In Haas do not mind the 25 races in the calendar

Director Haas Gunther Steiner admitted that he was not against the increase of the racing calendar of Formula 1.Gunther Steiner "I don't mind a few extra races. I want to race was more complex and ordered. If races are held in Asia, it is necessary to hold all the races in this region, and not to hold one in Europe, then come back here.Another question is, how will the pilots be able to physically withstand the weekly race. Will they be able to hold the race in Abu Dhabi, and then another one in Bahraini. Heat and humidity adversely affect pilots.But a few races if they are well organized, will not have a negative impact on the work of the teams. In General, I have nothing against having to take part in 25 races".
