Sebastian Vettel has warned all bigots their "time is ticking" and that they will become "extinct" after delivering a heartwarming message to aspiring F1 drivers in the LGBTQ+ community.
The German's Aston Martin team has teamed up with Racing Pride to celebrate Pride Month and raise awareness of the "strength of the LGBTQ+ community within motorsport".
Speaking during a fan call-in organised by F1, Vettel denounced discriminatory behaviour and encouraged youngsters to fight for what they believe in.
"I'm quite happy to be in a world where certain topics become more and more aware," said Vettel.
"I think any form of discrimination towards, not even just minorities, but to any sorts of people depending on where they come from, what they like, their identity in whatever form, is wrong and shouldn't play a role in deciding on your path.
"So I can only say 'Be proud of who you are, what you are and what you like and stand up for it'.
"To all the people that are obviously of a different opinion, I think their time is ticking and, you know, they are going to be extinct."
