Haas ready for first ever pit-stop

Date published: March 30 2016

Despite finishing sixth at the Australian Grand Prix, Team Haas’ Romain Grosjean and Esteban Gutierrez have yet to make a pit-stop in an official race.

Gutierrez retired early in Melbourne due to an accident with Fernando Alonso, while Grosjean changed his tyres during the red flag incident involving his teammate.

However, Team Principal Geunther Steiner explained that they had no issues with their pit crew not being able to perform any pit-stops in Australia but has no doubt that they will be ready for the Bahrain Grand Prix this weekend.

"We didn't complain that we didn't have to do a pit stop in Australia, but we will have to do it in Bahrain, for sure," Steiner told Haas' website.

"The focus will be on completing pit stops this weekend so the team goes into the race confident that they have trained properly.

"We are not being arrogant about our early success and we will have our races where we will underperform."
