyer, orchestrated by Red Bull GmbH, the parent company overseeing the racing team’s operations. The findings of the investigation exonerated Horner, allowing him to continue in his role unimpeded.

However, the narrative took a turn with the suspension of the woman who brought the complaint forward. Reports suggest that she has not accepted the outcome quietly and has challenged the decision made by Red Bull GmbH, seeking a reevaluation of her case.

Lewis Hamilton weighed in on the situation in a manner that, while not naming names, clearly pointed fingers. Speaking ahead of the weekend’s racing in Australia, Hamilton lamented the current state of affairs in Formula 1, stating:

“It is still a male-dominated sport, and we’re living in a time where the message is if you file a complaint, you will be fired, and that is a terrible narrative to be projecting to the world, especially when we’re talking about inclusivity here in the sport.

“We need to make sure we stay true to the core values.”
