Ted Kravitz makes huge Haas prediction

Haas has unveiled what it hopes to be a game-changing set of updates, as the American team enjoys the second of three home races.

Ahead of the United States Grand Prix, Sky Sports F1 pundit Ted Kravitz has issued a compelling prediction: “watch out for Haas.” 

This anticipation stems from the American-based team’s bold decision to veer away from their long-standing association with Ferrari’s concept, opting instead to embrace Red Bull’s innovative approach following their spectacular 2022 season.

Haas’s choice to realign their strategy for the 2023 season will become evident in Austin, where they are set to introduce an exceptionally significant upgrade at a point in the season when major overhauls are generally less common. 

Guenther Steiner, the team’s principal, has emphasised the importance of this move, asserting that it will provide much-needed “stability.”

The shift towards Red Bull’s concept represents a notable departure from their close relationship with Ferrari, which has been integral to Haas for an extended period. 

The decision to alter course comes in the wake of Red Bull’s undeniable success in Formula 1.

Haas’s current standing in the constructors’ championship is ninth, a reflection of what has been a challenging season that has yielded only 12 points from the first 17 races. 

However, the team remains optimistic about the remainder of their 2023 campaign, setting their sights on a seventh-place finish. Currently, Williams occupies that position with 23 points.

Ted Kravitz shed light on the potential impact of Haas’s forthcoming upgrades, which are poised to be game-changers. 

“Guenther Steiner was talking about how they’ve got a new concept for next year,” he disclosed on Sky Sports F1. 

“Haas are going down the Red Bull concept, they’re going to abandon following Ferrari on their concept and they’re going to go purely Red Bull concept, and the first elements of that – the upgrades, are going to be at the US Grand Prix in Austin.”
