Steiner reflects on future in F1: It's very demanding

Having been at the helm of the Haas F1 team since their arrival into the sport, Guenther Steiner has explained how he feels about his future in Formula 1.

Haas Team Principal Guenther Steiner has been reflecting on what his future in Formula 1 holds. Steiner has been at the helm of the American squad since their arrival into F1 in 2016, with the team going through many ups and downs in the years since. However, when asked about how long he expects to stay in the sport, Steiner insisted that he does not look too far ahead. "I don't have long-term plans," Steiner told the F1 Nation podcast. "I don't want to achieve something [specific]. Obviously, I want to achieve success with Haas, but I'm not [always] looking forward. "In the moment, I'm comfortable. I think Gene [Haas] is comfortable with me – I hope, anyway! He didn't tell me any different so, on that side, I should be okay."

Steiner: I'm in a good place

Despite this, Steiner acknowledges that the demands of Formula 1 mean that there will eventually be a time where he wants to step back. "It's very demanding for your body and for your mind, and there is a point where everybody has to take a step back, and that will come for me as well," the Italian said. "But in the moment, I'm in a good place. I love what I do, so I keep on doing it. "There will be the moment [where I eventually say], 'I need to take a step back', because it's getting too much maybe, physically, mentally, whatever. But in the moment, I'm in a good place. "I have no big plans to say now, 'I'm stopping in three years'. One day I will say, 'I'm not going to do this anymore', and that is when Guenther will stop."
