Racing driver says suspended Juri Vips not racist

British-Pakistani racing driver Enaam Ahmed has leapt to the defence of suspended Red Bull junior Juri Vips. Estonian Vips, 21, was the Red Bull junior who was arguably closest to getting the call-up to the Formula 1 grid and a frontrunner in Formula 2. “As an organisation we condemn abuse of any kind and have a zero-tolerance policy to racist language or behaviour within our organisation,” Red Bull said. Vips later apologised for his “unacceptable” language on social media, and his Formula 2 team boss, Hitech owner Oliver Oakes, said he was “shocked and appalled”. “The comments made by Juri are offensive and completely not reflective of Hitech’s inclusive values,” Oakes said.
