Ralf Schumacher feels that Red Bull would be able to carry on as normal if Christian Horner leaves the team after the internal investigation into his behaviour.

It is understood that the final report from an external barrister has been submitted to Red Bull GmbH for consideration after Horner was subject to a complaint from a female member of Red Bull staff.

The Team Principal and CEO of the team was present in pre-season testing and is set to arrive in Bahrain before this weekend's Grand Prix, having denied all the allegations against him.

Horner is the only Team Principal in Red Bull's history since its debut in 2005, and is currently the longest-serving boss on the grid - as well as one of the most successful of all-time.

Should he depart, six-time Grand Prix winner Schumacher feels the team would simply move on.

"The right structures are in place," Schumacher told German news agency DPA.

"There has been unrest in the team and I hear that there have also been problems behind the scenes - the question is whether people are so divided that they can no longer work together.

"For Max, who has real confidants in his father Jos and [Red Bull Motorsport Advisor] Helmut Marko, it is important that nothing changes in his relationship with the engineers.

"[Should Horner depart], then I don't see any danger for the team - I can imagine that another person could also lead Red Bull Racing."
