Nikita Mazepin has become synonymous with cars spinning on the grid after experiencing a fair share of them during his rookie campaign.
This prompted Haas team boss Guenther Steiner to hand him a cheeky gift considering the Russian is now called ‘Mazespin’ by his team.
Nikita was called to the Haas office
Steiner called Mazepin to his office in the Haas motorhome and showed him a box.
“Here’s a little present for you. So you can keep on ‘Mazespinning’…” Steiner smiled and said to Mazepin as he handed him his gift.
Initially, Nikita had some difficulty in understanding what he had been given.
Steiner explained that if he just wants to spin, he can spin the spinner rather than his F1 car.
“Now you can spin,” said Steiner. “There is two of them now. It’s the Mazespin game. You spin this one: it is better than spinning the car!”
All in good humor
Mazepin accepted the present and even posed for photographs with the ‘Mazespin’.
The Russian rookie has had a difficult season so far in Formula 1 and has been involved in a number of accidents so far.
During the season opener in Bahrain, he spun during the practice and qualifying. Also, during the race, he crashed into the barriers on the first lap.
In Imola, he had more spins during practice and the race.
Mazepin’s confidence dropped
Steiner also revealed that the increasing incidents began to impact the Russian’s confidence.
“I would say his confidence got a little bit knocked when he came in,” Steiner mentioned earlier in the year.
“You know, Bahrain was very difficult circumstances, with the track and with the wind, and he had a few spins and I think that made him a little bit insecure.
“But I think he’s now coming to grips with that. But for sure it was a little bit more of a shock feeling for him, but he is getting his act together in the moment, you know. I can see that he’s making progress,” he concluded.
We can only wait for the young driver to get used to his car as the season progresses on.
