Haas team principal Guenther Steiner is to hold clear-the-air talks with feuding drivers Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin before this weekend's Italian Grand Prix in a bid to calm fraying tempers.
Schumacher and Mazepin initially clashed following qualifying at Zandvoort, with the Russian driver claiming his German team-mate had broken unwritten in-house rules.
During the early stages of the race, Mazepin closed the door on Schumacher at full throttle as the track narrowed at pit entry, leading to a broken front wing on the latter's VF-21 and ruining his race in an attempt to avoid a nasty crash.
