There had been discussions of the team dropping out of F1 in 2019, as Gene Haas was reported to be dissatisfied with poor results and unwilling to finance the operation.
But despite the lack of clarity over the future, the team has keep battling away and enjoyed a return to points finishes in 2022, and in 2023 sits seventh in the Constructors’ Championship, trailing Alpine by just six points.
“That’s the biggest thing that stands out, the youngest team is still here.” Steiner said to select members of the media, including Total-Motorsport.com.
“And I think we are getting stronger, so I think that’s the most standout thing of the moments.”
Haas celebrating 150 F1 races
Although Steiner also celebrates the successful results the team has also had such as the fifth place constructors finish in 2018, and the shock pole position the team took at the 2022 Brazilian Grand Prix Sprint Race through Kevin Magnussen.
Haas celebrates their survival with their 150th Grand Prix appearance at the 2023 Monaco GP and has the chance to build on their points haul.
Monaco’s narrow streets demands a lot of risk and commitment from the drivers, and this could be something that Magnussen excels at, and Nico Hulkenberg isn’t a bad qualifier either.
“Here, as you all know, has a lot to do with a driver’s confidence.” Steiner said. “ I think we should be okay but this year, you never know until you go out there on a Friday.”
