Guenther Steiner has made clear that Haas F1 will have no issues staying within the budget cap this season. 

Christian Horner has made no secret of his concerns with the budget cap, stipulating that the effects of inflation will make it difficult for teams to stay within the cap and complete the season.

Horner gave his thoughts early in the month to the BBC.

"Seven of the teams would probably need to miss the last four races to come within the cap this year. It's not just about the big teams. It's teams in the middle of the field who are really struggling with inflationary issues."

However, this sentiment has been contradicted by most team principals since, adamant that the budget cap cannot be changed mid-season.

Guenther Steiner is among them, telling Sky F1 that he is confident Haas will have no issue in keeping within the cap:

"I think some teams would be happy if the Red Bull isn't coming to the last four races, and I know a red car would be very happy about that.

But seriously speaking, we have no issue to do all the races."

Despite the sentiment floated by Horner, the smaller teams that he eluded to as being most vulnerable seem very comfortable in staying within the cap.
