    So the son of a Russian oligarch exhibited “poor behavior” during a possible sexual assault?... Anyone surprised? Personally, I’m not surprised at all. How someone is to ‘better themself’ in ‘a practical manner’ is beyond me. When someone acts as if they are a scumbag, if they suddenly are not acting like a scumbag, typically they are simply acting.

    Disclaimer: I seriously won't even bother to watch this. The title says everything to me. Consider this: who would ever say, about you, that you're doing the utmost to be a better human being? This is either the description of what ever decent person does every day or the testament of Mazepin's utter inability to be a decent human being, given his public reputation of being anything but. To be a better person is only an effort deserving of mention if it is hard to accomplish. And if it is hard for Mazepin to accomplish that... he is definitely in the wrong place.

      @Ned Davis groping a girl when drunk is not 'discrimination', nor is it 'detrimental to the physical or mental integrity (doping)' of him. He did breach 1.4 when he punched Callum Ilott but he received (IMO a very lenient) race ban for that.

    What people don’t understand is that this is completely normal behavior for a son of a Russian oligarch. His father, like all other Russian oligarchs steal huge amounts of money from the Russian people through corruption and that is the money that paid for his seat at Haas. That is why Haas is defending him - they need the investment. Children of Russian oligarchs do much worse, including driving at insane speeds in the center of Moscow and running into people, killing them, and not going to prison. Ever. 😐 So keeping all this is mind, Mazepin was behaving completely normally in his own mind, so why in the world would he sincerely feel sorry or apologize to this woman? These people believe they are kings of the world and can do whatever it is they want, unfortunately. This behavior needs to be boycotted 💯 %

    Gunther simply is saying the things needed to keep daddy Mazepin spending the money. The reality is F1 should be ashamed considering the movement and emphasis during the last year of respect and equality. If you think this is the first time Mazepin has done something of this nature you’d be very wrong. This type of behaviour shows a level of arrogance and a sense of immunity which can only be assumed because he’s from a rich family. Does this doom Mazepin? It shouldn’t, but he shouldn’t have been able to keep his drive this year. He shouldn’t been forced to stay in F2 or somewhere else to prove 1. He’s matured, 2. He’s deserving of the seat. What F1, the FIA and Haas have done is say “mistakes” happen but money let’s us move on in ways others would not have benefited from. I say “mistakes” because this wasn’t a mistake as I said above. This was a man thinking he’s above other people and using his perceived power to get what he wants.

    What I fear most about this controversy is that a young man, who's character we have only 10% of an idea of, lets be real, is being characterised based on this one incident. It almost feels like the media are deliberately missing the point of this whole thing. Let's be clear and factual, Mazipin didn't do anything wrong in terms of what happened in the video. The young woman was clearly okay with the situation and even posted on her IG that there's nothing to worry about, they're friends. In that context, what he did is completely fine. A man and a women can interact like that, even publicly or on camera if they both consent to, which I believe they both were in consent of. Under that basis, why is the media still trying to make out he's wrong for what he did? It doesn't make any sense. He's not wrong for what he did in the video! He's only wrong because he didn't realise the responsibility of what being a an F1 driver is. All he did wrong was behave in a way that is inappropriate for a F1 drivers to display publicly, because first the money involved on his employers side, but then in the role model sense. People look up to other people in positions such as Mazipins so he shouldn't (publicly!) behave in a way that encourages young and naive people may replicate in misunderstood ways. That's the only crime (not legally). But I fear the media are trying to portray it as he's a bad person because of the contents of the video itself, which is wrong in my opinion. They're not directly saying it, because they know that's wrong too. But they're implying it subtly because they can make more of a story out of it, and there fore more money in the grand scheme of it. Point is that the way this whole thing is being portrayed and handled is wrong. People are missing the point and targeting a young man, be It a son of a Billionaire (have your opinions on that..), but characterising him as a predator when in reality he's just a kid who hasn't quite understood his position yet is just wrong. Why can't someone just say it how it is?

    Motor sports has gone the way of money to play for awhile now. It totally diminishes the ideal that the best drivers get a chance at any level. In the next few years it’s going to be just a rich daddy sport. Not what any enthusiast wants. It’s inevitable and as our world copes with deepening poverty. This sport will loose relevance for the masses.

      How many mistakes does he need to keep making though? He beat up Callum Ilott, he had a party when is dads miners were trapped, he had another party when his dads miners were announced dead and it was declared a Russian national day of mourning, he’s constantly harassing young women for nudes and then when they don’t give them to him he gets nasty, the groping incident with this model (somebody here incorrectly called his girlfriend) when they barely knew each other! All he had to do was apologise in person and people might have been a little more willing to forgive but he doesn’t, he tries to hide behind his dads billions and it’s disgusting!
