Steiner claims Haas front wing ‘came alive’ in Japan

18 October 2016

Guenther Steiner, team principal of the Haas F1 Team, has revealed that the updated front wing first introduced in Singapore ‘came alive’ at Suzuka.

The new front wing, together with updated brake ducts, initially arrived at the Singapore Grand Prix however only the brake ducts remained for the race that weekend.

The front wing was subject to further testing in Malaysia however the US-based F1 outfit struggled to find the time to fine tune the car setup to suit the new front wings demands.

“The delay in getting it to work is like when you are at a grand prix and you have problems in FP1 and FP2 – you focus on trying to find out what the tire is doing and the data on the tire and basic things,” explained Steiner.

“We had problems in FP1 and FP2 in Singapore and Malaysia,” he added, “so we didn’t do a good job of finding out about the wing. But in Japan, we had good practice sessions and, sure enough, the wing came alive in Japan.”
