The season started for the only American team on the grid, the Haas F1 team with the driver pairing Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin. The unfortunate circumstances resulted in Nikita Mazepin losing his place, leaving an empty spot in the Haas F1 Team ranks. This was an opportunity for numerous drivers whose eyes lit up when the news broke. Drivers such as Antonio Giovinazzi, Kevin Magnussen and Pietro Fittipaldi have been speculated as favorites to fill the position.

Pietro Fittipaldi, who has served as the reserve driver for the Haas F1 team since 2019, was the leading runner to secure that spot. However, the Haas F1 team’s decision to go down the path of an experienced driver in the form of Kevin Magnussen resulted in disappointment for the young driver.

Pietro Fittipaldi is the grandson of the infamous two-time world champion Emerson Fittipaldi. The young Brazilian, in his 4th year with the HAAS F1 Team, has driven for the team a number of times. Pietro Fittipaldi made his Formula 1 debut in 2020 at the Sakhir Grand Prix. The debutant replaced injured driver Romain Grosjean, who suffered a life-threatening accident. Pietro Fittipaldi drove two races for the Haas F1 Team this season, with Haas F1 Team Principal Günther Steiner giving high praise to the rookie’s performance.

Because what could have been a breakthrough for the young blood turned into sadness. Pietro Fittipaldi shared his views on the words “As a driver, I was obviously disappointed because it was very tight. I understand the team’s decision, but I also know what they could have achieved together.” The aspiring rider is looking forward to Brazilian fans cheering and backing him up. Pietro Fittipaldi was born in Miami and when Formula 1 heads to the Miami Grand Prix he’s looking forward to it.

The seat of a Formula 1 driver may not have been easy for him. However, Pietro Fittipaldi does not give up and continues his season in the ELMS. He would compete in the Le Mans 24 Hours later in the year and summed up his expectations by saying: “I wouldn’t say the chapter is closed.”
