Steiner believes Haas didn't make any mistakes during Mexican Grand Prix

Romain Grosjean finished behind Robert Kubica while Kevin Magnussen finished in P15. It was another weekend littered with poor results for Haas, but team boss Guenther Steiner believes the team got the maximum performance out of the car and claims they "didn't make any mistakes". 

When starting in P17 and P18, it's always going to be difficult for any team to make up ground. Add in Grosjean's troubles on the first lap which dropped him to last and the tasks become even harder. 12 months ago, Haas were pushing Renault for fourth place in the championship. With three races remaining in the 2019 F1 season, Haas looks likely to finish in ninth. 

Steiner admits it was a "disappointing race" for the team but believes the American outfit couldn't have improved. 

“Obviously it was a disappointing race for us. We got the best out that we could in terms of our performance this weekend. We didn’t make any mistakes or anything, there just wasn’t more performance in the car. Going into this weekend we knew this would likely happen," Steiner said. 

"We go away knowing that coming in here we were weak, and we go away weak. That doesn’t mean that we give up. We’ll try again in Austin where it’s a little bit of a more normal race track, and we’ll see if we can get a little bit more out than we did today.”
