When Formula One returns to Imola coming weekend, Guenther Steiner is optimistic that Haas will be able to recapture the performance they showed during first two races of the year.
After crashing to a halt previous time out in Melbourne, Guenther Steiner has described what Haas wishes to accomplish in the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
The Australian weekend was considerably more comparable to the weekends Haas faced throughout 2021, with the American-led team getting points with excellent last positions from Kevin Magnussen in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.
Although neither Magnussen nor Mick Schumacher were capable of scoring points in Melbourne, Haas team chief Guenther Steiner is convinced that his squad will be able to recover quickly for this weekend’s Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
“The whole weekend was very challenging, starting with little issues on Mick’s car and Kevin not being on top form because he didn’t feel well,” Steiner said in his official preview ahead of the Imola weekend.
“Nevertheless, [even] with all these hindrances, we still got close to points. In the race, we didn’t get lucky with the Safety Cars which could’ve helped our strategy, but we put Australia behind us.”
With the VF-22 showing quick in the appropriate conditions, Steiner is looking forward to a more relaxing weekend at the Italian racetrack.
“It’s a very competitive championship this year and you need to be perfect to get points,” he said.
“What I take to Imola is that the car is still performing, and we will perform as we go on. I hope we get to Imola having fewer unfortunate instances.”
Haas faces an additional challenge in Sprint Qualifying
With Haas’ arrangement for Australia appearing to be moving backwards, Steiner acknowledged that Imola will present an added problem.
This is owing to F1’s use of the Sprint Qualifying system for the first time this season, which means the cars will be in parc ferme from the beginning of Friday qualifying.
As a result, the teams will only have one 60-minute practise session to settle out their weekend lineups.
“For sure, it will be challenging because we’ve only got one free practice session to find a good set-up,” Steiner admitted.
“With the difficulties of these cars and the inexperience we have got with it, it won’t be easy, but it’s the same for everybody and who is better prepared will have a better car, so we will be trying our best like everybody else.
“I think it is a good thing for the championship to have these Sprint races and I really look forward to it.”
