In the Canadian Grand Prix, woes seemed to be limitless for Haas F1 Racing Team as both their drivers–Mick Schumacher and Kevin Magnussen, who qualified in P8 and P6 respectively, could not even finish their races due to reliability issues–thus losing out on some much-needed and guaranteed Championship points. And right after that, it appears that Haas is in for even bigger trouble as their former recruit Nikita Mazepin has revealed that he is going to sue the team for withholding his salary payment for the 2022 season of F1.

In a report that has arrived recently, it seems that Haas F1 team is going to have a lawsuit chasing them down as Nikita Mazepin, whose high-profile exit from the team amidst the Ukraine-Russia unrest caused much uproar amongst the motorsport enthusiasts’ community, is set to sue the American team over “salary arrears” that they owe Mazepin for the year 2022.

In a recent statement, former Haas driver Nikita Mazepin, who was let off by the team after only one year of driving under them, has dropped a bombshell claim that he is going to see the team executives in the court where he will press charges against them for wrongfully withholding salary for this year, that he should have been paid by now.

Nikita Mazepin has said, “When the contract was terminated, Haas had a salary arrears to me for 2022. And they still haven’t paid it. I’m only talking about the fact that contractual obligations were not fulfilled.

He also said, “You also need to understand that we had two independent contracts. And breaking the agreement with the title sponsor [Uralkali] did not have a direct impact on my future in the team. So they [Haas] made two separate decisions. I didn’t see my money, so we’re going to court.”
