After racist insults at the Formula 1 team Aston Martin, the racing team of four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel has taken action.
Accordingly, the cooperation with two employees of a supplier was terminated. “We have a zero tolerance policy towards discriminatory behaviour of any kind,” a statement from the team said via Twitter on Friday.
“We acted quickly,” the racing team stressed, after an employee made racist and also homophobic insults towards it public on British broadcaster Sky News. It had started right when he started his job in February, he reported.
Meanwhile, Aston Martin’s German driver Vettel is one of the racing drivers who have been vehemently campaigning for human rights and equal treatment for some time. He had even spoken out in favour of a lifelong ban after sexist incidents most recently among fans at the race weekend in Spielberg, Austria.
