In Azerbaijan, Mazepin slid dangerously right at the last second to block at over 200 mph, while Schumacher in France on Sunday felt like he was being pushed off the track in an overtaking maneuver.
When asked if the relationship had been put to the test in recent weeks, Mazepin said: “You brought up the Monaco point. I think it is very important in life that when you give, you are ready are to take it. ”
