Haas team principal Guenther Steiner spoke about his expectations from Kevin Magnussen and Mick Schumacher in the Sprint at Interlagos.

Magnussen took his and Haas’ maiden F1 pole position at Interlagos on Friday. However, Schumacher will start Saturday’s Sprint from the back of the grid.

When asked by Sky Sports whether Magnussen could keep his opponents behind, Steiner joked: “I think now you’re getting a little bit too optimistic!

“24 laps [to] keep everybody behind will be difficult, but I’m happy with points. We don’t need to win the race.

“If we win, I’m more than happy, but it would be very unrealistic to think that.

“As long as we stay in the points, we are happy.”

Steiner believes that Schumacher needs to overtake as many opponents as possible to secure a better starting spot for Sunday’s race.

“I think he needs to try to get as [many] positions as possible to start good on Sunday.

“There [are] more points at play on Sunday. [In qualifying] when he went out, I think he was a little bit too hesitant to put a lap down because we just changed to dry tires.”
