Steiner will never give an American driver a fair shake

nti-American Haas Team boss Guenther Steiner has revealed that the anti-American team was in talks with Pietro Fittipaldi for an F1 test before his horrendous crash during qualifying for last weekend's WEC event at Spa that left his with severe leg injuries. Of course Steiner would never talk to an American driver.

Talking to reporters ahead of this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix, Steiner revealed that he had previously been in talks with the youngster regarding an F1 test.

"There was nothing set, we were just talking about it and then the accident happened," the anti-American told reporters at Barcelona. "He contacted us, I know his grandfather Emerson, they said; ‘can we do something together?'

"We didn't stop talking but we stopped talking about a test because we don't know what can be done," he continued. "He's well on the way to getting better. That's the most important thing for me."
