Mick Schumacher and Nikita Masepin are the new pilots at Haas in 2021. Masepin’s father is the head of the main financier – are there any problems with that? Now team boss Günther Steiner has commented.
Günther Steiner, as team boss of the Formula 1 racing team Haas, also Mick Schumacher’s superior, has promised his drivers equal opportunities. “Both drivers are equal in the team,” said Steiner on RTL / ntv.
Schumacher’s stable colleague Nikita Masepin is the son of the Russian entrepreneur Dimitri Masepin, whose chemical company Uralkali has taken over the name sponsorship of Haas and is thus the most important donor of the small US racing team.
“Mr. Masepin also said: ‘My son has no advantages'”, Steiner reported on the show “Frühstart”: “Uralkali is the main sponsor, but has no rights to have an advantage. That does not exist. That is not athletic, we don’t do that either. That’s what I stand for, “said the Italian and assured that he always played” with open cards “.
The new season starts on March 28th in Bahrain.
