They've pulled the Mazepin. Mazepout. You can hear a Mazepin dropped.

I do feel a little sorry for Mazepin mind, he must be gutted this close to the season opener. 
 

Brought absolutely nothing to F1 though and I don’t think he’ll be missed by anyone.

Terrible driver so won’t be lost in any way, but I feel for him as a person.

Anyway, I really hope Haas try and be ambitious and go for a relatively experienced driver. Schumacher could really benefit from that.

I don't. He's a sexual harasser. All available evidence points to him being even more of a piece of **** as a person than he is a driver.

I don't feel sorry for him in the slightest, never mind the sexual harassment stuff, he was also apparently a massive d*ck to Haas engineers throughout last season. Happy to see the back of him.

I never heard about that, is that so? Not that I am sorry he was catapulted out, just curious.

 

 

Edit: never mind, I checked on the web, and yeah, the guy seems to have the word "humble" missing from his vocabulary.

No, so sad for Mazepin. So close to the season start. I feel bad for all the russian people who are being banned left to right. People who don't want this war in the first place. Who faces terrible sanctions.
But I guess it's neccesary to do to stop Putin. At least long term.

No loss given he's a terrible driver anyway.

 

Given how close his father is to Putin, and how it's father's money that is paying for the seat, Haas couldn't not get rid of him.

No loss at all, terrible driver terrible attitude and terrible nation. Good riddance. 

 

Love how the world is so united with the anti-russia/belarus due to their atrocities commited. 

 

I don't think they can hire Hulkenberg, they need another pay driver.

Exactly this. Good riddance. But... it's a 'conflict' now. That's kinda edgy of Haas.

I don’t think Hulkenburg would want to trawl around the back in a Haas anyway tbh. It’ll all come down to money but Giovinazzi would be a stable pair of hands this close to the season start.

Glad he's gone, he's an absolutely terrible human being and an awful driver.

 

If it was Kvyat or Petrov that had been dropped due to the war, I'd feel sorry for them as they always appeared to be nice people, Nikita on the other hand can go and enjoy failing in whatever Russian Motorsport leagues exist.

Well according to some people on this forum russian athletes are innocent.

Perhaps they now they understand why banning russian athletes is a good move…

No great loss from a driver perspective, he was only there due to the sponsorship and with that gone and his family's links to Putin, it was a no brainer really.

They did put "the invasion of Ukraine" as well, which is a little better, but forgot to mention the name of the country Ukraine is fighting, which is pretty crap.

If ever there was a russian athlete that needed to get hit with sactions, it's Mazepin. His dad's money is the dirtiest money out there. The mazepin family is at the center of russian power

Car looks way better without the russian flag frontwing and now Haas can hopefully get a more promising driver (although still a ”paydriver”) No one will miss or remember him next month.

I certainly do understand, but your reasoning has nothing to do with that. Not to mention that I still think most russian athletes should be considered innocent, which does not mean they should not be isolated from every possible federation, committee, and competition internationally. I do understand though it is necessary.

So who's the next driver with biggest pockets and without a seat? Roy Nissany?

 

If it were for ideal replacement I would say Gio. Quick qualifier, already racing in another category and raced in F1 till last year so will be in proper shape to race these cars. Decent benchmark for Ferrari to test their two test drivers. Maybe Ferrari can buy a seat for him in Haas.

It does. You are free to compose a listcof which russian athletes do not have any deep connections into russian politics. Until then the only option is to ban none or all…

Really ? - Its the Haas team that have binned him. Meanwhile the FIA have only said Russian drivers cant drive under the Russian flag - the usual weak sauce response - hardly up there with the action some other sports have taken. Not so much the "right side of history"  but the barest minimum they can get away with.

Ordinarily banning an individual based on their nationality doesn’t sit right with me at all - but clearly there’s far more to it than that here. I’ve got no sympathy for him. Rubbish driver, only there because of his Dad’s cash and I don’t like him. Good riddance, I was hoping this would happen in honesty. I just hope Haas can survive without that money coming in.

Hopefully they’ll now sign an interesting replacement, ie not Pietro Fittipaldi, sorry. Would Alpine ever loan them Piastri?

The most disappointing part of this split is that Haas will in all likelihood replace Mazepin with Fittipaldi who has a worse racing record. Somehow from the list of potential candidates that might have some people excited at the prospect of joining the F1 grid, it is the least inspired choice of the lot that they’ll end up putting in the car.

Seriously?  The capacity of this forum to pick holes in absolutely everything that anyone ever says is astonishing.  Are you really suggesting that there are now people reading that who are wondering who has invaded Ukraine??

Piastri is the obvious candidate. Make it happen please!

Yeah... let's deny there is a full blown war going on. I don't give a **** about his sacking, that is totally what it's *not* about.

Some would say that if he puts Fittipaldi in the car he does have a sense of humour ... or maybe they've just become used to running at the back so Fittipaldi would be the continuity candidate ...  :lol:

 

Haas could do worse than Nissany if they are looking for a pay driver replacement.
