F1 team Haas has terminated the contract of Russian Formula One driver Nikita Mazepin and their sponsorship with Uralkali with immediate effect.

The team announced it's split with Mazepin in the wake of Russia's ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

His father, oligarch Dmitry Mazepin, is a part-owner of Haas's former title sponsor, Uralkali, and an associate of Russian president Vladimir Putin.

The FIA had given Mazepin the go ahead to continue racing under a neutral flag for the season but he had continued to face scrutiny over his homeland's attack on Ukraine.

Seems a bit harsh for the driver, but the connections of his father with Putin have caused his contract to be ended.

The more pressure on public bodies and events the more likely it is that the ordinary russian mushroom (ie: kept in the dark and fed crap) will gradually realise that they are world pariahs.
