Haas was the only F1 team that failed to score points across the 22 races in 2021.

The American outfit did not develop its car last season as it's pinning its hopes on the major regulation change in 2022.

Haas is hopeful of returning to the midfield after two disappointing years running at the back of the field.

Reflecting on the 2021 campaign, team principal Steiner praised his crew for their never give up attitude.

"I'm quite impressed how the guys kept on going,” Steiner said. "Look at the results, in the end, there was never a giving up, you know, we knew where we end up, but we always keep fighting. Even if you are a tenth behind, you try to make it half a tenth and that's thanks to the guys.

"And they really kept on fighting because also there is, I would say, about 60% of the people which are here are here from the beginning of the team, so they know we can do it. And everybody wants to come back to go and get points again, fight in the midfield.”

Steiner revealed the team’s attitude meat that he doesn’t have to continually reassure them.

"I wouldn't say it was easy, but I've got a group of people around me close to me who know what we are doing, you know, keep always involved and everybody does his job to get their own people which work for them going," he explained. “That is what you need to do.

“[There] is no point to go out there every race weekend and tell them how great everything will be because they don't believe you after a while, they are smart people, you know, they just need to see what you do in the back counts.

"And we never gave up, nobody in the team gave up ever. So that is the most important, and that keeps the team going. I don't have to keep it going. It keeps it going with this attitude."
