Mazepin may be eyeing second Alfa Romeo seat

Nikita Mazepin has hinted that he and his powerful financial backing may be headed for a different Formula 1 team. The Russian rookie, whose father Dmitry’s company Uralkali is the title sponsor at Haas, is now locked in an open conflict with his teammate Mick Schumacher. Popov thinks the problem for Mazepin and Schumacher is not their relationship, but the lagging pace of their 2021 car. Ralf Schumacher, who is Mick’s uncle, senses that Haas boss Gunther Steiner may only be defending Mazepin because of the money he brings to the team. If you look at his performance in relation to Mick, that can’t be the reason,” Schumacher said.
