Steiner can't decide between Grosjean or Hulkenberg

12th September 2019, 14:58 by Chris Rivers

Haas boss Guenther Steiner claims it isn't easy deciding between Romain Grosjean and Nico Hulkenberg for a driver spot for 2020.

The American outfit have already decided that Kevin Magnussen will keep his seat for the next Formula 1 season, the Dane having collected 18 of the team's 26 points this year.

In what has turned out to be a difficult campaign for Haas, Magnussen's current team mate Grosjean has failed to impress and is in danger of his four-year association with the team coming to an end.

With Renault having already confirmed they won't be keeping on Hulkenberg for next season, replacing him with Esteban Ocon, the German is an interesting option on the free agent market and Haas have already revealed they are keen to speak to him.

Steiner says he is in no rush to make a decision on the remaining driver position for 2020, believing Grosjean and Hulkenberg's options are limited but admits it won't be an easy call to make when the time comes.

"If it was a clear decision it would be easy to make, we would agree immediately," team boss Steiner explained to Autosport.

"We're not sure what is the best, he is not, and I'm not. What we've got now is not bad, but can we make it better?

"How big is the risk that we want to make it better and it doesn't go in the right direction?

"It's a lot back and forward, but at some stage we need to come to a conclusion."
