'I want to be clear' Red Bull chief clarifies Juri Vips situation after Horner's remark

“Of course, words are not a reason to destroy the career of a talented athlete. Especially as he apologised. But these are global trends.”

Hitech Grand Prix decided to keep Vips on their books, to the dismay of F2 bosses at the time. F2 released a statement of its own after Hitech GP announced they would allow Vips to continue racing for them.

“Following the recent incident involving Jiri Vips, F2 would like to reaffirm that the use of racist or discriminatory language cannot be tolerated in any environment,” it read. “Hitech Grand Prix’s decision today is surprising and not one we would have taken. We will monitor the situation carefully with them to ensure that such behaviour is properly addressed.”
