Nikita Mazepin’s F1 future in doubt as FIA call emergency talks to discuss banning Russian driver amid Ukraine invasion

FORMULA ONE Russian Haas driver Nikita Mazepin is set to be top of the agenda as the FIA hold emergency talks over the invasion of Ukraine. The governing body will stage an emergency meeting on Tuesday to discuss the crisis. And Mazepin – son of billionaire oligarch Dmitry who has ties with Russian president Vladimir Putin – could find himself banned from the sport. The president of the Automobile Federation of Ukraine, Leonid Kostyuchenk, has demanded that Russian and Belarusian drivers are banned from competing outside of their own countries. And Mazepin’s team Haas also removed the branding of its title partner Uralkali on the last day of Barcelona’s pre-season test.
