BREAKING: Formula 1 team Haas sack Nikita Mazepin, son of Russian oligarch with close ties to Vladimir Putin, and call for peace in Ukraine.

‘As with the rest of the Formula 1 community, the team is shocked and saddened by the invasion of Ukraine and wishes for a swift and peaceful end to the conflict.’

Mazepin’s father Dmitry is an oligarch with close links to Vladimir Putin and attended a one-to-one meeting with the Russian President on the same day he launched a military invasion of Ukraine.

Mazepin finished bottom of the driver standings in last season’s F1 championship after failing to make the podium. Max Verstappen beat Lewis Hamilton to the title in controversial circumstances. On Friday, the FIA confirmed Mazepin would need to sign a document forbidding him from voicing support for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in order to compete in the sport this season.
