Guenther Steiner Claims That Football Managers Are Oblivious To Pressure In New Book.

According to a Formula1News report, Haas’ team principal, Guenther Steiner, won over many fans after the release of season one of Netflix’s “Drive to Survive” documentary series.

Guenther Steiner and Haas’ supporters should mark April 2023 on their calendars since the Italian will be publishing a book in the month that takes readers inside the details of the team’s 2022 season.

The book, “Surviving to Drive,” is essentially a collection of Steiner’s diary entries during the 2022 season and it focuses on how the fan-favorite manages the American side.

Haas had a fascinating year in 2022, as the side finally managed to be in the points and was a consistent midfield team. However, there were numerous challenges, chief among them was determining who would serve as the team’s second driver in the next season.

Nico Hulkenberg, who will be making his much-awaited return to full-time Formula 1, will replace Mick Schumacher after the team opted to part ways with him. It’s possible that the book will go into Steiner’s handling of Schumacher, which drew harsh criticisms last season.

Steiner’s diary entries are used in the book to take readers “on the thrilling rollercoaster of life at the heart of high-stakes motor racing.” Fans can be sure they will enjoy the book based on Steiner’s description of it.

Steiner was quoted as saying: “People talk about football managers being under pressure. Trust me, that’s nothing. Pressure is watching one of your drivers hit a barrier at 190mph and exploding before your eyes…”

The book, which will be Steiner’s first, will surely be published after the upcoming season of the popular Netflix docuseries “Drive to Survive,” which has made him a “rockstar.” On the popular show, fans adored Steiner and enjoyed several of his catchphrases.

A good example is when Steiner said: “We could have looked like rockstars, but now we look like a bunch of w**kers,” following the 2018 Australian Grand Prix. Steiner, who does seem tremendously enthused about the book, can’t think of a better time to talk about it now that the 2022 season is done.

He said: “I don’t think I could have picked a more active year than this one to document some of the many things a team principal has to go through in Formula 1,”

“I’ve never looked at keeping a diary before and, while I like to look forward, it’s been fun to look back over this year proofing this book again and reflecting on the many highs and lows we’ve encountered at Haas F1 Team.

“Ultimately the highs stand-out more, from Kevin Magnussen’s points-scoring return in Bahrain to Mick Schumacher’s first points at Silverstone, through to the team’s first-ever pole position in Brazil and our eighth-place finish in the Constructors’ Championship – it’s been quite the season.

“It’s the hard work of everyone on our team that has returned us to the fight in Formula 1 and I can’t thank everyone who’s a part of Haas F1 Team enough for their efforts and dedication.

“I hope people enjoy this insight into our 2022 season and hopefully, they’ll come along for the ride in 2023 when we look to build on this year’s successes.”
