“It was hard in the first year in NASCAR, said gene Haas. — From the moment we started, in 2002, almost six years, we were complete outsiders. Then competition among the teams and drivers was very high.
However, in Formula 1, we tried not to make those mistakes that hurt us in the beginning in NASCAR. The important thing is that we immediately saw what works and what not.”
On the one hand, we didn’t have to assemble a team again, we had mechanics, trucks and the rest of the infrastructure — continued Haas. On the other — we had little time to prepare-plus has introduced new regulations.
I think the upcoming season will be not much easier than the last, however, thanks to the experience we need to achieve a better result”.
