“Hopefully We Haven’t Got the Whole Year to Spin !” Haas F1 Boss Guenther Steiner Goes Easy on Mazepin’s Spinning at Imola FP1

Guenther Steiner, the Haas F1 boss went easy on their new Formula One recruit Nikita Mazepin as he once again spun his car during the ongoing Free Practice Session 1 at the upcoming Imola Grand Prix. The young Russian’s tendency to spin his car on the track isn’t new to his team or to the fans.

Notably, Mazepin has spun his car a significant amount of time during the practice session and qualification at Bahrain Grand Prix and crashed out at the beginning of the final race.

The team boss, Steiner believes the Muscovite is trying too hard to amend things. In an interview, the boss conveyed, “At some stage, they [the spins] need to be reduced, but he’s trying very hard for that – and I guess he’s trying sometimes a little bit too hard.”

Guenther Steiner wants “MazeSPIN” to find the limit

Not only Mazepin, the new Haas recruit is trying too hard but also he needs to learn to drive his fast cockpit to perfection.

In that regard, the 56-year-old Italian further asserted, “He needs to find that limit. But that’s for him to find, not us. We can help him in doing that, but it’s one of these things that I’ve said before: learning is painful. It comes with pain, but at some stage that will hopefully stop and he will be in a good place.”

Guenther is of the opinion that Nikita will know the limit one day, as he’s working tremendously to rectify his flaws. This is his first season in Formula One and nobody knows what this rookie will earn for the team.

The Muscovite needs to take it easy, gather all senses and improve as the season goes on, his team boss believes. It will be interesting to see how Mazepin fares at the upcoming Imola Grand Prix.
