Haas facing costly repair bills

Haas boss Guenther Steiner told Channel 4: “At the moment, the problem is actually getting the parts made because we are so far behind with production now because we didn’t envisage making this many parts.

“The production is just the bottleneck at the moment. So we are trying to catch up, just staying alive.

“We had a front wing flown in [to Baku on Saturday] just to have a spare one here for [Sunday] – we had one but we didn’t have two. So it’s challenging.”

Martin Brundle on the porpoising problem

He said via Sky: "If it was something that was affecting everybody, then yes, [the regulations should change] on the grounds of safety, but you can see that some cars are absolutely fine, and others are struggling.

"Therefore, I think the emphasis is on the team to sort it out as opposed to changing the regulations. It's something that they're struggling with, it's not something that our drivers are complaining about.

"I think it would be unfair if there was a change just because they've missed the target."

Fittipaldi told VegasInsider: “George Russell is doing really well. I think he has enough experience in Formula One now.”

"That's another challenge for Lewis (Hamilton), because it's what I call, 'the young lion is on board'.”
