Russia’s Nikita Mazepin MUST sign an agreement banning him from supporting his country’s invasion of Ukraine to compete in F1 this season – as question marks remain over Haas driver’s future

Formula One’s rulers will demand Russian driver Nikita Mazepin signs a document forbidding him from voicing support for his country’s invasion of Ukraine if he is to compete in the sport this season. Mazepin is the grid’s sole Russian driver and it is unclear if he will be kept on by American-owned Haas for the new campaign. His father, oligarch Dmitry Mazepin, is a part-owner of Haas’ title sponsor, Uralkali, and an associate of Russian president Vladimir Putin. The FIA has allowed Russian drivers to continue racing, albeit under a neutral flag. Formula One terminated its contract with the Russian Grand Prix on Thursday, while Motorsport UK announced Russian-licenced drivers will be banned from competing in the United Kingdom.
