Guenther Steiner says it is unlikely that Haas will recruit a rookie driver ahead of the 2020 Formula 1 campaign should Romain Grosjean or Kevin Magnussen leave, as it would be a risky move when the team is performing poorly.
It hasn’t been a vintage season for the American outfit, as not only are they second-last in the constructors’ championship, but they have had to contend with numerous on-track spats between their two drivers Grosjean and Magnussen, with them actually colliding more than once.
With form so poor, speculation is mounting that Grosjean in particular could be shown the door, but if he is, Steiner claims they won’t try and recruit any young wonderkids.
