Haas believe in repetition: Hopefully topper we

MELBOURNE (Ekstra Bladet): Haas comes to Melbourne with ‘hope’ and ‘enthusiasm’ to use Kevin Magnussen words. But otherwise, dry neither the Danish racing driver or the competitors in the Formula 1’s to close its center predict too much about how the ranking looks like at the start of the season.

But the qualification outside the top ten will be a disappointment, acknowledges Kevin Magnussen, then completely trash it seems.

team boss Günther Steiner is also positive. He expects that the team, like last year, can make itself felt at the front of midterfeltet after the three topteams.

- I think we are between four and six. But it is so close in years, he says.

Renault is there. I think Alfa Romeo is quite strong. And I don't know quite where the others are. Toro Rosso so strong out at a time. We underestimate no one.

the Assessment is based on test times, but as even ten kilos of fuel makes a difference, it is impossible to calculate accurately how the teams are distributed.

Within three-tenths is a three-four teams now. Hopefully we are on top, " notes Steiner.

Further down the paddock is Kevin Magnussens former boss Frederic Vasseur even more careful.

- Even on Sunday evening the picture will not be clear. Every team prepares differently, and if you look at the last ten years, Melbourne is not representative of the season, says Alfa Romeo-team head to Ekstra Bladet.

- I make no predictions, it looks very close, and we had a little trouble in the second testuge. The beginning of the season will be tough, but much better than last year. We'll probably need a few races to get started.

Haas will be the big question if they can get this week's soft tyres (C4) to function. Type teased under test; admittedly, during cooler temperatures than in Australia.

- It is a challenge, and it would be great to be fast on all types of tyre. Therefore, you are testing in order to understand them. But in Barcelona I'd rather be fast on the hard types, for they are to be used for the race. C4 and C5 are not designed for Barcelona. We were pretty solid on the harder types under test. We get to see how it transferred to here, notes Günther Steiner.
