Haas team principal Steiner met with Sepang International Circuit chief executive Dato’ Razlan Razali on Sunday morning ahead of the race to discuss the incident and request compensation for the damage, which was significant. The floor and front wing, which was brand new, were damaged “We pay to come here, we pay a fee to come here, everybody has to pay. We discussed it and they were very professional about it. They have insurance, let's see what we can do.” Circuit officials are discussing the situation internally and further talks with Haas are expected to take place this week

Romain Grosjean's error-strewn 2018 campaign is starting to test Haas ' patience , with team principal Guenther Steiner admitting that he is unwilling to The retirement represents a return to form of sorts for Grosjean, who had finally got off the mark for 2018 with an impressive drive to fourth in the Austrian Grand Prix a week previously. Only Brendon Hartley has failed to see the chequered flag more times than Grosjean this year, with Haas ' frustrations magnified by the fact that their car has consistently been the best of the rest behind Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull.

Guenther Steiner is close to his tolerance threshold with the number of costly crashes involving the Haas team’s rookie drivers.

The latest incident involved Mick Schumacher in FP3 for the Hungarian Grand Prix, hitting the wall at Turn 11 with an impact that left the team narrowly short of enough time to repair the car for qualifying.

Saturdays have not been lucky for the German on a few occasions this season. A similar scenario occurred in Monaco, while at the French Grand Prix, Schumacher put Haas in Q2 for the first time all year – but could not take part as he crashed right at the end of Q1.

Haas Team Principal Guenther Steiner has emerged as one of the stars of Netflix’s Drive To Survive series, chiefly because of the way he handled the team’s galling double retirement at the 2018 Australian Grand Prix – the result of cross-threaded wheel nuts. And Steiner was once again facing It wasn’t all bad for Haas , however. Last year, the team came away from Australia with no points after both Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen's retirements from top five positions. But in 2019, Magnussen headed the midfield after a strong drive in the #20 Haas which saw him putting some strong moves on

Haas Team Principal Guenther Steiner has thanked the rescue crews who were first on the scene when Romain Grosjean suffered a huge crash on lap one of the Bahrain Grand Prix. Bahrain Grand Prix red flagged as Romain Grosjean escapes big crash on Lap 1. The car, heavy with fuel, appeared to split in two as it pierced the barrier and immediately burst into flames. Marshals were quick on the scene to extinguish the flames as Grosjean freed himself from the wreckage, with FIA doctor Ian Roberts helping to pull Grosjean over the barriers to safety.

Haas are not in as financially strong a position as the vast majority of their rivals on the grid, so damage to the cars eats into their budget – and Steiner, the team principal, is starting to lose some of his patience with the repair work being caused by Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin.

“Mick in the last five races had quite a few big ones,” said Steiner, quoted by Motorsport.com.

“If you have a spin or something like that, this happens. But these accidents are quite heavy. It’s a lot of money and for no good reason.

“So we have to work on it, to get better on that one. And obviously the budget is the budget and you need to stick to it. You always have to have ideas how to get around it when you have these accidents.

“At the moment, obviously we feel it but we can still deal with it. But soon we will be in a position where it’s like, yeah, we need to find new ways to overcome this. Because they are getting a little bit too frequent and too heavy.”

Haas . 0. 2021 Constructor Standings. Getting lost in this utterly nonsense and completely manufactured by the media and disgruntled fans "speedgate", is that RB also boned themselves on tire strategy for tomorrow. Not only will Max now be starting behind a unifed Merc front row that won't be keen to let him through, but he'll be doing it on soft tires which puts him on either an undesirable 2 stopper or even a 3 stopper while both Merc will be on the mediums setting themselves up for a more advantageous 2 stop strategy.

Haas Team Principal Guenther Steiner says the American team's form cannot get any worse after a frustrating start to the 2019 F1 season In the race, Grosjean’s afternoon was ruined within seconds when he was forced to take avoiding action at the start following a three-car contact between Sergio Perez, Alexander Albon and Antonio Giovinazzi. Thereafter both Haas cars lacked the performance to compete for points, as has often been the case this season, and with an impressively competitive midfield, that has been punished and leaves them down in eighth in the constructors’ championship.

Although Schumacher’s team-mate has acquired the nickname ‘Maze-spin’, in fairness to the Russia-born driver he has been keeping things cleaner of late.

“We make too many mistakes, that is the problem – or I would say, in defence of Nikita, I shouldn’t use the plural because in the last races he behaved very well,” added Steiner.

“He did very well. He didn’t do any damage or anything. And Mick, just the last races we had some accidents which we need to get better at.

“From our side, we just have to make plans how we spend our money. We know exactly what we are doing on parts and this.

Friday's wet weather in Melbourne has left the Haas F1 team “not as prepared as it should be” ahead of the Australian Grand Prix, according to team principal Gunther Steiner . With both of today’s practice sessions marred by inconsistent weather conditions, meaningful running was kept to a minimum as the new Formula 1 season kicked into life in Melbourne. That was particularly bad news from Haas , F1’s newest team left feeling significantly underprepared after a low-key Friday.

Haas ' promising British Grand Prix prospects dissipated at the outset on Sunday when Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean made contact during a chaotic opening lap. Shortly after the start, the skirmish up ahead at Silverstone's Turn 3 between Kimi Raikkonen and Lewis Hamilton forced the I think we lost quite a few points," rued team boss Guenther Steiner . "We need to go away and evaluate what actually happened at turn 3 and avoid this for the future. "Romain apologised to Kevin, I guess he waited with his braking a little bit too long. "There was a piece of floor missing [from Magnussen's car]

“But to deal with the drivers, it’s mainly just maybe sitting down and explain the big picture again, that sometimes you need to take risk but you take risk if there is opportunity. I think at the moment, we shouldn’t take this risk in FP3.”

Schumacher still had a chance of participating in qualifying right until near the end of Q1, but did not get on track and almost certainly was going to start at the back anyway as he incurred a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change after his crash.

“All weekend long it was tough to drive,” said Schumacher, who indicated he will start the race from the pit lane, of his car.

“The boys made a great job in getting everything ready and trying to get it driveable, but unfortunately we were lacking around five to 10 minutes, which was very unfortunate and sad.

“It’s one of those things where I just have to learn a bit more from it and try to be a bit more consistent and keep it on the grey stuff.”
