Haas knew it was in for a difficult 2021 Formula 1 season given it chose to write off this year in favour of focussing on the introduction of the new rules in 2022.

But what the team might not have expected was the high level of tension between its two rookie drivers, Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin.

Their relationship didn’t start in the best fashion and it has quickly degraded over the past two race weekends.

At Zandvoort, Schumacher accused Mazepin of deliberately sabotaging his qualifying effort, while at Monza, the duo collided not once, but twice.

Our F1 journalist Edd Straw talks you through the driver rift at Haas, how it came about and what it means for the future for Schumacher, Mazepin and the team.
