Nikita mazepin returned to the center of controversy this weekend. After some fairly uneventful races for the Russian driver, an incident with his teammate in Azerbaijan put it back in the spotlight of the media. Again several critics appeared, including Ralf Schumacher, who ensured that the team driver Haas he must be sanctioned as soon as possible: “He deserves urgent punishment,” said the German.
On the last lap of the race, Nikita Mazepin was ahead of Mick Schumacher. However, on the main straight of the Baku street circuit, Mazepin defended himself from the attacks of his partner, who was with greater speed and better rhythm than him. The Russian’s defense attempts were in vain, since the German ended up overtaking him, although the maneuver was not without controversy.
When Mick passed his partner on the right of the circuit, it closed abruptly. Fortunately, Mick was able to dodge Mazepin, but the anger of the German pilot could be seen. On the radio, the son of Michael Schumacher he exploded and shot, “What the hell was that? Seriously, do you want to kill us? These words did not go unnoticed, although Mazepin did not respond to them.
Ralf Schumacher’s critique
Mick’s uncle and former Formula 1 driver Ralf Schumacher fired thick rounds at the Russian driver. According to his words, Mazepin could have put his nephew at risk with that maneuver. “That Mazepin jolt when Mick overtakes is not possible. We are talking about speeds above 300 km / h, something like that is life threatening. By bike, you can make yourself jump through the air. Imagine if we talk about 750 kilograms ”, he shot.
On the other hand, Ralf asked for a severe punishment against Mazepin, since something more serious could happen on the track. “Mazepin deserves urgent punishment. Outside of the car he is a great guy and is extremely courteous. In the race he starts circling, he often gets in the way, so he urgently needs to catch up. I don’t know if Race Direction should review this ”, asked Schumacher, as confirmed by the Spanish newspaper Marca.
