Steiner tells Haas critics to read the rules
Gunther Steiner says he is unfazed amid criticism of Haas' controversial approach to F1.
After two strong points finishes in Australia and Bahrain, some of the American outfit's established rivals have questioned whether allowing the relationship with Ferrari is the right way forward for F1.
"I think everyone has a right to their opinion," boss Steiner said.
"We are very pleased with the results that we have achieved by following the current technical regulations.
"So I do not pay attention to the criticism. All my attention is on the races, and while people can express their views, I suggest everyone also reads the rules, as they are easily available," he added.
And Steiner also played down the closeness of the Ferrari alliance, revealing for example that Haas cannot rely on its Italian partner for information and data about the circuits.
"No, we cannot get this information from Ferrari," he insisted. "It is not allowed."
