In a recent interview with Formula1.com, Guenther Steiner has stated that there are currently no American drivers "out there at the moment" who could potentially fill a race seat at Haas F1 for the 2016 Formula One season. The American outfit hopes to make their debut for the 2016 season, but are still in the process of securing the right drivers for their particular situation. It's no secret that Steiner has been trying to sign a more experienced driver line up for their first year in the sport as a matter of safety, however, as Max Vestappen and Carlos Sainz Jr. have proven so far this season, betting on young talent can pay off handsomely. However, at this stage it appears that Steiner doesn't feel this is the safest route for their first year in the sport. When asked about the importance of getting an American driver onboard, Steiner said, "There is nobody out there at the moment. Yes, there are drivers in GP2 and Formula Three, but having a rookie in a new team… that is difficult for both sides. The potential of such a partnership failing is pretty high. So at the moment we’d rather not be looking at that avenue, because you are also not helping an inexperienced driver - he could be burned in one season. We are new, so we need a known quantity in the team." Alex Rossi is performing well in GP2 this year, but is reportedly not what Haas F1 are looking for at the present moment. This quote from Steiner must be a tough pill to swallow for young GP2 driver Alexander Rossi, who has turned many-a-head this season amidst the domination of GP2 courtesy of Stoffel Vandoorne. Rossi, a former reserve driver for Caterham and Marussia has only driven in a few official Formula One Practice sessions, was tipped to be one of the more likely candidates for a Haas F1 seat given his nationality in order to help Formula One gain more traction in the US with the combination of an American driver in an American team. But with the ever changing landscape that is Formula One, this looks to have fallen through. Do you think Haas F1 should gamble on untamed rookie talent as has happened with Toro Rosso? Or do you agree with their current approach of taking a safer pair of hands with more experience for their debut season?
