Günther Steiner drags the Magnussen team to court

Günther Steiner is far from done with Haas. Now the partners have to fight a legal battle because Steiner believes he has money to his credit.

It may well be that Günther Steiner has finished at the top of Haas F1. But the former team manager is not finished with the team.

It appears from court documents that Günther Steiner believes he has money to his credit at Haas. And that is why he is now taking the team to court.

That's what Autosport writes.

From the documents referred to by the media, it is not clear what compensation – and if so how much – the 59-year-old Steiner believes he is entitled to.

But according to Autosport, it concerns parts of sponsorship agreements that Steiner believes he has not been remunerated for having procured for the team. At the same time, the Steiner camp believes that Haas is using his person as an advertising pillar without having the right to do so.

Steiner was Haas' first team manager, but after nine years of cooperation he left. And in his place, the Formula 1 team brought in Ayao Komatsu. This is an internal promotion, as Ayao Komatsu already held the position of chief engineer.

This is not the first time that Steiner and (Gene) Haas have argued about money. It was reportedly a question of ownership and therefore money that ultimately gave Steiner the final push out of the Haas garage.

On the other hand, there are indications that Haas has reversed a downward trend since chief engineer Komatsu took over completely. With the Japanese in charge, Kevin Magnussen and Nico Hulkenberg have for the time being secured the team five points in the constructors' championship. That's enough for an immediate 7th place.
