Mazepin may not race in F1 under Russian flag

Nikita Mazepin may not be able to race under the Russian flag in Formula 1 this year. Russian F1 pundit Alexey Popov thinks Haas rookie Mazepin may be similarly affected. “In many sports now they compete under the flag of the national federation – in this case, it would be the Russian Automobile Federation. But the flag is everywhere – over the circuit, over the garages, on the overalls. “It wouldn’t be very pleasant to be deprived of that,” Popov added. There has also been speculation that Formula 1 will have to rename the Russian GP, instead calling it the Krasnodar or Sochi GP.
