Both Haas drivers finished in the top ten this Friday in the second free practice session of the 2022 Bahrain Grand Prix; a good performance for the American team which did not experience any reliability problems during this first day.
On the eve of the first Formula One weekend of the year, the Haas team feared that reliability problems would mar its Bahrain Grand Prix after having encountered several problems during winter testing on the VF-22. But this Friday, the two drivers, Mick Schumacher and Kevin Magnussen, were able to complete their program without encountering the slightest technical problem and even finished in the top ten.
“It was a good day, surprisingly there were no problems with the car, no gremlins, nothing. noted Guenther Steiner, team principal of the Haas team, this Friday evening in Bahrain .
“It means the team has done a fantastic job over the past week, from testing to now – it’s been hard work. For EL1s and EL2s, we were there, and we are where we wanted to be. We just need now to be there for qualifying, with the same pace and reliability, and for the race. »
In FP2, Mick Schumacher set the eighth time, while his teammate Kevin Magnussen took tenth place in the final standings.
