Steiner: 'Good results from Grosjean are not going to give any certainty for 2021'

Haas' lineup for 2021 will most likely change. With the up-and-coming Ferrar juniors looking for a seat for next year and the poor performance of the current drivers, there are plenty of reasons for Guenther Steiner to change the team. 

Although Grosjean managed to score two points at the Nürburgring with a ninth place, nothing is certain given his recent struggles. "We shouldn't look at it race by race. We need to make a decision for the long term and then it's important not to be distracted by recent results," Steiner explained to Motorsport.com.

Which of the ten?

Earlier he announced that there is a shortlist of ten drivers who have a chance of winning a spot for 2021. These include drivers such as Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg, but also current juniors such as Nikita Mazepin and Mick Schumacher. "There is little chance that a decision will be made soon," Steiner added.

"We need to think about how we can perform better as a team and with which drivers we want to do that for the coming years". That better performance is already happening, because Grosjean's points bring the team closer to eighth place. "That will motivate everyone. We've finally had a bit of fun this weekend."
