Krack was a race engineer with the BMW Sauber team in Formula 1 in the 2000s

New Aston Martin team principal Mike Krack has said he believes the team is on track with its plan to be a Formula 1 title contender by 2025.

The 49-year-old former BMW Motorsport boss was appointed by ambitious Aston Martin owner, Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll.

“We have everything we need, but we have to make the right decisions,” Krack said.

“It doesn’t come on its own. It’s hard work over days, weeks and months.”

He has extensive experience in motorsport engineering and management, having been a race engineer with the BMW Sauber team in Formula 1 in the 2000s, before taking up management positions in racing departments. from Porsche and BMW.

Aston Martin is the second team in recent years to set itself a five-year plan towards competitiveness – but Krack believes it can succeed where Alpine, formerly Renault, has failed to make progress.

“I agree that five-year plans don’t always work,” he said. “There can only be one winner. And very often you have a disruption – like this year with a new regulation – where you have to readjust.

“But on the other hand, which is a bit different from the team you mentioned [Alpine] are we not an OEM [major car manufacturer].

“We are a lean management structure and we can decide very quickly and we are very flexible. We have great possibilities and we have a fast decision path. This is an asset that not everyone has.

“Obviously, you can’t plan for success, but you have to put everything in place to achieve it.”

The team that Krack now leads under Stroll and group chief executive Martin Whitmarsh became Aston Martin last year. It was renamed by Stroll after taking over the historic road car business in 2020 following its acquisition from the former Force India F1 team in 2018 after it collapsed into administration.

Through the team’s various appearances since its founding as Jordan in 1991, they have earned a reputation for punching above their weight.

Why is Krack at Aston Martin?

Krack said part of the allure of accepting the job, other than the chance to lead a team in motorsport’s top tier, was because he saw similarities to his time at Sauber – and had also learned lessons about what to avoid.

Sauber, a privateer team with a reputation for being eternal midfielders, was taken over by BMW in 2006, and the company has set itself the goal of competing for the title in 2009.

It sacrificed the chance to push for the championship in 2008, when Robert Kubica was leading the points table after winning the Canadian Grand Prix in June, by halting development of that car so it could focus on changes to rules to come the following year.

BMW’s 2009 car was uncompetitive and the company pulled out of F1 at the end of the season.

“I kinda resent the situation I had with Sauber,” Krack said. “We were in a similar situation where at times we were clearly above our abilities and then we had a great partner come along and all of a sudden you had opportunities that you never had before. . We have something similar here.”

He added: “BMW also had a five-year plan and it was run in a very corporate way, which we have to avoid at all costs here.”

The foundations of ambition

Aston Martin is building a new factory at its Silverstone base, which is expected to be completed in early 2023.

Krack echoed Stroll saying it would be “state of the art”, adding, “We’ll then have all the possibilities and facilities you need to be successful.”

The Luxembourger’s appointment follows in the vein of McLaren’s decision to bring in former Porsche Motorsport boss Andreas Seidl as team principal in 2019.

Seidl has since made a significant impact and is widely respected within F1, while McLaren have made remarkable progress under his leadership.

Krack, a former colleague of the German, described his management style as “bringing people together to give them the necessary confidence, and I can succeed in forming teams that work well together”.

And he said he doesn’t have “a big list of names I want to bring in” from his old companies.

“It’s more important to see what structure we have here,” Krack said. “There are really good people here. It’s more like we have to fill a role and we know someone in my network, I’ll make a suggestion and push to get the right people. But it’s not at all like I would I like to trade people for people I know, not at all.”

Aston Martin’s current drivers are Sebastian Vettel, four-time champion, and Lance Stroll, son of Lawrence.

Vettel’s contract expires at the end of this season and Krack, who worked with Vettel at BMW Sauber in 2006, said: “It’s clear that a guy like Sebastian doesn’t want to be 15th or 12th or eighth. is our task to deliver a successful structure.

“Sebastian is a smart guy. He will not just focus on this year’s car, but [on whether] he sees the potential. And if we can offer him that, we have a chance of keeping him longer.

“I didn’t tell him about it. It’s our job to deliver the right package, and then Sébastien [want to] stay and other drivers would like to join us.”

Aston Martin has announced that team principal Otmar Szafnauer has left the Formula 1 squad with immediate effect …

It is not yet clear where Szafnauer, who has been with the Silverstone-based squad for 12 years under their former names of Force India and Racing Point, will go to.

