Haas is making good progress with its 2022 Formula One car which is being designed at the Ferrari factory in Maranello, according to team principal Guenther Steiner.
The new budget cap in Formula 1 saw the Italian side needing to reallocate some staff, and the close collaboration Haas enjoys saw some personnel seconded to the customer team, with Scuderia Ferrari setting up a bespoke facility at its Maranello headquarters. Those working for Haas have no access to Ferrari’s design office but Guenther Steiner, who visited the new base recently, is pleased with the work that is being done there ahead of next year’s new regulations.

At the same time, the Haas Team Principal shared his thoughts on the 2022 Ferrari power unit:
“Ferrari have done a lot of work on the ICE as well [not just the hybrid system]. I was with Gene Haas in Maranello before Monza and they showed us what they have done. How good it is always difficult to say. Even if their engine is good and the other engines are super good, they are still behind so I think they put the right amount of effort into making a better engine and next year they have to be equal to all the other engines out there or hopefully even better.” – Guenther Steiner concluded.
