Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner has insisted focus is fully on the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix after being cleared of inappropriate behaviour.

Allegations made by a Red Bull Racing employee were dismissed following an independent investigation launched by Red Bull GmbH, which has been ongoing since early February.

The case had overshadowed the Milton Keynes-based outfit's launch of the RB20 and pre-season test at the Bahrain International Circuit last week, with the issue expected to continue overhanging the team given the employees right to appeal the decision.

'I'm pleased to be here'

Asked by Sky Sports ahead of practice in Bahrain whether the result of the investigation was expected, Horner explained: "I am just pleased that the process is over. I obviously can't comment about it but we are here now very much to focus on the grand prix and the season ahead and trying to defend both of our titles."

On whether he was hopeful it was the end of the matter, Horner replied: "I can't give any further comment. The process has been conducted and concluded."

Pushed on whether there were any regrets that the issue was made public, the Briton reiterated: "I am not going to be able to give any further comment but I am pleased to be here in Bahrain with the team and focused on the season ahead."
