It’s been revealed that Nikita Mazepin will be talking about his recent split from American-owned F1 team Haas in a press conference tomorrow at 9am GMT. Fans will be very interested to hear his views on what happened as Haas removed not only him, but its leading Russian sponsor from the team after Russian invaded Ukraine earlier this month.
The f1 has cancelled its contract with the Russian Grand Prix and Motorsport UK has confirmed that Russian and Belarussian drivers will not be allowed to compete in the UK.
Originally, the FIA confirmed that Mazepin would be able to race during 2022 after the FIA, and therefore neutral flag. But as more and more pressure was placed on the team, it’s no surprise that they removed the driver as well as its sponsor Uralkali.
Now, the team is looking at Mazepin’s replacement, with all eyes turning to Pietro Fittipaldi.
