Round 17: United States Grand Prix
Circuit of the Americas, Austin - Texas
24-26 October 2021




You spoke of satisfaction that the team was able to execute accordingly when Mick progressed into Q2 qualifying last time out in Turkey. Can you detail that feeling a little more and how such a result makes an impact internally within the team after a long season with few on-track highlights?




“For me, I was obviously happy for Mick that he got it done, but for the whole team because as you mentioned, we’ve had very few on-track highlights, and having something like this assures you that we can do it – that we can execute when we get the opportunity.


I think this will have an impact in the next races for the team because they got some of the confidence back that they maybe lost a bit over the year and hopefully we can have another moment like this in 2021.”





While you’re set to put 2021 firmly behind you, the release of the 2022 provisional calendar allows you to look ahead.  What are you most looking forward to from next year’s slate of races and are you a fan of wrapping the racing up before December and therefore allowing a more prolonged off-season than in recent years?




“Firstly, I hope the pandemic will be history next year and we can actually execute the calendar as it is planned and we don’t have this changing around, which is a lot of work for not a lot of gain, I would say. It’s treading water all the time, which is needed to be done in circumstances like this and we fully support it but getting back to normality would be great to start off with.


Otherwise, the calendar looks good. Obviously, having Miami in there is great – a second race in the US – and finishing the season a little bit earlier is good for everybody. We have got the summer break and we have got a bit more time in the winter.


This year, down to the pandemic, we’re almost getting close to Christmas. A little bit longer in the winter is good for everybody to chill out before we get going again for 2023.”





The United States Grand Prix is obviously a home event for Haas F1 Team.  Having been denied the opportunity to compete at Circuit of the Americas last season due to the pandemic, just how much is the team looking forward to a return to Austin and what have been your highlights from past races there with Haas F1 team?  




“Austin has always been good to us. We’ve got a good fanbase here in the States and it’s getting bigger and bigger as Formula 1 grows in the US. We have Haas Hill in Austin, which has been sold out for weeks, if not months already, and it’s always great to go there.


Austin as a city and also as a racetrack, it’s just a good place and having missed out last year, I think the whole of Formula 1 is happy to be back in Austin and we look forward to it.



We have done some stuff with NASCAR there as Gene also owns a NASCAR team – Stewart-Haas Racing – which was a good success as we had Romain and Kevin drive that car with Tony Stewart, who is a legend around there. So, all in all, I’m really happy to go there, and to the weekend.”




The team recently hosted Team USA Scholarship winners Andre Castro and Max Esterson in Banbury – the young drivers enjoying a tour of the facility and meeting team personnel before they compete for Team USA in the Formula Ford Festival and Walter Hayes Trophy in England. Do you feel it is important to engage with young drivers and provide an insight into how an F1 team operates, and what was your impression of Andre and Max as possibly two aspiring F1 talents?


“For us, being the only American Formula 1 team, to at least show the support we give to these young talents from the United States away from home, in England, was important. We did our best to show them what is needed in Formula 1 because if you get exposed to it from a young age, you can make a plan of what you want to do and what not to do with your life.


They came over, had a tour, spoke with a few engineers and I had a talk with them. They’re both nice guys so let’s see what they do competition-wise in the next months when they’re both in England to compete for the Formula Ford Festival and the Walter Hayes Trophy. We wish them good luck and hopefully one of them makes it into Formula 1, maybe both of them.”
