Guenther Steiner’s Haas seems to have been struggling with reliability issues, which has costed them a bagful of points. We all know that Haas doesn’t develop its own engine, Ferrari delivers it to them and takes a big fat cheque in return. Just like Haas, the parent engine company has had problems of their own which has forced both the drivers to retire out of multiple races, in turn handing the initiative to Red Bull.

Charles Leclerc was in comfortable lead of the championship but his position has completely changed in the matter of four races. It all started in Spain when the Monegasque driver was in complete control before having to pit due to a power unit issues. The same was the case in Baku. As the power unit was damaged beyond repair, Ferrari had to provide him with a new one which compelled him to take a grid penalty in Canada.

But, Ferrari isn’t the only team paying for its inability to develop a reliable engine, teams powered by Ferrari have also faced the brunt of it. Haas made a brilliant start to the season but everything has come crashing down ever since their reliability concerns crept in. Both Mick Schumacher and Kevin Magnussen have found themselves in points scoring positions but have had to disappointingly retire out of multiple races due to power unit issues.

This is definitely become a cause of concern for Guenther Steiner, who doesn’t have a clue as to why it is happening. The German said, “If he [Mattia Binotto, team principal] had explanations then he would have fixed the problems already.”

They are looking into it because as disappointing as it is for us, it’s maybe even more for them because they are fighting for the championship. I don’t even know what broke on our car [in Baku].”

“It’s one of the things you don’t put a lot of energy into wanting to know because even if I know, I can’t do anything about it anyway.”

This happened with Renault a few years ago when Red Bull decided to part way due to the fact that they couldn’t deliver a reliable engine. Therefore, Ferrari needs to get on top of their issues before Haas does the same and puts a big financial dent in their armory.
