Nikita Mazepin goes to the path of justice to prove that he is right. The former Haas driver believes the team must still pay his overdue salary, and the US team refuses to do so to this day.
At the start of the season, Haas bid farewell to the Russian driver and main sponsor Uralkali. All this happened shortly after Russia invaded neighboring Ukraine. The team’s decision was not appreciated by Mazepin. However, the close ties between Dmitriy Mazepin (Uralkali) and the Russian government were enough reason for the American team to pull the plug on the partnership. The contract was unilaterally terminated, but the racing stable decided to keep the sponsorship money.
