Steiner:

Haas F1 Team drivers Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen qualified 15th and 19th, respectively, for the Monaco Grand Prix Sunday at Circuit de Monaco. Grosjean, however, will start 18th as he must serve a three-place grid penalty stemming from the preceding Spanish Grand Prix. Grosjean set the 11th-fastest time in Q1 with a lap of 1:12.930 to comfortably make the top-15 cutoff and advance to Q2. Magnussen was 19th quickest with a lap of 1:13.393.

For the second straight race, Haas F1 Team scored a point-paying result as Romain Grosjean delivered an eighth-place finish at the Bahrain Grand Prix.

Haas disappointed with double DNF

Haas F1 Team entered the first round of the 2017 FIA Formula One World Championship with plenty of optimism.

Poor debut for Haas on home soil

Haas did not enjoy a positive debut on home soil after experiencing a series of issues on Friday with the main one being the rear brake drum’s winglets falling off the car. The team says the loads are very high in Austin and this might have caused the problems, but hopes to fix it before heading into the last practice session. Romain Grosjean’s best time in FP1 was a lap of 1:40.826 which put him 14th overall, while Esteban Gutiérrez slotted just behind his team mate. […]

Haas frustrated over pointless race

Romain Grosjean and Esteban Gutiérrez did not bring any point to their team after finished 11th and 20th, respectively in the Japanese GP at Suzuka. Haas drivers had to start the race on the same set of soft tires they used in Q3 and bet on a two-stop strategy to score good results. Grosjean started the race from seventh and Gutiérrez rolled off in 10th, with the first being pushed wide at the start by Nico Hulkenberg, which dropped him to ninth. Gutiérrez held his […]

Haas is yet to show full potential

Haas’s team principal warns we are yet to see the full potential of their VF-16s despite their difficult weekend at the previous round in Singapore. Guenther Steiner explains the team has put that experience behind and is now focus on the next opportunity that comes with this weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix. “We analyze what we’ve done and find out what went wrong and try to put measures in place so it doesn’t happen again. On the morale side, I think the guys were a little bit […]

Grosjean disappointed by 'worst Friday'

A mechanical issue in the first practice session and a crash during the second one left Romain Grosjean with only 12 laps completed in today’s preparation for the Singapore Grand Prix. Grosjean’s desire for a strong start to the race weekend was squashed almost immediately when in the first practice sessions his car developed problems on its installation lap. The technical issues led to a 25-minute stint in the garage, and when trouble continued on a second installation lap, the team decided to end his run […]

Grosjean enjoys Spa’s challenges

Haas F1 Team’s Romain Grosjean is keen to return to Spa-Francorchamps, a circuit that has historically been one of the drivers’ favorite locations to race. The multitude of changes in weather conditions usually turns the Belgian Grand Prix in an unpredictable event. Spa has high-speed straights and corners combined with a tight and twisting section, where the car relies on a good set up so it can tackle all the different aspects of the track. “It’s just a great track. There are very high-speed corners […]
