The Haas F1 Team, Formula One’s only American outfit, has confirmed that Nikita Mazepin will not lose his race seats for the 2021 F1 season despite the video controversy.

Just a week after the American team announced that Mazepin would make his F1 debut with the team in 2021, the Russian driver posted a video on his Instagram account. A short clip shows Mazepin groping for a woman in the car.

After the incident, Haas took the matter seriously, but said he would deal with it personally. The Kannapolis-based team has announced that it will retain a 21-year-old Moscow-born driver. This driver will switch from the FIA ​​F2 Championship to the pinnacle of motorsport next year.

“”Haas F1 Team I want to reaffirm that Nikita Mazepin and Mick Schumacher will form the driver lineup for the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, “the team’s statement read.

“According to a previous statement by the team on Nikita Mazepin’s actions (9 December), this issue is currently being addressed internally and there is no further comment.”
