Steiner, after admitting he will be surprised if the team gets to score points I tis upcoming season, he declared e felt confident that the American team can imitate the great results they got from their first tree campaigns inn Formula 1 but until the year 2022.
He predicts Haas is facing big challenge this year:
"We’ve got two young drivers that we need to develop, and we will develop over the year," said Steiner according to RacingNews365.
"That will come with some excitement, I’m sure of that. Then the light at the end of the tunnel is 2022 where we will be back at our full strength because we regrouped last year and we made a step back to make two forward
"If we can get a point or two at some stage – that would be a fantastic result. But we are realistic, and points will be hard to come by. As long as we learn, we improve, and can get back to where we were in the past – I’m happy.
"It’s going to be a hard climb this season, but we will get something good out of it, we always do.”
The Italian principal to the American team also revealed that the engineers already saw gains on the Ferrari power unit, which they hope can get them closer to their rivals and a chance to fight for championship points. Guenter said this first race weekend they will be able to get a clear idea of ow much of an improvement has been made on the power unit.
"For us it’s very difficult to have a back-to-back with the power unit from last year. But I fully trust Ferrari in what they are saying to us as well as what they’re doing," added Steiner. "We can see on their car that it’s better.
"For us, our testing was mainly focused on getting the two rookies as many laps as possible. We couldn’t really do back-to-back as Mick, for example, was only in last year’s car for one full day after Abu Dhabi, and Nikita only drove a Haas F1 car for the first time on our shakedown in Bahrain this year.
Steiner declared that he fully trusts Ferrari and said he is sure the power unit is more powerful.
