Tänavusel hooajal kaassõitjate poolt kõvasti kriitikat saanud Venemaa vormelipiloot Nikita Mazepin jätkab Haasi meeskonnas ka 2022. aastal, avalikustas tiimijuht Gunther Steiner.
Steiner told EXE News that the team could lose its second newcomer, the young German Mick Schumacher. According to the team leader, the reason is that it is a tripartite agreement. In addition to Haas and Schumacher, the Ferrari Academy is also a party to the transaction.
“As the agreement is tripartite and Ferrari is involved, some things still need to be fixed,” Steiner said of Schumacher’s future. However, the team leader emphasized that he was very optimistic about the German continuing.
However, the situation of 22-year-old Mazepin is much clearer. As his father Dmitri’s company Uralkali will continue as the name sponsor of the team, Mazepin will continue to sit in the Haas formula in 2022.
Mazepin, like Schumacher, has not opened a points account this year. Of the nine stages so far, the Russian has only been able to overtake Schumacher once.
