Wow. Just wow. Not fit to drive a pedal car it seems let alone a single seat race car.
Apparently it happens a lot in the lower categories. Not an excuse, but it does
Not to that extent, it doesn’t. Why would someone single him out to make a compilation video last year? He departed F2 with 11 points on his race licence.
I said it happens a lot, not that it happens to Mazepin level. As in a lot more than you'd think, I should have been clearer.

It's one of those things you do see a lot of in F2 and definitely in F3 - where they're essentially kids still trying to get away with things that obviously aren't acceptable as they progress upwards!

In the end the super license system is supposed to stop those that don't learn from progressing.. But naturally, there are other influences (cough - money - cough) that tend to affect certain decisions..

Apart from the comedy spins and barrier bumps which are great fun - it's stuff like this from Mazepin that isn't actually funny at all in F1. Just listen to how the other drivers speak about him.

Did I see him sitting on a high speed corner on the racing line going slowly today nearly causing a crash with Perez?

FP2, yes.

I don't think he's been to a single circuit yet where he's failed to ps off multiple drivers.
