No driver favouritism at Haas

NEWS STORY
24/06/2016

Whilst many perceive Romain Grosjean, now in his fifth season in F1, as lead driver at Haas, team principal Guenther Steiner insists this is not the case and that both the Frenchman and teammate Esteban Gutierrez are seen as equals.

"Esteban was not in an F1 car for one year, and that does not help, but he also was pretty unlucky at the first couple of races," the Italian told the official F1 website, in reaction to the perception that the Mexican was number two.

"On the material side both drivers have always been treated equally," he added, "the same car, the same equipment, and both had the same chances.

"There was probably the impression from the outside that Romain was our number-one driver because he is older and has more experience. But inside the team we don't have any favouritism.

"We want both drivers to be in the points, yes, but if it is only one we don't care who it is."
