Former commercial director of the Caterham team and ex-manager of the Russian racer Vitaly Petrova Oksana Kosachenko commented on Nikita Mazepin’s retirement in his debut Formula 1 race.
She noted that she does not believe that there were any technical reasons for the incident.
“I would like to give a little optimism, forward and with the song. Nikita started. In qualification, the lag was not very significant compared to the total weight of the pilots. Two young guys at once, the Haas CEO has a lot to work with young people. Let’s be a little more positive about this, ”added Kosachenko.
The 22-year-old Russian retired on the first lap. In the third turn, he made a mistake, lost control and, flying off the track, crashed the car on a protective barrier.
Earlier Mazepin named the reason for his retirement in the debut Formula 1 race.
