The investigation into allegations of inappropriate behavior made against Red Bull’s team principal, Christian Horner, by a female employee remains ongoing, with Ford’s CEO Jim Farley reiterating the company’s stance on the matter.

In a letter addressed to Red Bull, Farley expressed growing impatience with the lack of resolution or clear indication on the timeline for resolving the issue. Despite Horner denying any wrongdoing and Ford maintaining trust in its Formula 1 partner, the American manufacturer emphasized its unwavering commitment to its values. Farley stated:

“As we have indicated previously, without satisfactory response, Ford’s values are non-negotiable. It is imperative that our racing partners share and demonstrate a genuine commitment to those same values. My team and I are available at any time to discuss this matter. We remain insistent on, and hopeful, for a resolution we can all stand behind.”
