Former Haas Formula 1 driver Nikita Mazepin reigned victorious on his return to racing this weekend, winning in the LMP2 category of the Asian Le Mans Series.
He was joined by Louis Deletraz and Ahmad Al Harthy in the car, driving for 99 Racing at the old Malaysian Grand Prix circuit.
As is often the case in Sepang’s humid climate, torrential rain affected the weekend, forcing the race to be cut short by ten minutes as Mazepin returned to the top step of the podium for the first time since his F2 days.
It has been nearly two years since Mazepin was dropped by Haas, the American outfit terminating his contract over the conflict in Ukraine.
