Haas team principal Guenther Steiner has revealed that his rookie drivers were under the impression that “they know it all” when it comes to F1.

Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin are starting to understand how much there actually is to Formula 1 than what they previously imagined.

“There’s always room for improvement in all of us, I think,” he said.

“They are improving and as I always said in the beginning of the year, at some stage, they will actually realize how little did they know when they started F1 in Bahrain this year.

“I don’t know when that is coming, but there is normally a moment when you get to it, when you’re learning it, when you’re young.”

Vast difference between Bahrain and now

Steiner also went on to suggest that the duo have come a long way since their debut in Bahrain.

“For sure in Bahrain, they thought they know it all, and then 10 races later they’ll say ‘wow, how little did I know?’,” he stated.

“And the bigger the surprise, that means the more you learned in the 10 races. You just realise how different it is compared to what you thought it would be,” he said.

The duo have made good progress

Steiner also revealed that the young drivers have shown significant improvement compared to when they started out.

“There is always room to improve and I think we have got still a way to go,” he continued.

“Both have got a little bit of a disadvantage that they have nobody experienced to judge against. It maybe makes the learning tougher but you learn more,” he concluded.
