What they say

Steiner was asked whether Grosjean’s first points finish of the season in Germany will have a bearing on the team’s driver line-up choice for 2021:

I don’t think so. We cannot be this emotional that we can go from race to race and decide on and off. It needs to be, as I’ve always said, a decision for the long term, not for the short term, and don’t want to fall into that trap.

I stay very stable on that one. I want to evaluate what I’ve always said want to evaluate how can the team perform or how we think the team will perform based with which drivers in the next two, three, four years?
