Guenther Steiner, the team manager for Haas F1, expressed his dissatisfaction with Danish driver Kevin Magnussen after an incident during the third free practice (FP3) at the Dutch Grand Prix.
Steiner's frustration stemmed from the fact that the mishap left the team with only one front wing, putting unnecessary pressure on the team ahead of Sunday's race.
Magnussen lost control of his car on a rain-soaked track and collided with the barrier at the exit of turn three.
The accident resulted in damage to the car's suspension and front wing. Nico Hulkenburg, Magnussen's teammate, had a similar incident during FP1 on Friday.
Steiner communicated his displeasure immediately after the crash via the team radio to Sky F1 commentators.
"I'm quite disappointed right now. He just lost grip on the cold tires. We only have one front wing left, and it's Nico's," Steiner stated according to Danish media Sportfokus.dk.
Before the weekend's Grand Prix, Haas confirmed that both Magnussen and Hulkenburg would continue with the team in 2024. Despite driving less competitive cars, both drivers have managed to score points this season. However, with only one front wing remaining, the team faces additional challenges.
