In brief

Steiner – Not getting to thank Haas team before departing “stung”

Guenther Steiner, who was team principal of the Haas F1 team for its first eight seasons before owner Gene Haas opted not to extend his contract for 2024, says he wishes he had the opportunity to thank all his former colleagues before leaving the team.

Speaking at the Autosport International show, Steiner admitted that it was unfortunate he was not able to speak with the whole team before departing.

“Yeah, it stung, but they all know me and they all know that I appreciate what they did,” he said. “It’s always best to say it to them, it would be nice to say, ‘hey guys, thanks for what you did for the team.’

“I would just like to thank all the team members, which I couldn’t give a proper goodbye to when I left, so I’ll do it this way. And I want to say also thank you to all the fans who supported us while I was there.”

Barnard dominates FRMEC opener

Taylor Barnard dominated the opening race of the Formula Regional Middle East Championship at the Yas Marina circuit, yesterday, leading from pole position to win by almost five seconds.

Barnard, who finished runner-up in the FRMEC last season and won a single race in last year’s F3 championship, led home Ferrari academy driver Tuukka Taponen in Saturday’s opening round, with Martin Stenshorne completing the podium in third. Races two and three will take place today.
