Haas team boss Guenther Steiner has confirmed the future of Haas is secure and reaffirmed the decision to focus entirely on the 2022 F1 season when new regulations are introduced.
The team have run a new livery this year which reflects the arrival of Uralkali, the company owned by Nikita Mazepin’s father Dmitry, as their title sponsor.
"I think I can say the team is secure and we are fine", Steiner told In The FastLane. "We have got a long term commitment from Gene Haas to Formula 1.
"Our finances are good, we found ways to cross that bridge so we are really happy with that. For 2022, we have been developing since beginning of February. The guys are working all the time just to get a good car.
"I don't know where we end up but I'm convinced that we will be in a good position again."
Steiner explained how the COVID-19 pandemic caused major problems for Haas which is why he is confident the team can bounce back next year.
"We're making good steps forward in the wind tunnel. Last year we were in a crisis more than. A lot of people were furloughed and we will build up that complete engineering team again
"People are joining us from Ferrari and that gives you confidence because otherwise how can you be confident if you're like last year?
"We did a lot of changes. We started to rebuild the team in December and got going again in January so that is where my confidence comes from."
