Gunther Steiner has shed light on what he thinks about the 2023 F1 calendar and has indicated that the unprecedented number of races for next year has stemmed from the demand for the sport.

However, since the 2023 calendar has come out it has been criticized massively for the impractical division of races throughout the globe and because of the sustainability issue.

While a certain group of people is not happy with next year’s calendar, Genther Steiner is not too bummed by it and while talking about the number of races said, “But apparently there is a demand for it.”

The fact that fans like to watch what we do is of course the biggest compliment they can give, we have to work hard to make them happy.”

The Haas F1 Team has its headquarters in Kannapolis, North Carolina, United States, and Guenther Steiner is extremely pleased to have got the opportunity of racing in front of home fans thrice next year.

While talking about the same, Steiner added, “I think the three American Grands Prix are coming at the right time, the sport is already very popular there, but it is currently becoming even more so. It’s a good thing that there will be more races there.”

America currently has got two races with Austin being on the calendar since 2012 and Miami which was added this year. Las Vegas is going to be the latest venue where a race is going to be held.

Guenther Steiner further adds, “Each race has its own unique things and they don’t copy each other, I’m okay with that. America is a very big country. They don’t get in each other’s way. I already know two of the three races and I expect that Las Vegas will also put on a great show.”
