The Austrian Grand Prix brought an end to a long triple-header for the Uralkali Haas F1 Team, Mick Schumacher finished in eighteenth and Nikita Mazepin in nineteenth at the second race at the Red Bull Ring.
Despite an early collision with Esteban Ocon, Schumacher had a quiet grand prix with very little action but still managed to outperform team-mate Mazepin. Mazepin too had a lonely race but was awarded a thirty-second time penalty and had three points added to his licence, after failing to slow down under double-waved yellow flags on the final lap.
Uralkali Haas Team Principal Guenther Steiner who can see just how much both of his drivers are learning, is looking forward to a short break before the next grand prix.
“It’s the end of our first triple-header this year – so, I think everybody’s ready to go home and get a little break before we get ready for the next race. We performed well as a team throughout this series of races, and obviously we’ve got a few more triple-headers coming this season.
“We’ll be well prepared, but it is tiring once you’re into them. From today’s race we had the result we expected. Both guys put in a solid performance, there’s just not a lot more in it for us at the moment. The learning is continuous, and the drivers are getting better.”
