Steiner: No problem with Hülkenberg and Magnussen together in 2020 despite past

Haas have some decisions to make. Now Nico Hulkenberg is available, the American Formula 1 team might want to swap the German in for Romain Grosjean. But with Hulkenberg and Kevin Magnussen not having the greatest history, it might not be the best option. 

Guenther Steiner isn't worried about the history that those two drivers hold. Instead, he jokingly looks back on the two occasions when Grosjean and Magnussen collided on track during the current season. At Silverstone, the contact ruled both drivers out of the race. 

"We are running into each other even without history! We would manage. I don't think about that, it's not about [them], it's about the team. We are all grown-ups, this is a business," Steiner told Motorsport.com

"I'm sure you have colleagues you don't like to work with. It's a business, I see it like this. You need to be practical with this stuff. But that is not a thing which would influence what we are doing. That is their problem, not ours, should it happen."

Kevin Magnussen, who has been at Haas since the 2017 season, isn't bothered about the history between teammates. 

"Honestly, the teammate is the teammate. You have to accept them. With some, you get on, but you don't have to get on. Maybe it's better, I don't know. I don't think that would be a deal-breaker for me," Magnussen said.
