Daniel Ricciardo: Christian Horner deserves a fair resolution after allegations

Daniel Ricciardo has voiced his hope for a "fair outcome" regarding the investigation into allegations made against Red Bull team principal Christian Horner.

Horner finds himself under scrutiny after a female colleague accused him of inappropriate and controlling behaviour. 

Denying these claims, the 50-year-old has maintained his role as Red Bull's team principal and is currently en route to Bahrain for the season-opening grand prix this weekend.

When questioned about the investigation and its potential impact, former Red Bull driver Ricciardo emphasised the need for a just resolution. 

Given his close relationship with Horner during his time with the team, Ricciardo expressed his concern over the matter's potential personal impact.

"Coming into the test, obviously we were aware of everything going on," Ricciardo told the media.

"But would I say was it an on-track distraction? No, it wasn't. Knowing we have so little time as well, it was really 'I need to focus on me, my team, my driving' and trying to start this week as strongly as possible.

"Do I feel for him through all of this? Yes, I've known Christian for a long time.

"He's always been great with me. So I do hope that there is a fair outcome and resolution soon, hopefully before this weekend, so it's not really a distraction for him or obviously anyone in the team.

"But honestly, for us, we've had to really just focus on ourselves and trying to get on with the task."
