Formula 1: THIS is what the Haas decision depends on

Not all cockpits in Formula 1 are occupied yet. Several teams take a lot of time – including Haas, Mick Schumacher’s team. Schumi Jr.’s contract expires at the end of the season, but Steiner again left open whether he would receive a new working paper from the racing team.

No decision has been made yet, Steiner explained on RTL. There are many possible candidates. “Most drivers with a super license are on the list,” says Steiner. He speaks a lot with team owner Gene Haas, but a trend cannot yet be foreseen.

Much more is the decision for 2023, a choice between young and experienced drivers. “What do we want as a team for the future? What does the team do better? What is the best way, with which driver?” – at Haas, these questions first have to be answered, according to Steiner.

One candidate at Haas is Nico Hulkenberg. The South Tyrolean confirmed this on RTL: “Nico is on the list.” He brings a lot of experience with him – even if he has not raced much in the past two years, Steiner explains.
