Former racer Toro Rosso Sebastien Bourdais gave his opinion regarding the statements of the head of Haas Guenter Steiner that in the United States no riders are ready for performances in Formula 1.
The words of the Austrian Manager provoked a strong reaction in the us Motorsport community, but the four-time ChampCar champion believes that there is nothing surprising in this statement.
“How can you drop riders of their nationality?” In the US offended by the Haas team
“The participants of the Formula 1 live in their separate world. Reputation beyond this world means nothing to them. You know how some refer to the IndyCar racers. Of course, my failure in F1 didn’t help the Americans, as well as the bad performance of Alex Zanardi to me, – quotes Bourdais to the publication Motorsport-Total. – I understand that the pilots IndyCar took this statement as a personal insult and I think it is unfair. But where do you see justice in F1? This has never happened.
Of course, F1 is the pinnacle of Motorsport, but we must respect the desire and pursuit of the other racers to try their hand at this championship.”
