Steiner sees exciting battle in midfield: ‘We must not make mistakes’

Günther Steiner concludes that after the first Grand Prix weekends of 2023, no team is seriously behind. According to the Haas team boss, the midfield is very compact and because of the gap to the top teams, any mistake can be punished hard. The American team has scored one run so far, but next weekend Steiner hopes to add a few more where it all started seven years ago.

After the races in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, ‘only’ two teams are winless. Kevin Magnussen snatched the last point from Yuki Tsunoda in Jeddah and this could become very important according to Steiner. “As I said before, there are only a few points available for the midfield teams,” said the team boss at Motorsportweek.com. ‘From P6 everyone belongs to the midfield, nobody is facing a big disadvantage.’

The top teams will occasionally leave some crumbs for the other teams and it is precisely at those moments that Haas has to strike, Steiner knows. “We have to seize every opportunity. I think we are currently at the front of the midfield, but that could be different every race. All we can do is work hard and make no mistakes, because they will hit us hard.’

Steiner: ‘I will never forget our first race’

The third Grand Prix of the year is already on the program in Australia next weekend. A few years ago, the season was kicked off in Albert Park, including in 2016. It was a special moment for Steiner, because the Haas team made its debut in Formula 1 that weekend. “I will never forget our first race in 2016. We arrived in Australia and we were immediately confronted with the necessary problems. After all, it was only the first race for the team. I will never forget the fact that we scored points right away’, he refers to Romain Grosjean’s sixth place. ‘It’s always wonderful for us to come back there.’