Reports in November linked him to a shock move against midfielder rival Alpine – but he said at the time he had “no plans to leave” his current squad.

But on Wednesday, Aston Martin revealed that Szafnauer is gone and that his role “will be managed within the management team until a replacement is appointed”.

They added: “We would like to thank him for the service rendered to the team over the past 12 years and wish him good luck for the future as he will undoubtedly face new challenges.

“Fortunately, we are led and managed by a strong group of individuals, and we are comfortable taking some time to explore the options before announcing a new team structure.

“The team is currently focused on preparing the most competitive car possible for the start of the 2022 season.”

Last September, Aston Martin revealed that former McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh is returning to Formula 1 as group general manager of Aston Martin Performance Technologies.

Szafnauer said at the time that Whitmarsh’s arrival should allow him to focus his efforts fully on the racing team.

As Racing Point turned into Aston Martin, the battle between Lance Stroll and new teammate Sebastian Vettel was one of the most intriguing clashes of the season.

Both were beaten by their respective teammates in 2020, especially in qualifying. How would Vettel react to being abandoned by Ferrari and how would Stroll compare to a quadruple world champion, easily his most competitive teammate to date?

Stroll had the best start to the year, qualifying and passing his teammate in Sakhir and Imola as Vettel played himself. As Stroll put Aston Martin’s first points on the board, it wasn’t until Monaco that Vettel scored for the first time with fifth place, while Stroll took eighth place.

In Azerbaijan, the two Aston Martin riders made good use of a longer first stint as Vettel temporarily inherited the lead before his first save. Stroll stayed even longer until he suffered a horrific tire failure along the pit straight and luckily was able to come out unscathed. Vettel did a brilliant job fending off former Ferrari teammate Charles Leclerc to take second place and take a big advantage over Stroll, whom he held for the remainder of the season.

The gap could have been even greater. In Hungary, Stroll made a mess braking for the first corner in slippery conditions and crashed into Leclerc’s Ferrari, taking it with his own car in the process. Vettel finished third after the scrum and spent most of the race in second, chasing Esteban Ocon for victory to secure his second podium of the year – until he was disqualified for not producing sufficient fuel sample after the race. The loss could have been even more infuriating, as a slightly slow pit stop cost Vettel the chance to take the lead.

The tangled pair at the start in Monza

Vettel enjoyed a stroll qualifying streak over four consecutive laps on either side of the summer break, but Stroll put in the best racing performance when the race resumed, finishing ahead of his teammate at Zandvoort, Monza (where he dealt very firmly with Vettel in the first round), Sochi (where they faced each other again) and Istanbul.

Then Vettel turned the tide of the qualifying battle in the final third of the year, beating Stroll five straight Saturdays to end the season 13-8 on his youngest teammate. Stroll had his best result of the season with a sixth place finish in Qatar, which was the last time an Aston Martin driver finished in points.

Their first season together had returned to seventh place in the Constructors’ Championship, with Vettel winning the qualifying and points battles, the latter despite being disqualified in Hungary. But Stroll underscored his deserved reputation for bringing the car home regularly, ending the year with more ranked finishes ahead of his world champion teammate.

On the most important points, however, Stroll once again made a lesser contribution than the guy from the other garage, as happened twice with Sergio Perez and in his debut season alongside Felipe Massa. in 2017. This could be seen as an inevitable consequence of being paired with some very experienced teammates, but as Stroll finished the season with his 100th start, that explanation has surely reached its expiration date.

Both drivers have dominated the standings in recent years, finishing in the top two every year since 2016. But this is the first time Verstappen has won.

In what has become a long-standing tradition created by Autosport, each of the F1 team leaders was invited to choose their top 10 drivers of the year. Individual results are kept secret – so the team managers can answer honestly – and the tally is calculated using the F1 point structure which ranges from 25 points for the first to 1 point for the 10th.

For the first time since entering F1 in 2015, world champion Verstappen won with 188 points against 174 for Hamilton.

The poll result comes at the end of a campaign where his team boss Christian Horner said the Dutchman has been a tremendous inspiration to everyone at Red Bull.

Looking back on the season and Verstappen’s progress, Horner said: “I think we just gave him a better car and he used it a lot.

“He finished all the races, first or second, except one, where he missed half of his car in Budapest. And the statistics speak for themselves: the number of laps he has led, pole positions, race victories. He was exceptional and so few mistakes under tremendous pressure.

