Haas-chief relieves Him of responsibility in the møgsæson

It was not the drivers ' fault that Haas had a bad season in 2019, beating team boss Günther Steiner real.

2019 was a season to forget for Haas' Formula 1 team. Also for the team's Danish rider, Kevin Magnussen.

the Dane only got scraped 20 points together in the WORLD cup-the post and finished as number 16 out of the 20 drivers. Teamkammerat Romain Grosjean was the number 18 with only 8 points.

For comparison, Magnussen, number 9 in 2018, with 56 points, while Grosjean was 14th with 37 points.

Despite the almost endless series of disappointments through the year, it is also Magnussen and Grosjean, which in 2020 should sit behind the wheel of the Haas cars.

And it is the team manager Günther Steiner completely at ease.

- I do not believe that our not so good season in any way be attributed to them (drivers ed.), and that is why we continue with our kørerkonstellation, says Steiner to f1i.com.

- We must be honest and say that they could not do more with the car.

After being number 5 in the constructors ' WORLD championship position, in 2018, was Haas næstdårligst of the ten teams in motor sport's fuldblodsklasse in the year. The car acted simply bad through the whole year - especially in the races.

Magnussen and Grosjean also made it harder for each other a few times in the course of the season, as the two teamkammerater, which are also rivals ran into each other.

Günther Steiner spoke in large letters over to them a few times, but the episodes are parked in the garage for the team head.

- You can always do it better, when you are not running into each other, but they tried just too much at some times, says Steiner.

- I don't think, I can say that they have not delivered a good job this year.

the 2020 season, will start in his usual style in australian Melbourne. It happens in the middle of march.
