As a community we need to acknowledge that part of the reason we’re so in love, a large part I would argue, is due to the fact that all of his shirts are well tailored. I’m a firm believer in Toto Shirt Supremacy.

In this week’s episode of “RedBull and racism” :
-an employee fired for using racist slurs several times in WhatsApp conversation
-Christian Horner comparing the hate that Max apparently received with the racist wave that Lewis had to face
-Helmut Marko ranting about how Yuki isn’t “like other Japanese”￼￼ that is to say “I believe in the cliché that all Japanese people are polite and obedient”
Following an initial report by Sky Sports, a Red Bull spokesperson confirmed to Motorsport.com that the employee - who was not a publicly-known member of the trackside team - was no longer working with the team.
It comes after a series of WhatsApp messages containing racist language and abuse emerged online earlier this week.
"As publicly acknowledged last week, we condemn racist abuse of any kind and have a zero-tolerance policy to racist behaviour within our organisation," a spokesperson for Red Bull said.
"The person in question is no longer an employee of Red Bull Racing."
Red Bull recently lent its support to Lewis Hamilton after he faced racist abuse in the wake of his collision with Max Verstappen at the British Grand Prix, which prompted a joint statement to be issued by Mercedes, the FIA and F1 condemning the behaviour.
"While we may be fierce rivals on-track, we are all united against racism," said Red Bull on the Monday after the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. "We condemn racist abuse of any kind towards our team, our competitors and our fans.
"As a team we are disgusted and saddened to witness the racist abuse Lewis endured yesterday on social media after the collision with Max. There is never any excuse for it, there is certainly no place for it in our sport and those responsible should be held accountable."
Red Bull team principal Christian Horner added: "Whilst the rivalry is intense on-track for the championship, highly charged emotions should never cross the line into racist abuse.
"We have a zero tolerance approach to racist behaviour within our team and I personally feel strongly that those responsible for this sort of abuse should be held to account.
"We will continue to support the FIA and F1 in order to eradicate this from our sport."
Hamilton said on Thursday in Hungary that he was "amazed" by the outpouring of support shown by the F1 community, and that it was "the first time I didn't stand alone". (X)
Whats the betting this employee never existed and this is simply their PR team trying to make it look like their hard on racism.
Anyway Horner should fire himself and Marko if he truly belives his own words
the racist old white men appears
Reb bull: Imma collecting them.
*proud dad look*
He did not…
Us at Horner and Marko:
I’ve never wanted to kick someone in the balls as much as I want to kick Horner in the balls
He was so close. So close to saying the right thing smh. But alas, Christian *facepalm* Horner everyone.
I can't believe Tory Horner was a f1blr joke based on bad vibes™ and now we have to endure actual Tory Horner everyday exposing his ass in 4k 😩
Everytime Horner speaks he's digging a bigger hole for himself at which point will RedBull decide to take action? Yeah they perform good but this is a PR disaster pls fire him and take Helmut too
Horner you cannot compare racial abuse and general online abuse. They are not the same, shut the fuck up. Seriously no one cares.
Christian Horner on racist abuse aimed at Lewis Hamilton: “Of course we don’t condone that, Max received abuse as well by the way”
AND THIS IS WHY I AM ANTI CHRISTIAN HORNER THIS MAN DESERVES THE DEEPEST OF HELL
Look abuse is NOT a competition.
But when a white man tries to play the comparison game with the sports ONLY EVER BLACK DRIVER who also happens to be one of the most successful?
Fuck all the way off. No one needs these white tears when systemic racism is baked into basically everything.
Red Bull and Horner and Verstappen should all be ashamed of their behavior.
As a BIWOC I’m beyond disgusted with how they’ve handled this whole situation and I don’t seem them as redeemable because these are choices they’ve made and I don’t see them learning from this.
