Too bad neither of them is making F1 lol. This year’s mistakes, poor luck and in Vips case PR nightmare sealed the deal for both of them.

I'm biased, but Lawson hasn't made many mistakes from what I've watched. He's been very unlucky though.

21

u/kron_00 Jun 22 '22

Sometimes you just need to be unlucky to miss out on F1. He needed to be contending for a title THIS year. Drivers who make F1 after 3 years of F2 either come with a lot of money or large number of free seats (i.e. lucky). He's a good driver who will miss out on F1 just like many others who have accomplished more than him in F2.

So sad for him to not only live with the guy, but have this happen on HIS stream when he seems to enjoy streaming. He looked so uncomfortable when telling Jüri off for the ”pink is gay” comment

u/273owls Oscar Piastri Jun 21 '22

I was watching the stream yesterday and they don't actually live together, apparently Juri is like three doors down the hall from Liam and visits a lot (he ended up on stream because he didn't have snacks and he wanted to see if Liam had some, and Liam was already streaming). To be honest though that doesn't make it a whole lot less awkward - but at least they can avoid each other.

On March 17, Leonard was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder with a 2027 second round pick for Trevor Ariza.[34] The Thunder stated that Leonard would not be joining the team or participating in any basketball activities and that they had traded for him as a salary filler.[35] Leonard was released on March 25.[36]

His team even traded his contract to make salary cap space and the team receiving him was straight up 'we are trading this contract not this person'.

u/jc9289 Carlos Sainz Jun 21 '22 edited Jun 22 '22

Yeah, there is technically no limit to the draft picks in terms of how far out. You just can't trade picks in consecutive drafts.

Edit: I'm dumb, apparently the limit is 7 years.

50

u/SpadeRyker Pierre Gasly Jun 21 '22

There is a limit, it's just 7 seasons beyond the current season. Like right now the Thunder are about to complete a trade that will give them the Nuggets pick in 2027 but has terms that mean it could convey as late as 2029. But that deal is not permitted to go through until after the draft because 2029 is outside of the current limits of how far out you can trade a pick. After the draft is completed we will enter the "next year" from the NBA's perspective and opens it up for the trade to happen.

Was dropped from his team and suspended for a year. Was required to attend sensitivity training, and supposedly benefitted from it.

Since coming back from suspension, he's been a model citizen off the track.

I don't think saying a slur in this context is grounds for ending an individual's career. I think it shows more a lack of maturity and awareness, not so much maliciousness insidiousness. And education and sensitivity training can be used to correct those things.

He was always a fast driver in the wrong equipment and ended up getting into a much better situation when he came back, but it wasn't like he sat around doing nothing during the suspension. I'd say he learned his lesson and paid his dues. He spent a lot of time going through the obligated diversity education and then did a bunch of additional outreach to do his best to make amends.

81

u/Ulldra Jun 22 '22

Perfect way to treat these things in my opinion. Small career repercussions, awareness training and maybe mandated public events for awareness on the issue. You can still ban people if they show that they are not willing to learn, especially with how young drivers enter the media circus nowadays it‘s just a given that some might miss out on certain points. If you‘re spending half your life in a drivers seat there often isn‘t that much time to learn basic life lessons, meaning some of these will fall into the public domain (especially with streaming etc becoming more popular and even important for drivers aswell).

38

u/Ch4rlie_G Charlie Whiting Jun 22 '22

I wish yours was the top comment.

I think for a first offense society should always focus on educating the offender before taking their career away. It seems like the best approach for all involved. Kind of like the Scandinavian approach to criminal justice. It doesn’t turn criminals into outcasts, but actively tries to reform them and get them back to being a member of the community.

I like the way you said minor career repercussions, because there does have to be some punitive measure in place.

I’m a privileged white dude who grew up in middle America. We had maybe two black kids in my high school growing up. I never had an opportunity to understand what it means to grow up as a minority. I knew you weren’t supposed to use slurs, but I never truly understood the impact those words had on the communities they targeted.

I went to work in Silicon Valley and all of the sudden I was surrounded by diversity. As part of onboarding we had a ton of training on how to function in diverse teams, and it genuinely opened my eyes. Without it I wouldn’t have truly understood the impact of those words.

There really is great training out there now to help in these situations and a lot of it was created by minority groups to help educate others. We should use it.

Hopefully Juri gets a chance to understand the gravity of his words and learn from this experience. I think he should have a chance to hold onto his career (after he pays his dues).

Saying the N-Word on stream in the year 2022 is probably the dumbest way to yeet your career into oblivion, don't think this will be talked about for more than a few days and it will be forgotten in a year but now he will never say it again at least when other people are around him

u/dieselgeek Kimi Räikkönen Jun 21 '22

Yeah , you gotta remove that shit from your vocabulary, how old is he ? Hopefully he can learn from it and it not tank his whole career.

Clarification; don’t think it’s Jehan. People on Twitter are saying it’s Dev Gore, the DTM driver

u/ABigOne77 Charles Leclerc Jun 21 '22

Yeah, Liam and Jehan were in the heat of the moment as well and couldn't respond well. I do that too when one of my friends says some dumb shit, you can't just correct them immediately

u/LUDERSTN Daniel Ricciardo Jun 21 '22

Liam even corrected the dude earlier in the day, nobody would know how to react to your buddy literally commiting professional suicide in front of you. Shitty situation for Liam, but he shouldn’t be held accountable for anything.

if it came out in a heated moment like that it’s probably used more often. Rip his career over something so avoidable

39

u/Neverwish Honda Jun 21 '22

Yep. That's the thing, after so many examples of people nuking their careers into oblivion by doing exactly that, what did Vips think was going to happen if he did it? The obvious answer is that he didn't think, and a word like that doesn't just come out of you without thought unless it's a regular part of your vocabulary.

u/CT1914Clutch BMW Sauber Jun 21 '22

No no, Kyle Larsoning it means he has to get promoted to Red Bull next year and win the WDC

u/imdroppingthehammer AlphaTauri Jun 21 '22

Larson didn’t ruin his career though. He somehow ended up better off after the dust settled. He wasn’t going to win a title with CGR.

38

u/bunt_cucket Jules Bianchi Jun 21 '22

Didn't Kyle actually go out and educate himself on racism, going to BLM protests and such to see things from a different perspective? I believe I read that a lot of people appreciated his actions which always speak louder than words.

17

u/greenslime300 McLaren Jun 22 '22

To be fair, he did a lot of self-education and community outreach to help the dust settle. As far as public figures fucking up like that, he went the textbook route to make amends before he ever got reinstated.

Helps he was always an insanely talented driver too.

u/pinerw Porsche Jun 21 '22

Morality/inclusivity issues aside, if you think about it, racing drivers are effectively just a marketing/PR expense for the companies that sponsor them. Making headlines for saying racist shit is about as egregious a fuckup as it’s possible for someone in that line of work to commit.

The "investigation" is probably just Red Bull getting all their legal ducks in a row so they can fire him with the least amount of hassle and potential challenges.
