Nico Hulkenberg wants to see Haas prevent their "downer" Sundays, with the team having struggled to convert their qualifying performances into high points finishes.
The Haas driver qualified in eighth place for the Spanish Grand Prix, but dropped out of the top 10 at the end owing to poor tyre management.
Both Haas and Ferrari appeared to struggle during the race on any compound, with Hulkenberg confirming that they opted to stop earlier in Barcelona to try and contain their problems.
"We just hit really high [tyre] degradation," he told media, including RacingNews365.com.
"All race long, right after the start I was eaten up, just instantly ran into heavy graining on front and rear and just going backwards.
"We opted to stop early, but the trend continued even on Medium and Hard."

Hulkenberg: 'Downer' Sundays hard to cope with
Hulkenberg said the team has seen this trend throughout the season, with the Haas driver having only amassed six points so far in the Drivers' championship.
"That's the trend and the characteristic we've seen so far this year and we need to try balance it more between Saturday and Sunday," he said.
"Because whilst it's nice to bang out a nice qualifying, it always then raises expectation and then you get a downer on Sunday – which is not so easy to cope with."
