Why Haas are prepared for Baku disappointment

Haas team principal Guenther Steiner says the team are prepared for another disappointing showing at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix as they continue to struggle with tyres. Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean have qualified in the top 10 at all three races this year, but the Dane's sixth-place finish in Melbourne is their only points-score.

While one-lap pace is clearly no concern for the American team, thy have struggled badly with race pace.

Steiner hopes the issue is track-specific, but says the Baku Street Circuit could be the worse they've visited yet.

"We just need to find a solution to this problem because we didn't have this obviously in winter testing, because the [Barcelona] track is completely different to tracks like Bahrain and China and Baku," he said.

"And Baku is even worse. I'm readying myself for the disappointment.

"I hope we find something before Baku, because in these race tracks we cannot get energy into the tyre.

"I think it's not the concept, because a concept we need to take and change the whole car.

"We need to find a solution. But whatever it is, don't call it a concept [problem].

"It's a combination. It will be aero works, vehicle dynamics and the design office. Everybody works together on it. There is not one group who works on it and tells the other what to do, that would be too easy."
