Guenther Steiner on Haas' tyre trouble

Haas have struggled with their tyres so far this season as they have not been able to get them up to temperature. Team boss Guenther Steiner is frustrated with the fact that they have a fast car but because of their issues with the tyres they have really struggled. 

"It's a question of who is fighting the most with it, and that's us," he told Ekstra Bladetnewspaper as quoted by GPFans. "It's disappointing because we have a good car," Steiner said.

"We should not be constantly talking about whether a tyre works. It's not interesting and it's not Formula 1 in my opinion," he said.

"'Did you get the tyre working? Yes, I'm quick'. 'My tyres didn't work, so I'm slow'," Steiner joked.

"We spend millions and millions of dollars on these cars but if the tyres are outside their window we cannot use them.

"Others make them work better, so we have to as well. And probably we will get it fixed. We were quick in testing and quick in Australia.

"But it's very serious. We know the cause and we must find out how to fix it," Steiner added.

"I don't just want to blame Pirelli. I also blame ourselves when others find better solutions. But basically we should not sit after a race and talk about whether the tyres worked or not," he said.
