After an allegedly racist derailment, the Red Bull Formula 1 team fired its replacement driver Jüri Vips. After investigating the incident, the racing team announced that the contract had been terminated.

“The team does not tolerate racism in any form,” said a tweet from world champion Max Verstappen’s employer.

Vips is said to have made racist comments in a stream on the Twitch internet platform. The 21-year-old pilot from Estonia then asked via Instagram for the incident “unreservedly apologize” for the language he used.

“I deeply regret my actions, this is not the example I want to set,” Vips wrote. As a Red Bull Junior, he was a regular driver in the junior series Formula 2, where he occupied seventh place overall.

He was used in the Red Bull in the first Formula 1 practice session at the Spanish Grand Prix in May. The racing series obliges the teams to give a young driver a chance to practice at least twice a season.
