Hass boss, Guenther Steiner, has fate in the team to push for better results this weekend at the Styrian Grand Prix as they continue to trail the pack with 0 points on the board heading into Round 8.
The Team Principal continues to remain upbeat about their rookie lineup while they navigate the 2021 season – marking it as more of a practice run for Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin ahead of big changes for next season.
As we head to Austria the Italian boss began to reminisce about the team’s best result in 2018 when Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen landed their best-ever result with a fourth and fifth-place finish.
Steiner says there is rarely a moment on track when that memory doesn’t rear its head as a reminder of why he loves the sport so much;
“I think back every time we go out on the race track this year to keep motivated”, Guenther said.
“I’m sure we can go back, we did it once and we can repeat it but we just need a little bit of time. We’ve had a few tough years but what makes you suffer, makes you tougher.”
The fan-favourite Principal says he firmly believes the team has a bright and successful future ahead of them, even if it may take more time to get there.
“We will come back, it will take a little bit longer but for sure, finishing fourth and fifth in 2018 was our best result. When you know what is possible and you have experienced it, you know you can do it again”, he added.
Mick and Nikita return to the track tomorrow morning for Free Practice, ahead of the Styrian Grand Prix on Sunday, June 27.