“I think what you forget is the amount of pressure that has built up during the championship. And the way that as a young man he handled and handled it was inspiring. “

Lando Norris rose to third place overall after an extremely impressive season with McLaren, which saw him claim his first pole position at the Russian Grand Prix. He was the top 10 climber, with Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz both gaining four spots from their 2020 positions, while returning Fernando Alonso was fifth.

Despite their respective victories in the GPs of Azerbaijan and Italy, Sergio Perez (fifth in 2020) and Daniel Ricciardo (fourth) came out of the top 10.

The nine team managers who took part were Toto Wolff (Mercedes), Christian Horner (Red Bull), Andreas Seidl (McLaren), Laurent Rossi (Alpine), Otmar Szafnauer (Aston Martin), Fred Vasseur (Alfa Romeo), Franz Tost (AlphaTauri), Jost Capito (Williams) and Gunther Steiner (Haas). The only team that did not participate was Ferrari.

(Reuters) – Team-by-team analysis of Sunday’s Qatar Grand Prix, the 20th race of the Formula 1 World Championship in 22 rounds (ranked in current order):

MERCEDES (Lewis Hamilton 1, Retired Valtteri Bottas)

Hamilton led from pole position for his 102nd career victory and seventh of the season. He is now eight points behind Verstappen. It was the 30th circuit he had won on. Bottas started sixth, after a three-place penalty for failing to respect the warning flags in qualifying, and dropped to 11th at the start. He suffered a flat front left on lap 33, limped back to the pits but retired on lap 48 due to damage. Mercedes is only five points ahead of Red Bull.

RED BULL (Max Verstappen 2, Sergio Perez 4)

Verstappen started seventh, after a five-grid penalty for not slowing down for the yellow flags in qualifying, but was fourth at the end of the first lap and second after five laps. He took a bonus point for the best lap. Perez started 11th and could have been on the podium without a passage to two stops and then to the virtual safety car. Team boss Horner received an official warning for commenting on a marshal and apologized.

FERRARI (Carlos Sainz 7, Charles Leclerc 8)

Sainz started fifth after penalties for Bottas and Verstappen and made a one-stop strategy. The two Ferrari drivers had to do a lot of tire management. Leclerc started with a new chassis in 13th place. Ferrari overtook the drivers in the pit. They now lead McLaren by 39.5 points.

MCLAREN (Lando Norris 9, Daniel Ricciardo 12)

Norris started fourth and had a good pace until a flat tire ruined his race and pulled him back from fourth with seven laps to go. The hard tire of the second stint had made fewer laps than the soft tire of the first. Ricciardo started 14th, had a good first stint and then had to save fuel.

ALPIN (Fernando Alonso 3, Esteban Ocon 5)

Alonso got his first podium since 2014, when he was at Ferrari. He started third after penalties at Verstappen and Bottas and was second after the first corner but ultimately couldn’t hold back Verstappen. He returned to third place after Perez took a dive for the second time. Ocon has moved up four places from his grid position. Alpine, owned by Renault, started the race on points level with AlphaTauri and is now 25 points ahead.

ALPHATAURI (Pierre Gasly 11, Yuki Tsunoda 13)

Gasly started on the front row but didn’t have the speed to compete up front. The team tried an aggressive two-stop strategy, but that didn’t work either. Tsunoda struggled with the soft tire and was also slowed down in the first stint when a tear in the visor caught on the rear wing, forcing an earlier pit stop to remove it.

ASTON MARTIN (Lance Stroll 6, Sebastian Vettel 10)

Stroll started 12th and got off to a good start, passing Sainz at the pit stop. The two were on one stop. Vettel started 10th but fell to 17th after being pushed aside by Bottas but made a strong recovery. It was the team’s first double since France in June.

WILLIAMS (George Russell 17, Nicholas Latifi retired)

Latifi retired on lap 51 due to a puncture, causing the virtual safety car to exit when it pulled over to the edge of the track and the marshals had to exit to retrieve it. Russell started 15th and stopped early on lap 17th, then had to pit again on lap 49 after a puncture in the front left.

ALFA ROMEO (Kimi Raikkonen 14, Antonio Giovinazzi 15)

The two made a two-stop strategy. Giovinazzi gained four places at the start.

