Red Bull Racing junior driver Juri Vips has had his contract terminated by the Formula 1 team following an investigation into his use of a racial slur in a video game stream.

The incident occurred last week, when Vips participated in a video game stream online with fellow F2 driver Liam Lawson. During play, Vips referred to another player by the N-word in a clip that was later shared widely on Twitter.

In the immediate aftermath, Red Bull announced Vips would be suspended pending an investigation into the incident.
