Gunther Steiner, head of the structure, came out quickly to deny and strengthened his confidence with Ferraridespite poor performance.
Steiner believes that abandoning at this moment Ferrari it would be a bad image for the team, especially in this time of crisis for both. «I believe in loyalty, just like Gene Haas, team owner. They were instrumental in bringing us here, and they did a good job of doing it, ”Steiner said.
“Ferrari will recover”
For the head of the American structure, the crisis in Ferrari it will be temporary. «Now they are in difficulty, but I think it will be hopefully in the short term, and they will come out of it. They always recovered. So leaving at the first opportunity, when you come across an obstacle along the way, I think it’s not very ethical, because without them we wouldn’t be here, ”he continued.
However, the head of Haas He assured that they would not abandon the idea of changing the power unit, although it is unlikely. “Obviously we need to see other opportunities as well, but other opportunities are very difficult for us because we have a part of our infrastructure in Italy. We would have to move everything to England, and that would not be free.
