Guenther Steiner won’t be worried about shattered wreckage today, as American-based racing team Haas qualified third for today’s race, the Canadian Grand Prix, with Kevin Magnussen and Mick Schumacher in fifth and sixth place, respectively. The Haas team manager is cognizant of the tasks that must be completed in today’s race.

“First of all, we need to finish because we didn’t do that in the last races. At least with one car, we didn’t. We need to finish and try to keep the positions,” said the Italian team principal of Haas.

Although rain is not anticipated for today’s race, Steiner stated that the cold and damp weather could work in Haas’ favour. “If it’s cold, it seems like we can get the tyres to work. In FP3, we couldn’t make the intermediate tyres work, we made changes to the car and it worked. I’m pretty happy for the whole team,” said Steiner.

Steiner stressed the need of being prepared and composed in order to become successful, and both the drivers demonstrated this today, which he praises. “I think just staying calm and executing, not making mistakes is why the whole team did a great job. The drivers knew what to do. We know that we aren’t bad in the wet just got it home with both cars this time,” added the team boss.

Today’s race would be a 70 laps race where the drivers will get to drive on a  4.361 km long track, the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Today is going to mark the 57th Formula One race to be held on this track.
