Steiner impressed Fittipaldi sacrificed racing for Haas test deal | 2019 F1 season

Haas team principal Guenther Steiner says he is impressed Pietro Fittipaldi was prepared to sacrifice racing opportunities in 2019 to become the team’s codeformula 1 test driver.
Fittipaldi, who drove the team’s VF-18 for the first time today, accepted that taking a test role at the team would limit his chances to race elsewhere next year.
Guenther Steiner: “There’s a lot of young drivers who don’t want to do this test driver role and simulator because you’re not in the limelight.”
Steiner said the team had demanded Fittipaldi’s availability at the majority of race weekends this year.
