Director Haas Gunther Steiner was pleased with the beginning of the racing weekend of the Grand Prix of Bahrain for the us team and hopes that Sunday will be able to compete for points.
“A good day for the team, – quotes the Steiner F1i. – Of course, it was the best Friday for us since the beginning of the season. In both sessions we have fulfilled the planned program. It seems that our machine is fast enough to compete for points. Let’s see what we can improve, and on Saturday will continue to work”.
Romain Grosjean showed in the first and second free practice sessions for the ninth time.
“A very good day, – said the Frenchman. – It was very hot – the first time this year we were in such weather conditions.
We need to continue to work on the car. On long series of circles, the load on the tires is very serious. The qualifying round is just one shot, and piloting a pleasure.
On Saturday we have much to do. I hope we will be able to add”.
The second Haas driver Kevin Magnussen in the first training session was only 16-m, but the second was able to climb to 11th place.
“Quite a decent day. By Saturday we need to think about several interesting aspects, but in General, all good,” said the Dane.
