Nikita Mazepin

The ice-cool Russian is a man of few words – he prefers to do his talking on the track.

Born in Moscow, the straight-faced youngster is extremely competitive and intensely focused. This was evident in his 2018 GP3 campaign, when he took four wins and eight podiums on his way to finishing second in the Championship.

Mazepin endured a tough rookie season in F2, as he took time to get to grips with the machinery, finishing in 18th place.

Swapping ART for newcomers Hitech Grand Prix, Mazepin clinched two wins and earned himself a shot in Formula 1 with HAAS.
