Haas boss Guenther Steiner is hoping to avoid spending resources on Haas' 2021 car in order to focus on the regulation overhaul scheduled for F1 in 2022.

Steiner is hoping that the car Haas is using for the upcoming season, will not require any significant development after testing despite not taking advantage of the opportunity to build a new nose.

"We could have built a new nose, but we were too late," Steiner told Auto Motor Und Sport.

"The wind tunnel program had been shut down too long for us to have the nose ready before the deadline at the end of September."

The Haas boss goes on to state that while he does not believe any significant redevelopment is required to the cars, he warns that it could it be a possibility.

"But it can happen that we have to improve the 2021 car again if we discover during the test drives that we have made a mistake," he stated.

"That would be plan B. Actually, we don't want to use any more wind tunnel time for the 2021 car.

"We hope that things in the front midfield will be as close as in 2020 and that the teams involved will continue to develop and leave time for the 2022 car."
