The figure of the payment pilot It is always controversial in the world of competition. In some cases a sponsor or personal investment comes before talent, although it doesn’t necessarily always have to be that way either. The last controversy In this regard, the Russian starred Nikita Mazepin, who joins the team Haas with the briefcase that it brings the chemical group owned by his father, that some sources estimate in 30 million dollars (about 25 million euros).
Your arrival at the Formula 1 was compromised with the scandal of her already infamous video on social media, the American team even opened an internal process to clarify what happened and threatened to take action … that finally they came to nothing. And is that Mazepin’s money is vital to your project, as the team leader now openly acknowledges, Guenther Steiner: “When you have a business and you make an investment, you need it to be sustainable and that (the arrival of the Russian) it’s part of it ”.
In statements to ‘GP Fans’, Steiner argue their position in this regard: “We have created a name for Haas in F1, now we are known and we need business partners. If to this is added that Dmitry Mapezin has a company and is incorporated as a sponsor, why not?”.
The Haas boss is very clear that the financial support a driver enjoys is independent of their ability at the wheel. “If someone is good and has financial support, sure that has more chances that another is also good but does not have that contribution. Why choose the one who does not have support? ”, Steiner wonders, justifying his choice, supported in his opinion by the potential as a pilot that Mazepin must demonstrate.
In this context, the head of the team has also come out in defense of his new pilot for the case of the inappropriate video, asking fans and journalists to end what he considers a “chase”. “Know what what he did was not right, is a young man who needs to grow, we are going to help him have a chance to learn. So you can focus on your career and we’ll make sure not be repeated ”, Steiner has declared about it in the British press.
