And why should we expect any great on-track
performance improvements from Haas this year?
By now Y’all have heard the shock news of Herr
Guenther’, whose actually Italian, nee Guenther Steiner’s “Dismissal” from
Haas. Since reportedly Steiner, who’s 58 and has been Team Principal since Haas’s
(2016) inception simply didn’t have His contract renewed after it expired…
As I’m wondering if Herr Guenther’, one of the “Stars”
of The Real Housewifes of F1, nee Drive to survive simply became too big for
His britches? And team owner Gene Haas didn’t like being “Overshadowed” by
As Ayao Komatsu, soon to turn 48 replaces
Steiner as Haas Team Principal. With the Japanese engineer having worked His
way up the F1 race engineering ranks beginning at BAR Honda. Becoming head of
Trackside Engineering at Haas in 2016, when following Romain Grosjean from Lotus.
While it’s worth noting that Komatsu holds a PHD in Vehicle dynamics…
Meanwhile, Haas’s Technical Director Simone Resta has also left Haas one month before the launch of the VF-24. Leaving me to wonder how Gene Haas plans to pull His continuously Back-marker F1 team up near the Midfield anytime soon?
