The Haas F1 Team Principal Guenther Steiner speaks about diverting their complete attention towards the 2022 challenger than the development program for the 2021 car.
The VF-21 has been the slowest car in the circuit this year. Thus, the American constructor never made their way past the Q3 in two out of the 23 races in the 2021 calendar.
It seems the 2016-founded F1 team isn’t much interested in upgrading their car for the upcoming races, even after their failure at Sakhir and Italy. Therefore, the Haas boss Steiner claimed the regulation changes in 2019, and the doubt about whether the 2020 season will take place or not because of COVID-19, affected the team’s performance. As a result, the Kannapolis outfit took one step backward in ’21 to take an enormous jump in 2022.
In a recent interview, Steiner reported, “It was tough but I still think it’s the right decision. I fully support it. At the time, it was the right decision to do.”
What is next for Haas F1?
Currently, the American F1 team ranks at the bottom of the 2021 Constructor Standings with zero points. Meanwhile, their rookie line-up Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin stands at P18 and P19 respectively with no points.
Both the drivers joined F1 this season, after graduating from Formula Two. Even if both the drivers have a poor season in 2021, they will still have a long way ahead to claim multiple victories.
The Haas F1 is gearing up for the upcoming race at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve on Sunday, May 02. We might not able to see much improvement in the Portugal Grand Prix but things might change in the next season with their 2022 plans.
