Agustin Canapino and Juncos Hollinger Racing have both responded via social media after fans of the Argentinian made threats against Arrow McLaren’s Thèo Pourchaire.

The threats were made following a racing incident between the pair at the Turn 3 hairpin during Sunday’s chaotic Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix.

Agustin Canapino tweeted on Tuesday morning:

Juncos Hollinger Racing released their own separate statement on Tuesday morning saying:

Following the racing incident that occurred in Detroit we have seen a rise of online abuse toward our competitors. Abuse, hatred, and harassment in any form is unacceptable. It is not tolerated within the Juncos Hollinger Racing community, and is not representative of who we are as a team.

We are working with those affected to identify the individuals responsible, and any violators of this policy will be blocked from the Juncos Hollinger Racing community.

We are committed to creating a safe and inclusive environment for all, and believe that no one should be made to feel unwelcome. In racing, we will always hold high regard and respect for each other, no matter what happens on track. We expect our fans and community to do the same. As INDYCAR fans, we must all work together to create a community where everyone is treated with respect and kindness.

In 2023, Callum Ilott was the target of similar threats from Canapino fans following on a track incident between the pair.

In Detroit on Sunday, Pourchaire finished the race in tenth place while Canapino came home in 12th.
