Steiner repeats to Marko: 'Then we won't go in because the car will be destroyed'

Haas F1 team boss Guenther Steiner agrees with Red Bull Racing advisor Helmut Marko. The Italian team boss is unhappy with the sausage kerbs at Paul Ricard and is hoping for a solution to the problem.

Haas hasn't done any damage yet

There is a lot of concern about the sausage kerbs that are in Paul Ricard. The kerbs on the outside of turn 2 cause a lot of damage to the cars. Max Verstappen already lost a part of his wing end plate.

Steiner is also not happy with the high kerbs on the outside of the second corner, but so far the Haas team has not recorded any damage. "Luckily we didn't drive over it. We told our guys that if they drove over it, the car could be damaged," explains the Italian at Motorsport-Total.com.

Sandwich kerbs far from ideal

"We shouldn't have kerbs that destroy cars," says Steiner who then repeats a comment made by Helmut Marko: "Should we put walls around the track? Then we definitely don't go in, because then the car is completely destroyed." According to Steiner, there are plenty of examples where you can go off the track, lose time, but not damage the car. "That's how it's supposed to be."
