Haas could delay driver announcement

Haas Formula One team could delay their driver decision until after the season has ended. Team boss Gene Haas says that the team feels no rush to announce their line-up and are happy with their current situation.

“I don’t think we’ve made any hard decisions,” Haas said. “We’re happy with our drivers as they are, but we’re still evaluating everything and there’s no advantage for us to say exactly who we may or may not have drive in 2017. We just keep evaluating, and every week we have a little bit more information. I wouldn’t be surprised if we wait until the end of the season to make a decision. You never know who might become available that might change our perspective, so there’s no big advantage to announcing our line-up sooner.”

When asked whether it was likely Esteban Gutierrez would remain at the team, Haas said he still has a chance at a 2017 seat. “We’ve not excluded Esteban or anything like that. He is our current driver and we’re happy – there are four more races to bring in more information to decide what we want to do. Every race is important, and every race has a story to tell. We just want to evaluate things.”
