The Lewis Hamilton Mercedes team has fired four staff members for racist bullying.
They fired the men last month for violating their diversity policies, following an investigation into the allegations at their headquarters in Northamptonshire.
A statement from Mercedes confirmed that the breakers – presumably IT staff – left the company on 2 August.

It was reported that the dismissed men were a colleague a & # 39; Muslim terrorist & # 39; and people asked to guess when Ramadan's fast would be broken.
Mercedes said: "We condemn this behavior in the strongest terms and have immediately responded to the complaint. We value the diversity of our employees and it is a source of strength for our team. & # 39;
A Mercedes spokesperson added that Hamilton, who has repeatedly called for more diversity in F1, "echoed the feelings of the company" and agreed with the "quick way it was tackled."
