Red Bull suspends junior driver Juri Vips because of racial slur

Red Bull Racing has suspended Formula Two driver Juri Vics until an investigation is completed after the Estonian used racist language during a live stream. The team made the announcement on Tuesday.

Red Bull Racing suspended Juri Vips, junior driver, from all team duties immediately in order to conduct an investigation into the incident.

“As an organization, we condemn all forms of abuse and have a zero tolerance policy for racist language and behaviour within our organization.”

Vips, 21 years old, later posted a message to Instagram in which he apologized and promised to fully cooperate with the investigation.

He wrote, “I want to unreservedly apologise for the offensive language used during live gaming stream earlier in today.”

“This language is completely unacceptable and does not reflect the values and principles I believe in. This is not the type of example I want to set. I deeply regret my actions.

Vips, who is a driver for the British-based Hitech grand prix team in Formula Two in Formula Two, is currently ranked seventh.

Red Bull’s Formula One vehicle was his Friday practice for the Spanish Grand Prix.

Christian Horner: Toto Wolff’s F1 safety concerns: “Element of Theatre”

Christian Horner, principal of Red Bull, has accused Toto Wolff at Mercedes of exacerbating concerns about the ride of Formula One’s current generation.

The new technical regulations that were introduced this winter have had an impact on the F1 car’s ride. Some cars bounced dramatically over bumps, while others are susceptible to porpoising which is an aerodynamic phenomenon that causes cars to bounce uncontrollably on their suspension.

Baku’s bumpy street circuit was impacted by bouncing problems last week. The FIA, the sport’s governing body decided to intervene for safety reasons and introduced a technical directive (TD), to control the bouncing.

The details of the FIA’s intervention are still being finalised. A meeting about the issue at Saturday’s Canadian Grand Prix saw Wolff, who argued for the changes, and Horner, who argued against them.

Wolff described his rivals’ positions as “disingenuous” and added that their behavior in the meeting had been “pitiful”.

Horner, whose Red Bull vehicles have won six of the last six races, and are the least affected, has long argued the bouncing issue is not something the FIA should address, but one for the teams to resolve independently.

Ferrari is questioning the validity of the FIA’s recent actions. Binotto stated that technical directives are meant to clarify rather than modify rules.

Horner stated that Ferrari had presented its position on the TD, and Toto is campaigning to change regulations. Horner noted that his car was very fast today in Sunday’s Canadian race. There was not a lot of bouncing. “And it was pointed out to him that maybe his problems were not the same as everyone’s.

Horner was asked if Wolff was playing up to the Netflix cameras that were present at the meeting to record footage of “Drive to Survive” season 2. Horner replied: “I think there had been an element of theatre in that meeting. So maybe with Lewis’s new movie coming down, he’s getting into role for it.”

A technical directive from the FIA allows teams to use a second stay between their main bodywork and the car’s floor on either side to increase stiffness and prevent porpoising. Mercedes was the only team that tested a second stay during Friday practice. However, it was removed from the car before qualifying.

Ferrari and Red Bull were both puzzled by the speed Mercedes produced the part, despite the fact that the technical directive authorizing the second stay was issued only on Thursday.

“The second stay was particularly disappointing because it must be discussed in a technical forum that is biased to sort out one team’s problems. This was the only team that showed up with it even before the TD. Horner said, “So work that one out.”

Horner stressed that it was the responsibility of the teams who are having trouble with bouncing to change their designs, and not the FIA to fix the problems.

Horner stated that the teams had some of the best engineering talent in the country. “Things are going to converge.

“It is unlikely that we will be sitting around next year discussing the bouncing, even if the regulations are left as they are. These cars are still quite new. As teams make improvements to their cars, you will likely see them address some of these issues.

“Technical regulations can’t be changed halfway through a season. A team should not field a car that is unsafe. They have that option. The FIA if they feel a particular car is unsafe, they always have a red flag.
