Formula One says it is investigating claims of “unacceptable” harassment reported by some fans attending the Austrian Grand Prix weekend.
Posts on social media complained of sexist, racist and homophobic slurs at the sold-out event at Spielberg’s Red Bull Ring.
In a statement on Sunday F1 said it had been made aware of “reports that some fans have been subject to completely unacceptable comments by others at the event”.