HAAS (Mick Schumacher 16, Nikita Mazepin 18)

Schumacher started 19th and made a one-stop strategy, as did Mazepin, who had only completed 15 laps in practice and qualifying due to chassis issues.

(Reuters) – Team-by-team analysis of Sunday’s Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas (teams listed in current championship order):

MERCEDES (Lewis Hamilton 2, Valtteri Bottas 6)

Hamilton started in the front row and took the lead at the start before losing to the pitstop strategy. He is now 12 points behind Max Verstappen with five races to go. Bottas started ninth due to a five-place penalty for exceeding his engine allowance. Mercedes ‘lead in the constructors’ standings was reduced to 23 points.

RED BULL (Max Verstappen 1, Sergio Perez 3)

Verstappen started from pole and celebrated his eighth win of the season, and the 18th of his career, to double his championship lead. He made two saves, both ahead of Hamilton. This victory was his first in the United States. Perez struggled with a drink bottle failure, but earned his fourth top three of the season. The victory was Red Bull’s first in America since 2013.

MCLAREN (Daniel Ricciardo 5, Lando Norris 8)

McLaren lost ground to Ferrari, now just 3.5 points behind. Ricciardo started sixth but passed Sainz de Ferrari on the first lap. Norris started seventh and failed to regain any positions at the start.

FERRARI (Charles Leclerc 4, Carlos Sainz 7)

Leclerc started and finished fourth after a lonely race. Sainz fell two places from his starting position, with the team blaming an error during a pit stop for wasting time.

ALPINE (Esteban Ocon and Fernando Alonso retired)

Both cars retired with mechanical problems. Alonso started 19th after grid penalties, but gained places in the first round. Ocon made contact with Giovinazzi’s Alfa at the start, requiring an immediate front wing change, and retired on lap 40 for precautionary reasons. Alonso retired with damage to the rear wing of his car.

ALPHATAURI (Yuki Tsunoda 9, Pierre Gasly retired)

Gasly was the first to retire from the race, with a suspected suspension problem. Tsunoda scored his first points in six races.

ASTON MARTIN (Sebastian Vettel 10, Lance Stroll 12)

Stroll was hit by Nicholas Latifi of Williams, a compatriot Canadian, at the first corner in the first lap. The contact caused it to fall to the rear and the front fender was damaged. Vettel started 18th due to a powertrain change.

WILLIAMS (George Russell 14, Nicholas Latifi 15)

Latifi collided with Stroll at the start. Russell started 20th and Latifi 13th.

ALFA ROMEO (Antonio Giovinazzi 11, Kimi Raikkonen 13)

Giovinazzi started 12th and Raikkonen 15th.

HAAS (Mick Schumacher 16, Nikita Mazepin 17)

Still no points for the American team this season.

(Reuters) – Team by team analysis of the Turkish Formula 1 Grand Prix on Sunday at the Istanbul Park circuit (ranked in current league order):

MERCEDES (Valtteri Bottas 1, Lewis Hamilton 5)

Bottas won from pole position and set the fastest lap. It was his first victory in over a year and the 10th of his career. Hamilton started 11th on the grid, due to an engine penalty, and was third when he made a late pit stop, dropping two places. Having two points ahead of Verstappen in the championship, he is now six behind. Mercedes is now 36 points ahead of Red Bull, a gain of three points.

RED BULL (Max Verstappen 2, Sergio Perez 3)

Verstappen returned to the top of the championship while Red Bull celebrated their second double podium of the season. The podium was Perez’s first since France in June. Perez faced Hamilton in four corners as they battled for fourth place at a high point in the race.

MCLAREN (Lando Norris 7, Daniel Ricciardo 13)

McLaren’s lead over Ferrari was reduced by 10 points to 7.5. Ricciardo started at the back of the grid due to an engine change penalty and struggled with the tires. The Australian qualified 15th. Norris started seventh and said the race was very long and difficult.

FERRARI (Charles Leclerc 4, Carlos Sainz 8)

Leclerc led once Bottas and Verstappen came to a stop, staying as long as he could before the tires lost their performance and he stopped 47th of 58. Sainz was named Driver of the Day for racing from 19th to eighth place on the grid. He lost time in the pit stop, which cost him a chance to attack Norris.

ALPIN (Esteban Ocon 10, Fernando Alonso 16)

Alonso made contact with Gasly at the first corner, scurrying across the field. The Spaniard fired back but then collided with Schumacher’s Haas and was fined five seconds. He came to look for new intermediaries on the 31st lap. Ocon did not refuel, which allowed a set of intermediate tires to last the entire race, which is allowed by the rules in wet weather.

