Haas F1 Plans Not to Trade Ownership, Claims Guenther Steiner

Guenther Steiner on new HASS driver-lineup

Guenther Steiner, the Haas F1 boss opened up about their lack of interest in trading with the ownership of their team. This American team, owned by American businessman Gene Haas is under rumours that Dmitry Mazepin has enppquired about the team.

Dmitry Mazepin, father of driver Nikita Mazepin is a Russian billionaire and the owner of Haas’s sponsor Uralkali. On the other hand Haas is loyal to Ferrari as they take Engines from the Italian giants. So before any kind of huge overhaul takes place in the team, there will be much discussions involved.

Steiner in an interview on this context conveyed, “These are rumours that have no basis whatsoever. Haas still belongs to Mr Haas and it will stay that way.”

Nobody’s happy with Haas F1’s results, thinks Gunther

This American team is currently at P8 in Constructor’s Championship and is yet to score a point. The American team will be fighting for a point in the ongoing Portuguese Grand Prix. However, the team management is not happy with the results, needless to say.

The 56-year-old Italian further asserted on this, “Nobody is happy with the current results, but Gene Haas knows the path we are on. He still enjoys Formula 1 and he is coming here to Portugal. As long as we are better positioned than we currently are in the medium term, that’s ok with him.”

The American outfit’s drivers Nikita Mazepin and Mick Schumacher both qualified for P19 and P20 at the Portimao circuit and it’ll be a miracle if the duo manage to fetch a point from the race in Portugal.

Having said that, no matter what the situation of the team is, it is highly unlikely that Gene will give up the ownership of his beloved team.
