GUENTHER STEINER,
Rich Energy Haas F1, Team Principal




One thousand grands prix – that’s quite a number. From May 1950 at Silverstone to April 2019 in China, Formula One has seen an incredible transformation. What’s it like to be a part of this sport and a participant in such a milestone event?




“It’s an honor for Rich Energy Haas F1 Team to be a part of it. We’re the youngest team in the sport, and to be here when the sport reaches such a milestone, it’s an honor. Formula One is one of the biggest global sports. It’s been there a long time, so we should celebrate this.”





What was it about Formula One that first made you a fan of the sport, and how old were you when you began following Formula One?




“I think I was around seven when I started watching Formula One. It was all about the noise and the speed, at the time. The cars were very cool. Throughout my career, I always kept an eye on Formula One, and then I was eventually able to be a part of it.”





Rich Energy Haas F1 Team is still the youngest team in Formula One, and the Chinese Grand Prix marks just its 65th grand prix. Yet in just four years, the team is battling at the top of the midfield with the Formula One establishment that has decades more experience. How are you doing it?




“There’s no big secret. We’ve got a good team of people and they’re very dedicated. They work hard. That’s how we’re doing it. We always try to do the best with what we’ve got. We all like to be doing what we’re doing. We enjoy it, and that’s why we can achieve the results.”




What’s your reaction when people refer to Rich Energy Haas F1 Team as a satellite team to Scuderia Ferrari?




“I don’t really care. Some of the people that say that, I don’t really know what they mean by it. I think they don’t know what they mean with it. It’s normally the people that cannot understand why we’re doing such a good job. They just say we’re copying Ferrari. There are clearly written rules – what you can and can’t do – and we do everything to the rulebook. I don’t really care if they have a bad opinion about us.”




Do you think there would be as much talk about satellite teams if Rich Energy Haas F1 Team was at the bottom of the midfield instead of the top?



“Nobody would care if we were at the bottom. Everybody would be happy. That’s what everyone was expecting. That’s where they thought we would be when we got into Formula One. It’s developed over the years with people getting more critical. It goes hand-in-hand with our classifications. After a while, you get used to it. You live with it and don’t care.”





In each year of is existence, Rich Energy Haas F1 Team has become better – more efficient, more polished – and it has resulted in a faster racecar. Is the Haas VF-19 the best racecar the team has produced?




“I would say so, but not only the car, the team is getting better. That’s normal, as you learn over time. The only thing you cannot buy is time. You have to give yourself time to get better, so that’s what we’re trying to do. As long as we keep on improving, we’ll be good.”




What makes the Haas VF-19 so good, and how do you see it performing at Shanghai?



“It’s a good car, but we still need to find where we really are. It looks like we’re in the top group of the midfield. Obviously, with the new regulations a lot of things changed. It’s an evolution. We used what was good on the previous car – we didn’t reinvent it – but we adapted it in a very good way to the new rules. Everyone did a very good job over the winter. I expect us to still be in the upper midfield in Shanghai.”
