Haas chief Guenther Steiner fined over Russian GP radio criticism | F1 News

Haas team boss Guenther Steiner has been fined by stewards for causing “moral injury” to officials in a radio outburst at a steward following the Russian GP last month.

At the request of the Sochi stewards, Steiner was summoned to stewards in Japan on Friday to explain his post-race comments to Kevin Magnussen after the Dane was given a five-second time penalty in Sochi and lost a position in the order as a result.

Steiner said his criticism “happened in the heat of the moment after a hotly contested race by his drivers” and that “he regretted his choice of words used at the time”.
