Red Bull Racing have parted ways with a team member who used racist language in personal text exchanges.

The exchanges came to light after the texts were posted on social media.

The individual was not a high-profile member of the trackside team.

A Red Bull spokesperson said: “We condemn racist abuse of any kind.

“We have a zero-tolerance approach to racist behaviour within our team.

“The person in question is no longer an employee of Red Bull Racing. We will not be commenting further at this stage.”
