Unorthodox Director Maria Schrader Says She Immediately Knew Shira Haas Was the Right Esty

  Unorthodox Director Maria Schrader Says She Immediately Knew Shira Haas Was the Right Esty "We probably had seen 40, 50 different actresses and all of a sudden there she was. I remember I almost had a physical reaction to it because it got me so excited," said Maria SchraderDuring Sunday evening's 72nd Annual Emmy Awards, Schrader took home the golden statuette for outstanding directing for a limited series, movie or dramatic special for the four-part Netflix series, which was released in March.

Although Callum Ilott will take the wheel for Haas in training at the Nürburgring, according to Günter Steiner, the Briton is currently not an option for the team in the 2021 season.

Next weekend will be Callum Ilott driving a Formula 1 car for the first time as part of an official racing weekend. The Briton will do a free practice session for Haas in order to collect important data for the team. The US racing team is currently looking for drivers for the 2021 season, but according to team boss Günther Steiner, Ilott is currently not an option.

"He is a Ferrari driver and is therefore not on the list," Steiner explains. "Giving someone a cockpit as a result of free practice would also be a bit difficult for me. He belongs to Ferrari and I don't know what the team has in mind with him, what the plan is. But I have great respect for him. He's in in Formula 2 in second place, which shows that he is good. "

Ilott could be an option.

Steiner suggests that Ilott could be on the list after his free practice session. However, according to Steiner, a free practice session is not a suitable session for a driver to convince a team of themselves. He says: "I think we have to avoid trying to impress us. When drivers try to impress you, they mostly disappoint you because they are doing something that is not good."

That is why the Haas puller will talk to the youngster about the goals and tasks before using Ilott in training. "We want constant feedback and not fast lap times," Steiner's clear message. "He's been in a Formula 1 car before, so he knows it, even if it's been a long time. He can impress us by not doing anything stupid."

Steiner also makes it clear: "If he is on our list, it is not because of the result in free practice! If he does something that he should avoid, like crashing the car, then he will certainly not be on our list."

Leicester hit Man City for five, Tottenham pay harsh penalty

  Leicester hit Man City for five, Tottenham pay harsh penalty Jamie Vardy's hat-trick dealt an early blow to Manchester City's hopes of wrestling back the Premier League title as they conceded three penalties in a 5-2 defeat to Leicester, while Newcastle's late spot-kick to snatch a 1-1 draw at Tottenham sparked fresh debate over the handball rule. City were without a host of first-team regulars due to injury and coronavirus infections, but the deficiencies at the back that undid their title defence last season were again exposed by the pace and finishing prowess of Vardy as a Pep Guardiola team conceded five for the first time in his coaching career.

There must have been talks between Ferrari and Haas in the run-up to Ilott's Formula 1 debut to discuss the use in training. When asked whether a full-time cockpit for Ilott was also discussed, Steiner replied: "No, we didn't talk about it. Unfortunately, I have to disappoint you. We only talked about the first free practice, nothing else."

Steiner also makes it clear that Haas is only connected to Ferrari via the engine deal. "If we want to have a young driver, of course we talk to them first," said the Haas team boss, who currently does not want to be in the shoes of Ferrari. After all, with Ilott, Mick Schumacher and Robert Schwarzman, the Italian team has three talents who want to go to the premier class.

"Ferrari has the problem of having three really good drivers in the top 5 of Formula 2," said Steiner about the luxury problem at Ferrari. "I don't know how you are going to solve this problem and I'm glad it's not mine."

Anyone who will drive for Haas in the 2021 Formula 1 season is currently still in the stars . According to Steiner, there are numerous options for the US team, but he does not want to mention them until a collaboration is over and done with.

"I don't want to go into the numbers," says Steiner. "As far as the drivers are concerned, we keep getting better. It's not an easy task, but we solve it slowly. I don't want to go into the details or say how many potential drivers there are. As soon as we know something, we will announce."
