Formula One Career[]

Nikita Mazepin will drive for the Haas F1 Team in his first season of Formula One in 2021, partnering Mick Schumacher. Mazepin was confirmed as a Haas driver on December 2 2020[1], almost two months after British publication cited a source as saying that Mazepin will "definitely" join the team in 2021[2].

Shortly after the news was announced, Mazepin caused controversy after he posted a video of him groping an Instagram model onto social media, though she later defended his actions and said they are friends.[3] [4]

A petition calling for Haas to fire Mazepin was quickly launched and secured tens of thousands of signatures. [5] Steiner said he is confident he can stay "objective" in their investigation of Mazepin's misconduct[6].

The #WeSayNoToMazepin campaign was unsuccessful as Haas reaffirmed their statement on December 23 2020 [7] just days after the Instagram model groped by Mazepin indirectly referenced the incident on social media. [8]
