Mazepin: “We knew in advance that the first season would become the basis for 2022”


The Russian pilot of “Haas” Nikita Mazepin told what he expects in the new season.

“In general, there is a feeling that the team and I spent more than one season together. – A year in Formula 1 turned out to be longer than any other year in my life.

We knew in advance that the first season would be the basis for 2022. And the main difference now is that the riders will be able to have more influence on the capabilities of the car, on the position from which we will start and, most importantly, on improvements during the season. When working on the VF-22, we have already discussed with the team those issues where the opinion of the pilot is important.

After the change of regulations, I look forward to tight battles, which I had in Formula 2?, where aerodynamics play a very small role. I hope the new rules will be a big step in this direction, ”Motorsport quotes Mazepin.

The first races of the new season will be held on March 20 in Bahrain. Even before the start of the Formula 1 season, test races will take place, which will be held February 23-25 ​​in Barcelona.
