Nikita Mazepin suffers nightmare F1 debut as he crashes after just THREE CORNERS of first lap following qualifying hell

NIKITA MAZEPIN suffered a nightmare debut in his Formula One debut after crashing after just THREE CORNERS of Sunday’s Grand Prix in Bahrain. And after qualifying dead-last in Bahrain – eight-tenths of second off the pace of Schumacher – Mazepin was out just three turns into the first lap. In worrying scenes, Mazepin hit the wall – with the safety car brought out after the yellow flag was waved. The Haas team breathed a collective sigh of relief after Mazepin radioed in to say: “I’m OK.”. Former F1 star Jolyon Palmer admitted it was the worst-possible start to Mazepin’s career. Shortly after Mazepin’s crash, team-mate Schumacher spun off the track and into the gravel. Mazepin will next have the chance to hit the track in Imola next month.
