The doors to Formula 1 could close under Nikita Mazepin’s nose before he can even pass them. The Russian driver, who has already distinguished himself by his unsportsmanlike driving during the F2 final in Sakhir, worsened his case by posting a simply scandalous video on the social network Instagram.
We see the one who must be Mick Schumacher’s teammate at Haas in 2021 abusing a young woman by plunging his hand into her cleavage, the latter obviously not being at all consenting. Obviously, Mazepin quickly deleted this story but the damage is done since the video was just as quickly captured and broadcast all over the web. We leave you alone to judge in front of these images:
Haas F1 Team reacted quickly to this turn of events. The American team posted two tweets to indicate that they did not condone the behavior of their new recruit: “Haas does not endorse the behavior of Nikita Mazepin in a video posted recently on social media “, informed Gunther Steiner’s team, whose reaction is expected of all. “The mere fact that a video has been posted online is downright hateful. The incident is being handled internally and we will not offer further comment. “
This scandal couldn’t be worse for Haas, who needs a makeover after last year’s Rich Energy sketch. To wash away the affront, will the team that has driven Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen in recent years break the contract binding him to the turbulent rookie? Mazepin’s father was to bring significant cash for this team which needs to free itself from the financial dependence of its wealthy owner Gene Haas. Still, keeping a driver who totally despises by his behavior the #WeRaceAsOne campaign launched by F1 and the recent pro-women operations of the FIA would do the job. We remember that Tomas Scheckter was fired from Jaguar in 2001 for having been caught on the public road accosting a prostitute.
And the main interested in all this? He contented himself with making his mea-culpa on social networks, without making the slightest comment for the victim: “JI would like to apologize for my recent behavior, both because these gestures are inappropriate but also because a video has been posted online. I’m sorry for the outrage, justified, I have caused, and I apologize for embarrassing the Haas team. I have to set myself very high standards as an F1 driver. I have disappointed a lot of people, starting with myself. I promise to learn the necessary lessons from it. “
Now let’s wait and see how Haas and the FIA deal with the Mazepin case. But let’s bet that it now smells bad for the rest of the Russian’s career, the father’s money not being able to stifle such a case …