ALPHATAURI (Pierre Gasly 6, Yuki Tsunoda 14)

Gasly was fined five seconds for the clash with Alonso, for which he apologized, but still finished 10 seconds off the podium. Tsunoda burned down as he faced Hamilton early on, then sped away, giving up the points. The team closed the gap with Alpine to 12 points.

ASTON MARTIN (Lance Stroll 9, Sebastian Vettel 18)

Vettel made a bold move to switch to slicks at his pit stop which backfired and he had to stand again on the next lap to face the intermediates again. Otherwise, he could have scored. Stroll lost time in his pit stop but felt he was getting the most out of the car.

WILLIAMS (George Russell 15, Nicholas Latifi 17)

Russell started 13th and Latifi 15th and both made a stop. Russell lost positions at the start after Alonso’s spin and a battle with Ocon. Latifi spun around on the first lap of his first fully wet race. He also lost time behind the Haas pilots.

ALFA ROMEO (Antonio Giovinazzi 11, Kimi Raikkonen 12)

The duo started 16th and 17th respectively but were 12th and 13th after the first round. They passed Ricciardo one lap from the end.

HAAS (Mick Schumacher 19, Nikita Mazepin 20)

Schumacher started 14th but contact with Alonso sent him back to the back of the pack.

Martin Whitmarsh returns to Formula 1 with Aston Martin in a role much the same as McLaren, namely CEO, but the day-to-day management of Lawrence Stroll’s team will remain in the hands of Otmar Szafnauer.

One of Ron Dennis’ big decisions, in the final days of his fall as the head of the squad he assembled, was to oust Whitmarsh at the end of the 2013 season, after which he left the F1 radar, rarely speaking publicly about the sport or his former team.

He then became CEO of the America’s Cup Challenge at Olympic Ben Ainslie until November 2017, when he assumed an advisory role. A month later, he was commissioned by the FIA ​​to consult on cost reduction in motorsport.

Whitmarsh is also a member of the Hamilton Commission, started by former driver (now seven-time F1 world champion) Lewis Hamilton, and sits on the Formula E advisory board.

Billionaire Stroll announced last month that Whitmarsh had been hired as the CEO he now holds at Aston Martin Performance Technologies.

Talk to Motorsport.com, the team director, Szafnauer, explained how the management of the team will work in the future: “F1 will remain under my direction and my attributions. So I will always be a team leader and CEO. Martin will be the group’s CEO, with F1 reporting through him.

“I guess the only thing that hasn’t been planned is how much time, because he has the whole group,” he devotes to each of these entities.

“I imagine that at the beginning most of his time will be spent developing the area of ​​Aston Martin Performance Technologies, where his most recent expertise is located, and will not focus so much on F1. not been planned is how long it will spend where.

Sazfanuer credits Whitmarsh’s vast experience in F1 – which included the presidency of the (now defunct) Formula One Teams Association (FOTA) – as a big plus in building a powerful team with huge ambitions.

“He was there at McLaren when they started doing this, so he has that experience, and he can take us shortcuts to do it.

“He also has seven years of experience in boat racing, including starting a new business that uses boat racing technology and transfers that technology into, I think, freighters.

“And it’s an applied technology type business, technology transfer. He has good experience in this area and he will help us shorten the development of our performance technology business, ”Szafnauer added.

The American joined Honda when the Japanese automaker returned to the top flight in 2001, remaining with the F1 team until 2008.

Szafnauer joined the Force India team in 2009 where he remained during the transition of the operation from Vijay Mallya to Stroll’s Racing Point, which has since evolved into the Aston Martin dream team under construction. at Silverstone.

Nikita Mazepin revealed over the Russian Grand Prix weekend that her father could buy a Formula 1 team and, if he does, he believes Dmitry has the Midas touch to make the business a success.

Mazepin senior, worth $ 1.4 billion according to Forbes, has been looking for an F1 team for a few years. When Vijay Mallya’s Force India traveled south, he made an offer for the team, but lost to Lawrence Stroll’s consortium, leading the Canadian billionaire to buy the team and transform it. in Racing Point.

At the time, Mazepin was also in contention but lost to Stroll, whereupon the Russian took the case to court citing a “flawed sales process” which came to nothing because since then Racing Point has transformed into Aston Martin and the rest. is history.

