Ford is awaiting the results of Red Bull's on-going investigation into allegations of inappropriate behaviour by Christian Horner - and has stressed its 'family values.'

Horner is currently subject to an investigation by parent company Red Bull GmbH after a female member of staff alledged inappropriate behaviour from the Team Principal and CEO.

Dutch media have today reported that lawyers acting on Horner's behalf attempted to settle with the complainant over allegations of sexual impropriety.

Horner has denied all the allegations against him, and at the launch of the RB20, stressed it was 'business as usual' as the investigation continues.

Ford is set to become technical engine partner to Red Bull in 2026, with global head of Ford Performance Motorsport Mark Rushbrook confirming it is monitoring the situation.

"As a family company, and a company that holds itself to very high standards of behaviour and integrity, we do expect the same from our partners," Rushbrook explained to AP Sports at Daytona ahead of this weekend's NASCAR season-opening Daytona 500.

"It appears to us, and what we’ve been told, [is] that Red Bull is taking the situation very seriously. And of course, they’re worried about their brand, as well.

"That’s why they’ve got an independent investigation and until we see what truth comes out of that, it’s too early for us to comment on it all."
