Among the most curious moments of qualifying for the Sao Paulo Grand Prix, the reaction of Nikita Mazepin, who finished 20th and last with his Haas. The Russian, author of a spectacular but decisive skid at the exit of turn 12, was unable to gain a few positions in the standings, calling himself “an idiot” in the radio team during the return lap.
Subsequently, in the interviews after qualifying, the 22-year-old Muscovite expressed all his disappointment to the microphones, so much so that he barely held back tears while analyzing what happened on the track:
Keep your head up @nikita_mazepin!

“I was doing a good lap – has explained – and then I made a mistake at turn 12. The car was very good and I thought this was our day to get closer to the Williams. I gave it my all, the guys did a great job and I had never ridden on this track. I ruined all“.
