Haas F1 Ends Partnership With Uralkali And Cuts Nikita Mazepin From Team
March 7, 2022
Haas F1 Team has decided to end their title partnership with major Russian brand Uralkali and terminate the contract of Russian driver Nikita Mazepin.
The company is part-owned by Mazepin’s father, Dmitry Mazepin, and due to the ongoing war in Ukraine, Haas felt there was no choice but to end their association with the Russian group.
This is the latest of the sporting sanctions coming against Russian businesses, after many major deals such as Gazprom’s with UEFA and Aeroflot with Manchester United.
