The head of the Haas F1 Gunther Steiner praised Ferrari for its excellent powerplant for the season 2017.
Ferrari has completely changed the design of the power unit in the light of changing regulations, but this did not stop the engine of the Italian manufacturer to show their best side during the first block of pre-season tests in Barcelona.
“The engine and gearbox work perfectly – quoted Steiner AUTOSPORT.com. – We spent an almost perfect tests on the same engine – we so never and has not changed.
Yes, twice we have had problems with electronics, but it was the fault of the software – nothing major. In my opinion, Ferrari did a fantastic job on this power plant.
The engine is brand new, and the fact that it is so reliable from the outset, can not but rejoice. If you look at other manufacturers, in the work which far from stupid employees, they have had problems. I think that Ferrari is seriously added in comparison with last year, and it’s very good.
As for Haas, I think we took a step forward, but it is still difficult to talk about how good we are.
We are satisfied with his work, but in Haas do not know how serious progress achieved by our competitors.
The results of the tests difficult to characterize. Of course, we can draw some conclusions from the results on the basis of what tires work for certain teams, but we don’t know how much fuel filled in tanks.
Overall we are confident that we are in the middle of the peloton. But it is difficult to say whether we are at the head of the middle tier or close it.”
