WATCH: Mazepin Embraces the ‘Maze-spin’ F1 Meme in Hilarious Steiner Exchange
Haas driver Nikita Mazepin has had a tough start to his F1 career. Before even beginning his journey in F1, he got involved in a controversy. He posted a controversial video on his social media which was not received in good taste. There was an outcry of banning the driver from Formula 1.
From his first race at the pinnacle of motorsport, Mazepin has struggled to control the car. He has earned himself the nickname’ Maze-spin’ as he spins the car in almost every race.
In a recent video posted on the Haas social media platform, we see Haas team principal Gunther Steiner taking a dig at his driver.

Now we have two ‘Maze-spin’: Steiner to Nikita Mazepin
In the video, we can clearly see that Steiner is clearly taking a mickey out of the Russian’s nickname. He presented a box to the Russian, which had a spinning top.
” There is a little present for you. So, you can keep on Maze-spinning,” said Steiner to Nikita Mazepin.
To his cheeky gift, Nikita replied by saying Haas already has a ‘Maze-spin’,” It’s here” said Nikita, pointing to himself.
But Gunther quickly replied,” Now we have two ‘Maze-spin. So now can spin this better than spinning the car.” said Steiner, referring to Mazepin’s tendency to spin the car.
