The allegations were initially reported on Monday by the Dutch morning newspaper, De Telegraaf. While Red Bull Racing denied having any knowledge of said allegations, Red Bull’s base in Austria released a quick statement announcing that the company has launched an internal investigation against Christian Horner and is taking the matter very seriously, evident by the fact that they hired an external independent investigator to look into the matter.

In light of the recent events, Jack Izzard, the PR boss and CEO of Rhizome Media, drew parallels between Geri’s case and Victoria Beckham’s case by saying, “If they’re confident that the allegations are baseless and that the independent investigation will vindicate Mr Horner, they could put on a public show of marital unity like Geri’s fellow Spice Girl Victoria Beckham did when it emerged her husband David had been having an affair.”

He has cautioned Halliwell that her decision to support her husband may cause irreparable harm to her public image which was once emblematic of Girl Power.

On the other hand, according to a recent tweet from the Daily Star, the situation has weighed in heavily on the former Spice Girl and she has been “too upset to talk” to anyone since allegations were made against Horner. The video clip explained, “A source told the Daily Mail, ‘Geri seems to be simply too upset to engage with anyone. Just lots of tears. She will stand by him and be at his side just as much as she has always been. She never misses a race, and that will not change.’

Despite everything that is on the line for the couple, Halliwell has maintained her stance to support Christian regardless of the outcome of the internal investigation. Horner is facing a lengthy interrogation today, which was initially thought to be held at Red Bull Racing’s headquarters in Milton Keynes. However, a recent update suggests that the hearing will take place in a central London location. The hearing will determine the future of the Brit in Formula 1. He is fighting a two-way battle, trying to protect both his job and his reputation as one of the most respected figures in Formula 1.
