Vips not receiving any support says Marko

Juri Vips is not receiving “any support” from Red Bull following a racially-linked incident. That is the insistence of Dr Helmut Marko, after the energy drink company kicked out the 21-year-old reserve and Formula 2 driver for saying the ‘N-word’ during a live online gaming stream. However, team boss Christian Horner said subsequently that Red Bull will in fact keep “supporting” Vips “from a mental health and educational perspective”. “I want to be clear,” Marko, Red Bull’s top Austrian consultant, told ORF Tirol. “Of course words are not a reason to destroy the career of a talented athlete,” said Marko.
