Heavily-criticised Mazepin destroyed at Imola

The under-fire Nikita Mazepin “destroyed” a rival’s qualifying lap at Imola – and then his teammate Mick Schumacher “destroyed” the Russian with pace. Those are the views of Alfa Romeo’s Antonio Giovinazzi and former F1 driver Ralf Schumacher – who is the uncle of 22-year-old Mazepin’s similarly aged Haas teammate. However, while Mazepin said his pace was actually similar to Schumacher’s over the lap segments at Imola, the timesheets show him a full five tenths behind the sister Haas. “You can already speak not of Mick having beaten him, but having destroyed him,” Ralf Schumacher told Sky Deutschland. Mick Schumacher, though, is not pouring fuel on the Mazepin pile-on.
