He will run as a “neutral athlete” after the sanction of the Anti-Doping Agency to Russia

If he wins a race, the anthem will not sound; it won’t be heard before the Russian GP either

Nikita Mazepin will not be able to race in Formula 1 with the Russian flag neither this year nor the next due to the sanction of the World Anti-Doping Agency to Russia. The body punished the country with exclusion from all international sporting events after discovering the manipulation of data from its doping control laboratory.

This decision raised questions about Nikita Mazepin’s participation on the Formula 1 grid this year. However, it will ultimately not affect athletes, who will be able to continue participating in international competitions as neutral athletes, according to the Russian Automobile Federation in a statement.

Russian F1, WRC, WRX, WEC, Formula E and karting championship drivers will not be able to use the image of the Russian flag, but their colors. Nor will they be able to use Russian emblems or symbols such as the coat of arms with the double-headed eagle. Yes they can use the acronym of the Russian Automobile Federation, RAF, instead.

Furthermore, the names “Russia” and “Russian Automobile Federation” may not be used, but athletes may be referred to as “neutral athletes“or” neutral athletes from Russia. ”

The flag of the Russian Federation, the name “Russia” or any national symbol emblem may not be displayed on clothing in any official facility or in other areas controlled by the FIA ​​or the organizers of FIA competitions.

It is also prohibited the performance of the national anthem of Russia at the official competition venues, in places controlled by the FIA ​​or its organizer. That is to say, if Mazepin wins a race, the Russian anthem will not sound. It will also not be heard before the start of the F1 Russian Grand Prix race.

These restrictions do not apply to spectators, who may carry Russian national flags to any official FIA competition and event. The sanction of the World Anti-Doping Agency began on December 17, 2020 and will last until December 16, 2022, that is, it will affect the first two F1 seasons of Nikita.
