Nikita Mazepin has seized assets, sacked by Haas F1 team

Sacked F1 star Nikita Mazepin’s luxury life risks ending in ruins as the blows keep coming for Russian glamour.

The glamorous life of Russian driver Nikita Mazepin away from the F1 circuit is threatened.

The 23-year-old ex-Haas star and his oligarch father Dmitry – who is worth an estimated $1.3 billion – had their assets seized by Italian authorities after sanctions were imposed on the pair.

The most prized asset, a luxury villa priced at $153 million in the Portisco district of Olbia, on the northeast coast of Sardinia, was also confiscated from them by the Italian financial police, following Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

The sun reports Mazepin, whose contract was terminated by Haas ahead of the 2022 F1 season, has incredible wealth off the circuit – driving luxury cars, flying in private jets and hanging out with high-profile celebrities.

However, now that he is sanctioned, he may have to prepare to live a simple life.

Mazepin was used to living in a jet set with his father Dmitry, who was worth a fortune thanks to his booming chemical company, Uralchem.

But Mazepin Sr’s life came crashing down last month when the European Union revealed he was ‘a member of the innermost circle’ of Putin’s allies and that his business provided ‘substantial revenue’ to the Russian government. .

He and his son were later added to the EU’s list of EU-sanctioned Russians.

Mazepin Jr was also fired by Haas, even though he was scheduled to race for Team USA.

Nikita was furious. He wrote on Instagram: “Dear fans and followers, I am very disappointed to learn that my F1 contract has been terminated.

“While I understand the difficulties, the FIA’s decision as well as my continued willingness to accept the proposed terms to continue were completely ignored, and no process was followed in this unilateral step.

“To those who tried to understand, my eternal thanks.

“I have cherished my time in F1 and sincerely hope we can all be together again in better times.”

Mazepin later blamed “cancellation culture” on Russia for his sacking.

The Playboy Lifestyle and Famous Friends Could Be Disappearing

What this did to Nikita, who enjoys the playboy life like many F1 stars, ultimately robbed him of his $1.7million-a-year salary.

Proud to live an unobtainable existence for most, he owns a collection of fine cars – a $1.7 million McLaren 720S, an Audi RS Q8 worth around $880,000, as well as a Lamborghini Aventador ($530,000) and a collector’s item, Bugatti Veyron ($1.7). million).

Mazepin regularly dresses in designer yarns and loves his watches. He is often seen wearing brands like Blancpain which could cost him around $180,000.

Ultimately, it’s his high profile friends who may soon disappear from his life.

On social media, there are several shots of Mazepin with a host of celebrities. There’s one with Putin and he’s been seen with Cruz Beckham (son of David Beckham), UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov and soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

And although he has remained coy about his relationship status, he is reportedly close to Venezuelan model Andrea Del Val. In December, the couple were seen arm in arm at a Moscow theater.

A self-described travel consultant, she also loves the jet-set lifestyle.

Mazepin in hot water following fumbling incident

However, in 2020 the pair were embroiled in a controversy that got Mazepin in hot water with Haas.

While on a night out with Del Val and friends, the driver was seen grabbing a woman’s breast in the back seat of a car, leading to her giving him the middle finger in a video shared and then quickly deleted on Instagram.

Del Val claimed she was the one who uploaded the video.

“Hey guys, I just want to let you know that Nikita and I have been good friends for a long time and nothing in this video was serious at all!” she wrote at the time.

“We trust each other so much and it was a silly way to joke between us.

“I posted this video on her story as an inside joke. I’m so sorry.

“I can give you my word that he is a very good person and that he would never do anything to hurt or humiliate me.”

Rocky Ram Abducted

Although friends may come and go, it is his possessions that Mazepin will be most afraid of losing.

The most prized being this $170 million home called Rocky Ram, which was registered in his and his father’s name when it was confirmed to have been foreclosed.

It was purchased in 2012 from an Italian newspaper publisher for an undisclosed amount.

The beachfront villa, on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, has 25 bedrooms, luxurious gardens and a large swimming pool.

A spokesman for the Italian financial police said MailOnline: “Following checks on matters included in the current European Union sanctions list, an arrest warrant has been served on Dmitry Mazepin and his son Nikita Mazepin, driver of the Haas Formula 1 team until March 5, on a residential complex worth 105 million Euro and traceable to both via a foreign company.

Mazepin reportedly owns other properties, including a mansion in Moscow, an apartment in Paris and a place in Monaco.

But, with his career and his dream in tatters, it might be a while before he gets back to rubbing shoulders with the glitz.
