‘Horner wants to leave Red Bull Racing for prestigious position elsewhere’

The questions that the Red Bull Racing team principal will face on Thursday when he enters the F1 paddock for the first time are predictable. The woman who is accusing him of engaging in cross-border behavior has filed an appeal with the FIA’s ethics committee, and the media will undoubtedly be interested in hearing his thoughts on these matters. The next chapter in the Horner saga has already begun: the British citizen wants to take over as CEO of Red Bull GmbH.

There has been a power struggle between the Austrian side (49 percent of shares) and the Thai side (51 percent) in the Red Bull company since the passing of co-owner Dietrich Mateschitz. It is now evident that Christian Horner has aligned himself with the Thai camp, which has maintained him in his role in spite of claims of acting inappropriately toward a now-suspended employee.

Thai investor in Horner

Bild has been informed that Horner’s aspiration to become CEO of Red Bull GmbH is now backed by Chalerm Yoovidhya (73), the Thai majority shareholder of Red Bull. Current executives Alexander Kirchmayr (finance), Franz Watzlawick (sales), and Oliver Mintzlaff (sports) would be replaced in that scenario.

The German outlet claims that Horner has the Thai by the tail when it comes to support, as Yoovidhya has shown him the way. In the event that the British driver triumphed, Red Bull would recruit Alex Albon, a Thai driver with a strong chance of taking home the world championship with Red Bull in 2025. Particularly if Max Verstappen finds housing elsewhere for the upcoming season after growing weary of the unrest at Red Bull Racing.
