Guenther Steiner Analyses Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin “They Will spin Again but..”

Guenther Steiner, the Haas F1 team boss is confident about the team’s new recruits Nikita Mazepin and Mick Schumacher of scoring big in a few years time. The boss expresses that the duo “will spin again but” in a different way.

The rookies Mazepin and Mick made their Formula One debut this season with Haas, having performed brilliantly in Formula Two last season. Russian Mazepin crashed right at the start of the Bahrain Grand Prix race day while his teammate junior Schumacher finished the race in the last position.

Haas are now in a direct competition with the other three teams and Steiner is of the opinion that his drivers have the capability to turn the table upside down.

The American racing outfit are currently at P7 despite scoring 0 points at Sakhir Circuit. Interestingly , four of the ten teams namely Alpine, Haas, Alfa Romeo and Williams, competing for the Constructor’s Championship have scored 0 points here.

The 55-year-old Italian engineer boss talked to the media regarding the duo’s uncharacteristic spins on the track. He conveyed, “I do not think that they will do that again. They will spin again, but not in the way they did today.”

Gunther is optimistic about his drivers that they learned their lessons and will not commit the mistakes further.

With a confident voice, the team boss further stated, “This was a new experience, in a race, you know, trying to fight with other cars, and sometimes to be a little bit too optimistic. I think when you fight they need to learn this fighting.”

Having come from Formula Two, it takes time to adjust to the Formula One’s fast pace and speed. The cars are of higher performance, the steering are more sensitive and the competition is stiffer.

Haas will fightback, believes team boss Gunther Steiner

Steiner also added in regard to this, “I think both of them went on to the throttle too harsh, you know, and they then went on the kerb or something like this. And it’s just, you know, these cars are so powerful, and when the torque kicks in, you get a kick and you cannot recoup them anymore. So I think this is down to making the experience.”
