The outcome of the investigation into Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner will be announced this week, RacingNews365 understands.

Red Bull F1's parent company Red Bull GmbH placed the team boss under investigation earlier in February, after an allegation of inappropriate behaviour was made against Horner by a female employee.

As part of the investigation which has now concluded, Horner was subjected to 60 hours of questioning and giving evidence, with him continuing to deny the allegations.

A specialist barrister conducted the external investigation, which included an interview with the Briton on February 9. Horner was present at the launch of the RB20 back on February 15, whilst he was also in the Red Bull garage last week during pre-season testing.

It is understood that the report handed over to the Red Bull GmbH board is over 100 pages, with it being their final decision as to whether Horner will remain in charge of the Milton Keynes-based team.

With Horner having led Red Bull since they entered F1 back in 2005, he is the longest-serving Team Principal on the current grid. During testing, several high profile members of the paddock stated their desire for the investigation to be concluded quickly.
