Australian Grand Prix
Albert Park, Melbourne
31 March - April 2nd 2023

    

Guenther Steiner – Team Principal:



The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix delivered our first point of the season, with Kevin coming home in 10th and Nico in 12th. How does it feel to reach that first target and how does it motivate the team in the early stage of the season?



“This year we started off with a clear target in mind to better our position in the Constructors’ Championship from last year. Obviously, we didn’t score in Bahrain but as we all found out there are four very strong teams now in Formula 1 and the points that are up for grabs are not many.


In Bahrain, we didn’t score but now we’ve scored one point in Saudi Arabia, and it was done pretty well. By saying that, I mean we didn’t luck into the point, we fought well for it. Getting points is the biggest motivation for the team, if you get points the team is happy and motivated to get up and go to the next race.”





MoneyGram Haas F1 Team is currently P7 in the Constructors’ Championship after the opening two rounds. What does that tell you about the pecking order this season and knowing every point may prove crucial, how do you approach the next few races before substantial upgrades come in to play?



“As we’ve discussed, there are only a few points available for the midfield teams and everyone is in that midfield, from P6 down it’s all midfield, there is nobody behind. We must take every opportunity.


I think we are in the midfield, the upper end of it, but every race could see a change where each team is. The only thing to do at the moment is to work hard and try not to make mistakes because they will cost dearly.”





The return of Australian Grand Prix last season after an enforced absence was welcomed by the entire paddock. Confirmed as a race location until at least 2035, what does Melbourne bring to Formula 1 and why is it a place everyone loves to come back to?



“Everybody likes coming to Melbourne. It’s a combination of things, it’s the wonderful people of Australia who always give us a big welcome, it’s the race track which is in the city, but it isn’t a street race it’s a race track, and it’s the history.


It’s the welcome we’re given – people really appreciate us being there and it’s very simple, we all love to go there.”






Melbourne played host to Haas’ very first race back in 2016. Seven seasons later and only a few races away from our 150th Grand Prix – does it feel significant when the team visits?





“I will never forget our first race in 2016 – getting to Australia and being confronted with all the issues we had because it’s still the first race for a team, and it’s very difficult for a new team in Formula 1.

For us scoring points, every time I go there I remember that moment and for the team and people who were there on the first day, they still remember it. For us it’s always a great way to come back to that place and remember good memories.”
