Haas Formula 1 Team Principal Guenther Steiner is to release a new book in 2023 charting the fortunes of their 2022 season.

Appropriately titled Surviving the Drive, the book is the first account written by a serving team boss of what goes on throughout the season, and builds on Steiner's reputation from the Netflix show Drive to Survive.

2022 was a promising year for Haas as they clambered into the midfield after two seasons in the doldrums.

They finished a respectable eighth in the Constructors' as Kevin Magnussen returned to the team to partner Mick Schumacher, but Steiner still faced problems off-track.

In February, the team ripped up Nikita Mazepin's contract after the Russian invasion of Ukraine, given his family's close links to the Russian government, forcing Magnussen into a return after a year out.

Highlights included the Dane taking a shock pole in Brazil (for the Sprint race) and Schumacher's form, which eventually saw him lose his seat to Nico Hulkenberg for 2023.

"I don't think I could have picked a more attractive year than this one in terms of documenting some of the many things a team principal has to go through in Formula 1," Steiner explained of the upcoming release.

"I've never looked at keeping a diary before and while I like to look forward, it's been fun to look back at this year proofing this book and reflecting on the many highs and lows we encountered."
