Juri Vips: Red Bull suspend reserve driver over racist slur

Red Bull have suspended their test and reserve driver Juri Vips after he used offensive language in an online gaming stream. Red Bull said the 21-year-old Estonian would not conduct any team duties “with immediate effect, pending a full investigation into the incident”. He used a racist slur in a live-streamed game he was playing with fellow Red Bull junior Liam Lawson. Vips also used homophobic language on a separate occasion in the same stream. Red Bull said in a statement posted on social media: “We condemn abuse of any kind and have a zero-tolerance policy to racist language or behaviour within our organisation.”.
