The couple are one of the biggest in sport

Bernie Ecclestone has revealed Christian Horner has told him everything's 'fantastic' between himself and Geri Halliwell.

Horner was recently cleared of misconduct by Red Bull after a female employee alleged misconduct, with the Briton always denying the claims.

He has since overseen the first four races of the season in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Australia and Japan.

However, the saga remains ongoing with Horner's accuser appealing Red Bull's decision to clear the team principal.

Geri has stood by Horner amid the ongoing saga.

And Ecclestone, speaking to the Daily Mail, has claimed the 50-year-old has told him that everything is 'fantastic' between the couple.

"It's peace in our time," he said.

"And Christian informs me everything's fantastic with Geri."

Geri supported Horner during the first race of the season, holding his hand in the paddock despite the scrutiny they were facing at the time.

The Spice Girls icon also joined her husband for the second Grand Prix in Saudi, with Max Verstappen winning the first two events of the campaign.

Ecclestone was best man at the relationship between Horner and Geri back in 2019.

Verstappen has been linked with a move away from Red Bull, with his father previously saying Horner had to leave the team.

But Ecclestone says Verstappen is likely to stay, despite talk of a blockbuster move to Mercedes.

"Max (Verstappen) seems likely to stay, and it’s like all wars in so much as people get over things and move on," he added.

"After the Second World War you weren’t allowed to mention Germany, and the Jews wouldn’t buy anything from there. It was understandable.

"But after not too long everyone forgets that and they are buying Mercedes.

"So I don’t see why anyone would want to push Christian out, certainly not as time acts as a great healer.

"He is doing a super job, and a few weeks can make a big difference.

"He has Geri’s support, and the whole team is doing well. There is no logical reason to upset that balance."

Meanwhile, a friend of Horner's accuser recently claimed the employee feels 'upset' and 'lonely' after being suspended by Red Bull.

"It's impossible for people to understand what it's like for her," the friend is quoted as saying by the BBC.

"She can't talk and she won't talk.

"But I can tell you what it is doing to her.

"Every time I have asked her something, she breaks down in tears and says she's got no-one to talk to because she's not allowed to talk.

"She is very upset, very angry, very scared, very intimidated, very lonely.

"And I think it's impossible for people to understand without being in her shoes what it's like for her."

They added: "It [the saga] is registered to go to an employment tribunal, which is public.

"As a friend, I can tell you I would assume that Horner, like he has done every step of the way, will do everything he can to make sure that the employee tribunal is not public."
