It is an American car, but with a Russian appearance. Strange? Yes, but there is nothing that money cannot achieve. For anyone who wonders why Mazepin, after his unfortunate video published in December touching a girl’s breast, he was not fired from the team Haas before debuting in the Formula 1, has its answer in the new and surprising decoration of the new Haas VF-21, that this course will compete with the Russian flag, place of origin of the new main partner of the set, the Russian fertilizer brand Uralkali, which comes from the hand of the father of Nikita Mazepin, that this course debuts with this set.
In this way, this signature and the father of Mazepin they finally achieve what they have been pursuing for so many years. First, the fertilizer brand and the father of the Russian pilot They tried to buy the Force India team (current Aston Martin), but the management of the group preferred to bet on the money of Lawrence Stroll. Later, they went for Williams, also no luck. And finally, managed to land in Formula 1 with a powerful sponsorship that must fill Haas’s coffers with liquid in a time of crisis. With this it is all said. And that’s how the Formula 1. Talent counts less if you bring a good wad of bills. And before that, there is no unworthy behavior that is worth, unfortunately.
Haas found it convenient that a simple slap on the wrist of the 22-year-old pilot was enough and Nikita apologized through a statement and in a recent interview. Now, everyone will look at his behavior with a magnifying glass and this will generate a double special attention in Haas, which on the other side of the box will have a large part of the eyes of the grid on its new star, Mick schumacher, for reasons very different from those of his partner.
The son of the seven-time champion makes his Formula 1 debut with Haas. That was the choice made by Ferrari, the team to which the German belongs, instead of Alfa Romeo, possibly due to the strong sponsorship that was going to enter the Gene Haas team, which this year wants to take an important step forward in its performance , especially thanks to the power upgrade that Ferrari has announced in its engine.
The American team was in the final part of the grid last season powered by a weak Ferrari power unit, something that plunged Haas to a prizeless fight against Alfa Romeo (also a Ferrari customer) and Williams. The American team thus went from being able to battle at the beginning of previous seasons to lead the middle zone, to being very far from their objectives. Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen, with too many missed opportunities and many mistakes, take over from the youth and aggressiveness of Mazepin, and in turn, to the new signing, Mick Schumacher, who will be one of the great attractions of this season. With the two of them, Haas wants to progress on the grid while the two ‘rookies’ learn and take steps to the front in the top world class.
