There has been a strong boycott campaign against Nikita Mazepin. The Russian, the protagonist of several scandals in the Formula 1, is one of the targets of all the criticism of pilots, journalists, leaders and fans of the category. The Haas pilot was on the verge of leaving the American structure, due to the scandals that involved him.
Mazepin will make his Formula 1 debut, despite everything he did during the preseason. The team Haas he needs his millions and did not want to miss the opportunity. Nevertheless, Franz tost does not see Mazepin with a great future in the category, In addition, it differentiated him from the other young drivers who will debut in the category (Yuki tsunoda Y Mick schumacher).
Tost spoke of the new breed of pilots who will seek to take over from the older figures, such as Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel or Kimi Raikkonen. The head of AlphaTauri assured that there is a great level of piloting in the young people who are emerging in the Formula 2. Among these names, he did not name Mazepin.
“Now we have several young drivers who are very good. Besides Mick Schumacher and Yuki Tsunoda, there is also Robert Shwartzman. I have a high regard for these three drivers and for this generation that will be the future of Formula 1, “the Italian squad leader assured the ‘Auto Motor und Sport’. On the other hand, a few hours ago Gene Haas, owner of Haas, assured that Guenther Steiner he told Mazepin that he was an ‘idiot’.
Although he did not want to comment on Mazepin, Tost was blunt when asked for a projection of what he expects from the Russian. “I can be very rude and say that you cannot turn a cow into a tiger. It always depends on how smart you are when you get in the car. Throughout my career I have seen that only intelligent pilots who know what they are doing and behave correctly will succeed, “he said.
