Haas Team Principal Guenther Steiner has given his thoughts on tying several drivers to their vacant 2023 seat..
As things stand, Kevin Magnussen He is their only confirmed driver for next season, with a number of names touted as potential teammates for the Danish driver.
In fact, Mick Schumacher He is currently the driver in the opposite garage but his contract with the team ran out at the end of the campaign, and Steiner called him ’50/50 as to whether Mick sticks with him for 2023.
Speaking in an interview with RTLSteiner discussed a number of possible Haas leadership options next year, and said there was no need to rush into a decision on Schumacher or anyone else:
“You put yourself under pressure and we don’t need it, we just play against ourselves. We don’t really have any pressure at all, everyone else has time pressure, but we don’t.
“That’s an advantage we don’t want to take away from us.”

While Steiner says Haas is in no hurry to make a decision, he also discussed it Daniel Ricciardosituation, with the Australian dollar currently out of Formula 1 at the end of the year after he and McLaren agreed to call it quits.
Ricciardo has been linked with a move to Haas, but Steiner says he’ll wait to see if Daniel is interested in a move before making a serious play to sign him:
“In his case, Daniel first has to decide for himself what to do. It makes no sense to convince him to do something, he has to decide for himself.
“If he feels like it, he’ll definitely call, otherwise he’ll probably say I’m taking a vacation or something.”
finally, Nico Hulkenberg He is one of the drivers closely associated with the takeover from Schumacher at Haas, as he believed he and Steiner already had a positive relationship and that the team would like to add another experienced driver to their squad.
There have been feuds between ‘The Hulk’ and Magnussen in the past, although 2017 in Hungary saw the Dane telling the German what he could do in no uncertain terms after he had an accident.
That’s the water under the bridge now, although they seem to be putting that behind, after they both spoke and joked about it earlier this year, and Steiner said he felt ‘fans would love it’ if the duo joined next season. .
