Mazepin offers Haas F1 employee incentive program for 2022

The combination of a tough 2021 campaign for Haas, along with the increasing demands of a 23-race schedule next season, has left the team with the likely challenge of keeping their personal best to the max.

But with pilot Nikita’s father Mazepin determined to do whatever he can to help, he came up with a plan to encourage the staff to stay on board and stay fully motivated.

While Uralkali will not change the terms of his sponsorship deal to increase funding for the team’s overall budget, Mazepin believes the new program is a good way to improve the situation.

Talk to the Russian channel Match TV on Thursday, he said: “The existing contract is what we have, but for next year we are offering an additional deal, voluntarily, to get staff to stay, get more involved and understand what ‘It is difficult to service the cars for 23 races and fly to 23 different countries.

“The human factor is very important here, and that’s why we want to increase staff motivation with the team. As sponsors, we want to be part of the team.”

Uralkali entered into a long-term contract with Haas, which was secured thanks to the arrival of Nikita Mazepin.

While the 2021 campaign has been a tough one for Haas, with the team ditching their car development to focus entirely on their 2022 campaign, Dmitry Mazepin is not disheartened by the year.

“We are happy,” he said. “First of all, we are grateful to the team for finding a mutual interest in making this type of agreement. The team has worked hard, but we see great opportunities, which we can realize through effort. spouses, to achieve a higher result then year. “

While Uralkali is closely associated with Nikita Mazepin’s career, his father is clear that the company’s ambitions in F1 are unrelated to the youngster.

Having been interested in buying the Force India team in 2018, Dmitry is clear that he remains open to buying a team.

“We have big ambitions in motorsport and we had an unsuccessful attempt to buy a Formula 1 team,” he said.

“It is always a possibility for us. It is not related to Nikita but is determined by our long term plans. On the contrary, we want to expand our presence in F1.

When asked if his F1 ownership plans revolved around Haas or were not team specific at the moment, Mazepin replied, “Not specific.

“Currently we are not in negotiations because everyone is taking the time to see how things go in 2022 in terms of which team is successful and which is not.

“If suddenly a small team is successful in 2022, then of course their value and appeal will be greater.”
