Haas Team Principal Guenther Steiner has give his expectations for its 2024 car, ahead of the planned shift to a new concept at the United States Grand Prix.
The team has identified the problems that caused its VF-23 to be one of the cars that suffers the most tyre degradation in the field, with Kevin Magnussen believing it is one of the worst he's raced in F1.
Haas will soon become one of the last teams on the grid to make the switch to a Red Bull-inspired car concept, as a new spec version of the VF-23 will be introduced in its home race in Austin over the October 20-22 weekend.
Steiner's outfit stopped bringing updates to the current car midway through the season, after admitting to "facing reality" over what was described as a 'flawed concept.'

Steiner: We want to learn for 2024
Steiner believes it will be an important step for the team ahead of 2024 when speaking to media, including RacingNews365: "I don't know yet exactly what to expect. I would expect that you get better performance, but the main thing is to see what we do next year," he explained.
"Next year's car is a complete change in concept.
"With this year's car we couldn't do a compete change because there is some restrictions we have got, like the radiators and side-impact structure.
"But we go in the direction as much as we could, but it's more to learn and hopefully we get a more stable car.
"The car is very temperamental otherwise, downforce comes and goes.
"You need a stable car that in corners, in yaw, in steer, is just more consistent with those traits."
