Steiner concedes Haas should've listened to their drivers more

Haas boss Guenther Steiner has admitted his team should have listened more to Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen whilst they were searching for a solution to their lack of race pace earlier in the year.

Despite starting the season with plenty of expectation, Haas have struggled only managing to beat Williams in the Constructors' Championship. There has been issues on and off the track, with the Rich Energy saga following them for most of the year away from racing. 

On the track, they've been unable to get their tyres to work come lights out which was ultimately down to an aero problem. The issues forced them to resort to using their Melbourne package and Steiner admits they should've listened to their drivers more.

"I don't want to go into the specifics of technical stuff, but we should have listened a little bit more to the drivers when they gave their opinion about what the car is doing and whatnot," Steiner said as quoted by

"And sometimes listen more to drivers than look at numbers.

"That's what we have to learn out of this. And now I think we need to get what drivers say correlated with what the numbers say and get an understanding so we can move forward.

"As I said, we would have done a lot different from Barcelona onwards."
