Steiner: Too little racing more damaging than no racing at all

Steiner: Too little racing more damaging than no racing at all

Haas team principal Guenther Steiner has said that 15 races 'seems to be the magic number' for making the 2020 Formula 1 season 'economically' viable.

Speaking on the official F1 Nation podcast, Steiner said that it's important that racing in 2020 makes economic sense, the Haas boss outlining why a drastically shortened calendar could be worse than not racing at all.

“If you don’t go racing, I think we can survive,” Steiner said. “I think the worst of all would be if we’ve got only eight races because then you race, spend a lot of money, but you have got little income.

“And if you don’t race you don’t spend your money as you don’t go to races and you don’t need car parts."

Announced as the first cost saving measure of the pandemic, teams will race their 2020 machinery for in both the current season, and in '21.

The radical new aerodynamic regulations have been pushed back by a single year to '22, a move which, in theory, will save teams money on R&D across the period.

“The car is frozen for next year, so I hope the plan works that we go to 15 races, that seems to be the magic number for getting it economically [viable], the 15 races, so hopefully we get that one done.
