Steiner on sprint races: F1 needs to take risks to improve

The Haas boss has cited the need for Formula 1 to modernise in light of the recent Sprint Qualifying announcement. But does he believe the move will be a success?

Haas team principal Guenther Steiner has stated that F1 needs to take risks in order to evolve in the wake of sport bosses formally introducing sprint qualifying.

The new weekend format is set to put more pressure on teams, as a short Saturday race will decide the grid on Sunday. However, in spite of the extra stress it places on team bosses, the German thinks the sport has to be free to take chances.

"In general, I think everything is evolving in the world, that we need to stay current, you know, and to stay current we need to do new things, and we need to try them," Steiner told RacingNews365 and selected members of the media.

"If they work fine. If they don't work that's fine as well, we just don't do them anymore. But we need to keep on developing the sport because otherwise, at some stage, it is like, oh, its the same sport which it was 30 years ago.

"These things don't mean that we are changing the DNA of the sport. We're just modifying it, you know, every sport changed a little bit all the time because society changes, the demands of the people change in terms of what they want to see. So I think it's a good thing."

While Steiner is largely in favor of trying the new format, he admits it most certainly represents a risk for all parties involved.

"It comes with the risk. I mean, it's more that the accident is the cost of this because its never easy to get things together in a free practice session. Obviously there is some risk with that one, you know, but I think we need to take some risks, nothing's for free," Steiner adds.

"If you want to improve something, but not take any risks or make the business better, I mean, that's difficult to do, or you need to get lucky. So I think we are prepared to take that risk."
