IndyCar driver Graham Rahal has strongly disagreed with Haas’s claim that no American drivers are ready for Formula 1 racing.
Haas team principal Guenther Steiner has recently revealed that the team would like an American driver to race for them but does not believe any are up to standard.
“It’s not on top of our list,” Steiner told Autosport when asked about the prospect of signing an American driver.
“It’s on top of our list if there’s a good one. Obviously, we want one.
“But then maybe, if there is a really good one, would they come to us?
“Just having an American driver who maybe cannot compete at a certain level is maybe not good for the sport.
