Christian Horner has insisted he will remain as Red Bull Team Principal and CEO ahead of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix as the situation regarding allegations of inappropriate behaviour continues to overhang F1.

The saga surrounding Horner was the biggest talking point across the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix weekend, though the issue had cooled somewhat for race day.

Max Verstappen proved the on-track performance was not being affected by off-track matters with a commanding victory at the Bahrain International Circuit as he and teammate Sergio Perez secured a one-two finish.

"The perfect start, a very dominant race," Horner told Sky Sports F1.

"I have to say a big thank you to all the men and women back at Milton Keynes who have worked so hard and come up with another great car.

"It's testimony to that hard work that goes on behind the scenes, so a great team performance to get that one-two finish and maximum points."

On whether Red Bull was as united off-track as it seemed it was on-track, Horner replied: "Yes absolutely.

"We are a very strong team, we've got tremendous support and tremendous partners, great shareholders behind us as well.

"You don't achieve this kind of result by not being united."

Asked if he was confident he would be leading the team at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, Horner insisted: "Absolutely, I wouldn't be here otherwise."
