After all: for the first time, insight wins! “He braked pretty early,” reports Mazepin. “That’s why I saw the chance to stab it. Mick had problems braking the whole race. Still, it was absolutely my fault. I saw the chance, it didn’t work and I couldn’t evade it, I’m very sorry. “
Not so for his uncle Ralf Schumacher. The Sky expert is – mostly rightly – Mazepin’s biggest critic. Again on Sunday in Monza. “You can see how Nikita Mick drives bluntly onto the rear wheel. That was again a misjudgment. ”
The reason, according to the older Schumacher: “He wants to show by force that he is faster than Mick – which he just isn’t. The race suits the character. Just go through everything like a bulldozer, no matter how. At some point that would be an educational issue – luckily, not mine. “
Mazepin retired from the Italian GP with engine problems on his Haas Ferrari.
