Nascar driver Kyle Larson was suspended by the American series and then fired by his team Chip Ganassi after using a racial slur during a recent online race.
"After the Kyle Larson incident, the team sent us a message reminding us how to behave during broadcasts," Latifi, who was set to make his F1 debut for Williams in 2020, told La Presse.
"Personally, I know what is acceptable and what is not," the Canadian added.
"I am associated with a team that has sponsors and they all have an image to maintain. I know I have to be careful, but that doesn't stop me from being myself and having fun," Latifi added.
Indeed, in just his first few weeks on the streaming platform Twitch, 24-year-old Latifi already has over 23,000 subscribers.
"I never thought I would do that, but it was suggested to me after the first virtual grand prix," he said. "It allows everyone to get closer to you other than your work during a race weekend."
Latifi said he is enjoying racing online.
"It's a good way to keep my brain alert," he said. "The driving is not identical to reality, but the mental process is similar."
