Steiner delighted: Maybe we are even ahead

Ferrari clearly has a better engine this season than last season. Where the engine in 2020 was a problem for the Italian team, Ferrari is doing much better now. Günther Steiner, team principal at Haas, is very happy with that.

The Haas cars are fitted with a Ferrari engine again this season. The team has noticed that the Italians have made a step forward. "I don't know the exact figures, but the difference between the different engines is very small", Steiner tells "It's hard to say who has a little more and who has a little less power. But I think we're there."

Steiner argues that Ferrari's power unit has caught up with the other teams. "Maybe we're even ahead of some of the other power sources," said Steiner, who doesn't yet dare to look far ahead. "Everyone has to change something and practically redevelop important things. I don't know who will be at the front next. But I know that at Ferrari they have been working on the powerplant for next year for a while. So hopefully Ferrari will be at the front."

Haas still without points

The performances of Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin are disappointing for now. Both drivers failed to score in Bahrain and Imola. Mazepin didn't even finish the opening race. In a little over a week, they have another chance at the Portuguese GP.
