FIA issues Horner statement as Massa addresses crashgate lawsuit – RacingNews365

The FIA release Horner statement

Fresh claims have been made into the investigation into Red Bull boss Christian Horner, with BBC Sport claiming that the woman involved has lodged a complaint with the FIA’s Ethics Committee.

It is claimed that the FIA had received two previous whistleblowing reports, including one after the Bahrain Grand Prix, with the grievance against Horner being dismissed by Red Bull GmbH on the eve of the season-opener.

The saga took a new twist when Red Bull suspended the woman on full pay, with the FIA putting out a statement in repsonse to the claims from BBC Sport.
