Haas F1 unmoved over Gutierrez rumours

Haas boss Gunther Steiner will not say if Esteban Gutierrez is staying at the new American team for its second season in 2017.

At Spa, Steiner was asked about the fact that, when questioned by reporters, Gutierrez had replied somewhat cryptically that he will definitely still be on the grid next year.

But the Mexican would not say if he was talking about Haas.

“As I’ve already said, I do not want to participate in spreading rumours,” Haas team principal Steiner responded.

“What I will say is that we are calm because we do not have a problem with drivers. The announcement for next year will be done after some time, but what I don’t know is whether Esteban has negotiated somewhere else,” he added.

Meanwhile, with multiple teams set to try the controversial Halo concept at Spa and beyond, Steiner reported that Haas has no such plans to follow suit.

“No,” he answered, “I think we have to solve many other problems and all our resources are aimed at doing that, especially since the introduction of Halo has been postponed for a year.”