However, Dmitry’s name tends to pop up when F1 teams are up for sale.

In an interview with Bild am Sonntag, Mazepin referred to the long-standing rumor: “It would be an interesting option for him. Everything he starts he turns to gold. But I am very loyal to Haas. So if he were to buy one, it would be exciting to see how they duel and hopefully beat him.

As for driving for his father’s team, Mazepin said: “I wouldn’t rule it out. I’m currently on a team that’s tenth out of ten in the constructors’ championship and I stay with them, I want to be successful with Haas.

If Mazepin senior does buy a team, Haas is his best bet. As the owner, Gene Haas seems vaguely interested in the business, despite public relations snippets to the contrary, leaving F1 team issues with Guenther Steiner to resolve and ensure the project survives year after year. , which he hardly does.

If the sale goes ahead, expect Nikita to be a driver as he is funded by petrochemical giant Uralkali, of which his father is the majority shareholder. Without this support, the 22-year-old wouldn’t be in F1 and without his father’s business money.

But Nikita sees it differently: “I have my place because I am a racing driver and the team considers me an asset. The reason for the sponsorship is that the company sees F1 as an opportunity for new business. I am the only Russian driver and of course a Russian company will always want to invest in a team that has a compatriot.

While many may lament his presence on the F1 grid, to the detriment of talented drivers who lack the funding to be in the top flight, Mazepin only had to prove himself against fellow rookie Mick Schumacher, and at this it is fair to say he failed, blaming a heavier car for its woes and misadventures, of which there have been many.

However, there have been flashes of excellence – with a lighter car since the Belgian Grand Prix – as evidenced by our racing statistics guru Kevin Merlo who calculated, after the Russian Grand Prix on Sunday in Sochi: “Mazepin handled the start very well. He passed Gasly and held him for two laps. Held 13th for two laps, 14th the following 16th before falling back into a 31-lap fight with his teammate.

Nonetheless, the consensus in the paddock is that the Russian can be too aggressive and brash in the cockpit, but of course he denies the suggestion: “I have a good feeling for the limits of a car. Some pilots are too easy to overtake because they don’t overstep the limits. I take every opportunity to get the best possible result. Without breaking the rules, of course.

“This is how I have driven since the days of karting. It was never easy to pass me, even when I was in the slowest car. We live in a world where we fight for milliseconds, where you have to exhaust all possibilities. I’m only here to work and drive as fast as possible and I always want to be the first, ”said like a real racing driver.

With a terribly uncompetitive Haas package at their disposal, the two rookies received no favors. They have only one stallion, and invariably get tangled up in their own bitter struggle not to finish last in qualifying and the race, with collisions and a few tricky moments on the track leading to disagreements between the two camps.

But Mazepin said his relationship with his Schumacher was as he “expected” and added: “We are teammates who both want to be the leaders of the team. He won’t accept that he’s number two and neither will I. I want to beat him on the track like any other driver.

“This is how we push each other to perform better. We respect each other and for me, there are two Micks: off piste, I like him and as he is. We are the same age, we are ambitious and talented. If he needed help, I would always try to support him.

The two drivers will stay with Haas for 2022, when a new set of regulations come into effect with the primary focus of leveling the lopsided F1 playing field where Haas sits at the very bottom of the incline.

“Mick deserves 110% of his place in Formula 1,” Mazepin insisted. “As far as I know, there was no other option for him. The same is true of me.

“We’re both fast. I want to fight with him and motivate each other. I know I have to train to follow him because he does it every day. We cannot relax, otherwise we will be left behind.

Mazepin has previously said that Mick’s father Michael Schumacher is one of his heroes and even wears bright red on his helmet as a tribute to the German F1 legend.

“Mick comes from a very talented family. The things her father Michael was so good at can also be seen in Mick. It’s an honor to drive with him, I watch carefully what he does well and try to do it even better.

Meanwhile, Mazepin is still a student, a dovetail college with his busy F1 schedule.

“Despite motorsport, my father made me continue my studies,” Nikita explained. “I am currently the only driver still studying alongside. I finished my baccalaureate during the week.

“Now I will start my masters. My life will not really begin until after Formula 1. I am convinced that one day you will see me running a great company.

The words of a self-confident young man, overflowing with confidence, but with a few serious boxes to tick in his life plan:
