Kick the can down the road. Horner will be just fine. If this was actually serious, he'd be done by now. Media journalists are just getting bored.

we still donīt know if it was sending dick pics, than he is toast, or if a snowflake could not handle a louder voice in the office and was crying in her pillow, than he will be fine...or not. RedBull headquarter (Mark Mateschitz) would like to get rid of him but the Thai billionaire Chalerm Yoovidhya holds the majority of the stacks of RB F1, and he is backing Horner.

if it was dick picks, he'd be on the curb by now. It's not. He's just a tough boss, and someone didn't like it. The F1 tabloids jumped all over it because it was a female who took issue and they knew they'd get clicks.

What do you rank the liveries of 2024? i'll go first,
(ALL PERSONAL OPINION)

1. Williams (Totally not biased at all.)
2. VCARB (I love this one, looks like a can of redbull)
3. Kick-Sauber (Sauber just cant have a bad livery)
4. Ferrari (Cheese stripes )
5. Mclaren (Stealth mode basically)
6. Mercedes (Refer to redbull)
7. Red bull (I get that its an evolution, but it bores me at this point.)
8. Aston Martin (Less green, less likey.)
9. Haas (Wow, they aren't back-markers in this situation. Would've been if Alpine actually gave us that pink camo.)
10. Alpine (Come on, even Andretti RENDERS are better, and they got shafted from F1 entirely.. still pissed about that.)

Well, Horner's job is safe. No surprise. Just a bunch of tabloids needing to justify their job.

I am pretty sure that 2024 is the last season for Horner working for RedBull

The team is on fire. Why on earth would they get rid of him?

His job is safe. This was their opportunity to oust him if there ever was one.

Horner wanted more influence, more power, Mateschitz junior and Mintzlaff did not like it, they had other plans. These two want to get rid of Horner.


Marko sides with Mateschitz and Mintzlaff, and Verstappen sides with Marko.


Only the Thai Family Yoovidhya with their majority shareholding is backing Horner.

Horner has done some much for RB-F1. They could get rid of him, but no doubt he'd end up at a competitor and if Newey followed, Max probably would too. RB-F1 would implode overnight.

Looks like 2024 will be a continuation of 2023 - Congrats VER on 4th WC and RB CC. Only glaring difference is Alpine going backward.

Default Some teething problems

Yeah, Max disappeared over the horizon - again. Near the end of the race, his fastest lap was something like 1.4 seconds quicker than the next driver's.
Leclerc looked like he had some kind brake or steering issue. Either he figured it out or it fixed itself later in the race. At least he looked a little bit better.
Sainz looked good.
The Mercedes both had battery problems that hurt them.
So, if the non-Red Bulls can fix some of this, there's some hope for a non-snoozer in the coming races.

It is understood that FIA president, Mohammed ben Sulayem is under investigation for seeking to interfere with the result of the 2023 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

Not really shocked reading the news of FIA president trying to manipulate a race/results.

While it's difficult to say definitively who will lead the pack this year, it's definitely going to be an exciting battle. Red Bull's recent news adds another layer of intrigue to the season.

Tough break for SAI (and Ferrari) - get well soon and hope your surgeon is also a smooth operator. Hoping (BEA/BER?) keeps things interesting without crashing out.

looks like Marko was the leak at RedBull, and that Marko is forced to leave RedBull...and that Max Verstappen will leave too if Marko gets fired. Their new team will be: Mercedes

you have read it here first

So who will come in 3rd? LEC, ALO, NOR or PIA? Not bad 1st race outing for BEA to this point. Alpine look hopeless. May the grumblings about Andretti/Cadillac get louder and louder...
