Guenther Steiner concedes that finding sponsorship is a “priority” for Haas, but insists the team won’t sell themselves on the cheap.
Last season Ferrari, who power both Haas and Sauber, announced a new big deal with the latter.
Under the new arrangement, Sauber has been rebranded as Alfa Romeo Sauber, which has brought engines, technical know-how and Charles Leclerc to the team.
Asked whether Ferrari have approached Haas with that same deal prior to confirming Sauber, Steiner told Motorsport.com: “No, not with us, nothing.”
He is, however, open to holding talks about a similar deal if one is put on the table.
