Haas interested in teaming up with Alfa Romeo confirms Steiner

Haas team principal Guenther Steiner discusses a potential link up with Alfa Romeo


Guenther Steiner has expressed his interest in teaming up with Alfa Romeo in the near future but has denied a deal has already been agreed between the two parties.

With Audi set to take over the running of Sauber in 2026, the team’s current partner Alfa Romeo’s Formula 1 future is in doubt beyond 2023 amidst rumours they may leave the series to go to the World Endurance Championship.

One team which could partner with the Milanese marque is Haas, who have been rumoured to have a deal agreed on, although it hasn’t been made official.

“I actually don’t have an update,” Steiner exclusively told Total-Motorsport.com. “I mean, because I don’t know what Alfa Romeo wants to do, they need to decide if they want to stay in Formula 1 or not. 

“That has nothing to do with me, I don’t comment for Alfa Romeo. I know the people [at Alfa Romeo] very well, and I know a lot of other people very well.

“If they want to stay F1 for sure, we are interested [it would] be an interesting partner. But there is no deal on the way at the moment.”

Unbothered about proving critics wrong as Hulkenberg shines

Before August’s Dutch Grand Prix, Haas retained their current driver lineup for 2024. Kevin Magnussen stays on for another season alongside Nico Hulkenberg, who picked up the team’s best finish of seventh in Australia.

Hulkenberg replaced Mick Schumacher following the 2022 season with the decision enraging Ralf Schumacher, who accused Steiner of having personal issues with the young German.

“I don’t [get] any satisfaction out of proving people wrong,” said Steiner. “It’s nice to see that we made the right decision for the team.

“But you’re not here to prove anybody wrong. I’m not here to do that.”
