Red Bull Racing Boss Christian Horner Advised to Amicably Step Down From Post, According to Reports – News18

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has been advised to step down from his post at the helm of the F1 racing team following an internal investigation into an accusation of inappropriate behaviour with a colleague.
