Mazepin has learned according to Steiner: We will keep on educating him

Since his appointment as Haas F1 driver for 2021, Nikita Mazepin has been the subject of much controversy. The Russian has been in the news a lot due to controversial actions both on and off the track. According to team principal Guenther Steiner, Mazepin has learned his lesson and the media should not be nagging him.

Concentrate on racing

Along with Mick Schumacher, Mazepin will form the new duo at Haas in 2021. Mazepin brings a lot of money with him, which the Haas team could use. The Russian is also regularly in the news because of inappropriate actions.

Team boss Steiner has taken the young driver to task on several occasions and says Mazepin has learned from his mistakes. "We need to work on it to give him the best opportunity to learn from this, concentrate on his racing and ensure he doesn't do it anymore," Steiner said according to The Sun.

No kicking from Steiner

"He knows that. He realises that what was done wasn't right. I'm not the type of guy who kicks in the face of someone who's on their knees - that's not right," Steiner continued. 

"This is a young man who needs to grow up and for sure we have dealt with this and we will continue to deal with this. We are not saying that this was OK and letting him get away with it. We are educating him and will keep on educating him for his future," Steiner concluded.
