Haas to run upgraded car this weekend in Belgium!

Haas F1 boss Guenther Steiner says that Haas will be running the updated car that ran in Germany this weekend as the team are desperate for answers and points.

The American team have struggled all season with getting tyres up to temperature during the races, leading to drivers Kevin Mangussen and Romain Grosjean falling backwards through the field on Sundays.

Steiner told Pitpass.com"For Spa we will go with the upgraded car, which we ran at Hockenheim.

"We've learned quite a bit out of it and tried to improve the car by changing some of the components. Both cars will be the same spec, and hopefully we can still learn more about it."

Steiner went on to speak about development for Haas' 2020 challenger, in the hope the team can solve their problems by the end of the season to hit the ground running in Australia next year.

He added: "The focus has already switched, partly, to the 2020 car. We need to see what we can come up with in the wind tunnel, with the small developments we do there for the 2019 car, and if we bring any upgrade kits. We don't know yet."
