Ahead of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Christian Horner made headlines when the told the Daily Mail that earlier this year Lewis Hamilton had inquired about a possible racing seat at Red Bull.
Lewis has since completely denied this, but Horner continued to insist that it did happen.
Now, Dutch F1 analyst and Former F1 driver Christijan Albers says, whether it’s true or not, what Horner did was “very unprofessional”.
“You know whether it happened or not, that is actually secretly not relevant at all,” Albers told De Telegraaf.

“What is relevant is the professionalism you have to exude as a team. If you have such a big team under your belt and you are team boss there with such good results, you don’t need this at all.
“I think it’s just not done. Long story short: I just find it very unprofessional. You have to make sure you are classy and that this stays within the living rooms.
“You shouldn’t bring things like this out, because now other drivers do watch out, they will think twice if they are with a team like Ferrari or Mercedes or another top team, and they start talking to another team,” Albers concluded.
