FOUR staff members have been sacked by the Mercedes Formula 1 team after an investigation into discrimination.
The team have confirmed the individuals were dismissed on 2 August this year over “breaches of our diversity and equality policy”.
No details have been released about the incidents, but they are understood to be of a racist or religious nature.
“We condemn this behaviour in the strongest terms and acted immediately,” a Mercedes team statement added.
“We value the diversity of our employees and it is a source of strength for our team.
“Our working environment is based on appreciation and mutual respect.”
The members of staff had been working at the Mercedes team headquarters in Northamptonshire.
