Haas F1 Team representative Gunter Steiner is approaching the limits of tolerance due to the frequent costly crashes of the team’s rookie drivers.
The latest accident was Mick Schumacher. He hit the wall on turn 11 in his third free run at the F1 Hungarian Grand Prix and was unable to repair the car by qualifying.
This season, Mick Schumacher made a mistake on Saturday. A similar scenario occurred in Monaco, where Haas F1 made the only advance to Q2 this season at the F1 Glance GP, but was unable to run in Q2 due to a crash just before the end of Q1.
Haas F1 is not as financially strong as the majority of its rivals on the m-grid, and damage to the car will eat up the budget. And team representative Steiner is beginning to lose some of his patience in the repair work caused by Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin.
“Mick has had quite a few big crashes in the last five races,” Gunter Steiner said. ..
“If you have a spin, this happens, but these accidents are pretty heavy. It costs a lot of money and there is no good reason.”
“So we need to work on it. Of course, the budget is the budget and we need to follow it. Whenever we have an accident like this, we need to have an idea of how to avoid it. be”
“At this point, I clearly feel that way, but I can still deal with it, but soon we are in a position to find new ways to overcome this. They wake up a little more often. It’s too heavy and it’s too heavy. “
Mick Schumacher’s teammate was nicknamed “Mazespin,” but to be fair, he’s been keeping his car clean lately.
“We make too many mistakes. That’s the problem. To protect Nikita, his behavior in the last few races has been so good that he shouldn’t use the plural,” Gunter Steiner added. ..
“He did very well. He didn’t take any damage. Mick had some accidents in the last few races and we need to do better.”
“On our side, we need to plan how we spend our money. We know exactly what we are doing with parts and money.”
“But all you can do with the driver is mostly to sit down and re-explain the big picture. Sometimes you have to take risks, but you take risks when you have the opportunity. At the moment, this is what FP3 does. You shouldn’t take risks. ”
