Last updated:

The Mazepin name could become a permanent feature on the grid in the near future, as Dmitry Mazepin has confirmed his interest in buying a Formula One team.

Dmitry Mazepin, the father of Nikita Mazepin, has revealed plans to become Formula One’s next team owner.

In an interview with Match.tv Mazepin confirmed his ambitions and said:

“There are our long-term plans – we want to expand our presence in Formula 1. We have the Hitech team represented in Formula 2, 3 and 4. Ideally, the crown would be an F1 team and we want to own it.”

The billionaire businessman is already the primary sponsor for the Haas F1 team and signed a “long-term” contract with the team at the beginning of 2021. His role as a benefactor played a major role in obtaining a seat in the team for his son, Nikita.

When asked about a possible buyout from current owner Gene Haas, Mazepin said:

“Not only that. At the moment we are not negotiating with anyone, because everyone has taken a break and is waiting for the cards to be revealed in 2022 – who will be successful and who will not.

“If suddenly some small teams become successful next season, their value and attractiveness will be different.”
