Haas team principal Guenther Steiner has revealed that they may bring significant car updates later than scheduled.

Haas are yet to bring any upgrades to the VF-22 car. Steiner has stated that they will bring them at the French GP. However, the plans have changed and Haas will likely do it at the Hungarian GP.

“Maybe it will be Hungary. We took a step back because we wanted to check something else in the wind tunnel, but now we are full steam on in production for Hungary,” Steiner said.

“That is the aim. We try to better it, but I don’t know where we get to.”

Steiner hopes that the upgrades will help Haas improve performance.

“Hopefully it’s a big step performance wise. How it looks I don’t really care, but you will see a difference.”

Furthermore, Steiner has confirmed that Haas will switch to the development of the 2023 car after Hungary upgrades.

“We will shift to next year’s car. That’s it. No further upgrades.

“We are just stopping to make parts for this car. You always continue to develop and obviously, if you find something which on this car gives you a big advantage, then you do it.

“But we are not specifically working for this car on a big package.”
