Guenther Steiner opens up about the book he has written about the 2022 F1 season and having no regrets signing rookie drivers for Haas.

Post the 2022 F1 season, Haas informed about the book being written by Steiner named ‘Surviving to Drive’ which is to release in the April of 2023. It is to carry all the insights on what happened during the year under new regulations.

Ever since Haas joined the F1 grid, the team has been in the news often for various reasons. The year 2022 was no less when they lost title sponsor Uralkali due to the war situation between Russia-Ukraine, as Nikita Mazepin was dropped as well.

Haas had to rush in call up Kevin Magnussen who returned happily, while Steiner then had to decide the fate of Mick Schumacher throughout the year for 2023. The German was eventually dropped for Nico Hulkenberg, who is returning to F1.

The book is likely to carry most of the happening and thoughts of Steiner. “I don’t know if it’s an award-winning book,” he said in a video interview to, when asked about the book and the reason behind writing this.

“But there’s a book coming out. It was just a project which somebody asked me if I’m interested to do at the end of ’21, and obviously not knowing what is coming in ‘22. We did it over the year, and after each race on all the dramas we had.

“We actually picked a good year, I think, to write a book, to have something to tell a story to people who are interested in this stuff. Hopefully people enjoy it. This is not what I’m going to do in the rest of my life – being an author – but it’s one of these projects I normally do.

“You know, I get inspired and then, ‘Let’s do it,’ you know, ‘Let’s try it.’ If it isn’t good, nobody will buy it, and nobody gets hurt, basically. But if people like to read it and enjoy it, that’s a good thing,” summed up Steiner, who is to show another skill of his with the book after becoming a popular face of Netflix’s Drive to Survive series.

Regarding the rookie driver line-up he opted for the 2020 and 2021 F1 seasons, Steiner has no regrets for selecting them as Haas were not in the position to do anything. “No, absolutely not,” he said. “Because, two years ago, were in a different position, and now we’re in a different position again. So, I think we’re in a lot better position now in F1 in general than two years ago, when we had to find solutions [for] how to keep on going.”
