What's behind efforts to bring down Red Bull F1 team boss Horner

OPINION: Christian Horner has been in the eye of a Formula 1 storm after being subject to an internal Red Bull investigation following allegations from a female colleague. After being cleared of wrongdoing, leaked alleged evidence reopened the conversation, but why does it appear that someone is keen to bring down the team principal?

Beware. The dates may not perfectly align, but there and growing indications that some want Formula 1 to play out its own Ides of March moment.

Our modern day Caesar is Christian Horner, whose ruling of Red Bull has left some of those who were his closest allies jealous of his power and the spotlight he got for achievements, unhappy about his behaviour, plus resentful of his authority. A plot has been afoot, with media leaks, anonymous emails and now public calls for his head all laying bare that there is a concerted campaign to bring him down.
