'Negotiations with Perez halted, Mazepin wants to buy Haas for his son'

The Silly Season for 2021 has already brought many big surprises, but it is far from over. Sergio Perez is looking for a seat and seems to be on his way to Haas, but Nikita Mazepin and his father are said to be throwing a spanner in the works.

Perez is due to leave Racing Point at the end of 2020, which chose Sebastian Vettel in 2021 under the name of Aston Martin. Perez is in talks with other teams and Haas seems to be a serious option, but there is now a kink in the cable. After Lawrence Stroll and Michael Latifi, we may be able to welcome a third billionaire into Formula 1 in 2021.

Mazepin to Formula 1?

Nikita Mazepin is sixth in the Formula 2 championship and as seventh-place is enough for him to get his super license, father Dmitry Mazepin is working hard in the background to get his son into Formula 1. Earlier Mazepin tried to buy Force India and now Haas seems to be the target.

According to Motorsport.it is now even so far that there have been talks between Mazepin and Haas and that there is a bid on the table which few teams would refuse. According to the Italian medium, the contract negotiations with Perez have therefore been halted and Perez even seems to be an option for Williams, which could come under the current contracts with the new management.
