Haas team principal Guenther Steiner says rookie drivers Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin are now fully aware of the challenge F1 presents.
When Haas chose to release Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean after the 2020 season, the decision was made to go in completely the opposite direction and create a line-up with no Formula 1 experience.
Ten rounds have now passed, with one more, the Hungarian Grand Prix, to go before Formula 1 enters its three-week summer shutdown.
At this stage, Steiner says both of his drivers have learnt that nothing else compares to Formula 1.
“Both of them have realised how intense and difficult a sport Formula 1 is when you get there,” he said as part of Haas’ Hungarian Grand Prix preview.
