Haas consider Mazepin bonus scheme

Guenther Steiner has confirmed Haas is looking into how it can take advantage of Dmitry Mazepin's proposed bonus scheme.

Nikita Mazepin gave a series of emotional interviews after qualifying for the São Paulo Grand Prix in November, citing a number of personnel changes as the cause.

With a burgeoning calendar one reason for staff moving on, Dmitry Mazepin, the Haas driver's father, has offered to provide a generous bonus structure to tempt personnel to remain with the American-owned team.

A potential barrier to this plan is the strict budget cap introduced to the sport this year but Steiner confirmed the team is exploring how it can take up the 53-year-old's suggestion.

“The offer from Dmitry, we are looking into how we can make it work with the budget cap legally and all that stuff and then we will see and get back to him," said Steiner.

Explaining the situation with existing personnel, Steiner added: “We don’t have people running away. We have about 60 people that have been with us from the beginning.

“At the end of the season, every year some people leave because they want to move on with their career, they want to move on from going to all of the races, so it is not something unexpected."
