Nico Hulkenberg on the New Car

According to some F1 journalists, Nico was open about the struggles with the car and performance. When asked: “Do you feel that the car is something that you can go racing with this year?”
Hulk replied, “We have to, whether we want to or not!”
It was clear that Nico was joking but the team’s struggles and driver’s disappointment was visible in the F1 season opener.
Hulk’s race had a bad start as he made contact with Lance Stroll’s Aston Martin at Turn 1. This forced him to take an unscheduled pit stop.

Talking about the incident, He said: “It’s very frustrating and disappointing, and it was a very similar scenario to last year into Turn 4 at the start,”

How is the Haas F1 car compared to others?

After the 1st race, one thing was pretty clear that Haas F1 will be able to challenge for some better results this year. They might not be in contention for podiums but will certainly challenge other middle order teams.

Based on initial observations we can say that the VF-24’s aerodynamics, power unit, and overall balance aren’t very far off from other middle order teams. Now a lot will depend on the development work but this year looks slightly better for the only American team on the F1 grid.
