The German suffered a major accident during the Monaco Grand Prix, wiping the gearbox from the back of his car, just weeks after an equally devastating accident in qualifying in Jeddah.

He was also injured in the collision Sebastian Vettel in the later stages of the Miami Grand Prix.

The chassis that crashed in Monaco is now under repair, and Schumacher lost the use of the gearbox that was torn off in the collision.

“It’s just impossible to keep going,” Steiner said. “And he knows it. He also crashed into a wall at some point. This is also unhealthy.

“Obviously he wants to score points, and if you crash into a wall, you don’t score points.

“He knows it, so it’s like putting pressure on him and telling him you shouldn’t go and crash. I don’t. I never do that. Because I think they know they shouldn’t crash.” .

“So, I think a lot of things are happening, but there’s not one simple answer. We need to see how we’re going to move forward. There are a lot of things we need to figure out now.”

He added: “It’s a very competitive sport. And it’s easy to step over a bit and you will do a lot of damage, especially on this race track like Monte Carlo, Jeddah, here is Montreal – another one, Singapore, and he just needs to adjust himself not to do what was done in Monte Carlo.

“But I haven’t told him five times to do it better, I think it’s worse because it’s like I understand it, and then maybe you’ll get a backlash.”

Steiner said the crashes meant the team had already exceeded the damage rate for the 2022 season.

“We passed this allowance, we passed it in Jeddah. We are before the allowance, I would like to be before how many points we scored, but we are before the allowance for accidents.

But the team boss insisted that he did not need to give Schumacher a lecture on the cost of damage, as it was clear that this was not positive for the team.

“No, we talked about it, but I don’t explain to him how much and how I need to manage the team,” he said.

“He reads what you write and so comes up to me and asks if it’s really that amount of money? I said I don’t know because I didn’t say it. So you’re estimating it, but yeah, it’s it the amount of money.

Steiner stressed that while larger teams are concerned about the impact of accidents on cost constraints, with Haas the problem is that the team can spend on spare parts from suppliers of Dallara and Ferrari.

“The problem is not budget constraints,” he said. “The budget is a problem because we are not on the verge of a budget.

“So obviously it’s never worth adding, and the additional problem we have now is just the speed to keep up, to make the parts harder and harder.

“And Dollars, they work day and night just because we have spare parts, so we can keep working. Money is always a problem because you have to pay, but really the problem was to make enough parts because production can do so much.

“You don’t have five molds for fairings, you have one mold, and if you keep making them, it takes time. So it was a challenge, but Dallara is doing a very good job.

“Ferrari, as far as the suspension is concerned, helped us because we also run out of suspension because they can’t keep up with it. But otherwise with a budget you just have to give something, you can’t keep just spending the money you have “. did not receive “.

Steiner acknowledged that it is difficult to compare the damage caused by the accident with the possible impact on obtaining car updates.

“No, you can’t quantify it that way,” he said. “You just need to try to save elsewhere, and not always you don’t go right out of emergency parts and upgrades, it’s a mix of everything, it’s not as easy as that. So you just try to do your best and try to run so as to make budget estimates.

“Nothing to sacrifice. And we’re still at the beginning of the season, so you can still hope you can save elsewhere because we’re so early. But if you continue like this, you’ll run out of time and money to do savings “.
