Cape Town - Haas team principal Gunther Steiner has warned that it may be some time before Formula 1 gets its competitive edge back.
"I think there should be 10 teams fighting for the win, but that in the short term is difficult. I think F1 is working to make the field tighter, but I don’t know how that would be achieved.
"Any of these teams can go into Q3 and get into the points. It’s a very tense battle, but I think a nice battle and it keeps the constructors championship pretty open for the midfield.”
Haas will be looking to collect points for a third consecutive race this weekend after Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean got the team up and running in China and Bahrain respectively with eighth place finishes.
