HAAS joined the F1 grid 2016 and, after scoring points on its own debut, finished eighth in the constructors’ championship at its first two seasons.
Inspired by Motorsport.com if HAAS was still building just how assertive it really is along with other teams, team principal Steiner said:”I think therefore when you stumble in the game you cannot only demand the respect.
“You’ve got to earn your respect. We’re putting a fantastic series on and consistently do what we say we’re going to really do.
“We are competitive out on track and behaving well for your sport and a fantastic inclusion to the game.
“[So] you are recognised more. But there is still a long way to go, as always the guy that wins can have the voice and we have got a long way to go to get there.”
Steiner told Motorsport.com that”I don’t value” annoying other teams, adding:”It’s part of what you’re doing.
“In the event you must create a cake, you will need to break eggs. You can not get it done without it. [But] I really don’t do intentionally. I actually don’t get up each afternoon [to do this ] however, you have to.
“It’s part of getting improved. It’s the same as getting the respect, be a pushover and also do things you will need to do.
“It’s part of their learning also. You’ve done all the steps, you have got the ability, and a next time you will be improved.
“You’ve got to start somewhere. And whoever is around, you focus on them!”
