Pink Bull has dominated the three occasions held up to now in 2023, with Max Verstappen successful in Bahrain and Australia and his team-mate Sergio Perez triumphing in Saudi Arabia.
Whereas some observers have expressed considerations 12 months of supremacy by one crew can be unhealthy for F1 and following on from Pink Bull’s dominant 2022 season, Steiner confused that sporting integrity ought to all the time have precedence over the present.
“The game is the principle factor we’ve to have,” he mentioned, when requested by Autosport what the precedence must be.
“The present is secondary, however I believe it can kind itself out after which nonetheless we’ve received a very good race happening within the entrance now with Checo and Max, that does not appear to be with out sparks, with out present.
“There’s some present aspect in that one now. However I am not frightened that different individuals will catch up.”
Steiner insisted that the present guidelines don’t should be modified.
“I might say they work,” he famous. “Clearly in the meanwhile Pink Bull has a bonus, however I would not say they’ll hold that benefit now for the following 20 races.
“I am not so positive about that as a result of everyone will catch up, and hopefully we learn the way Pink Bull got here to this benefit and we are able to copy it, or do one thing related.
“All people can be working exhausting. Then you definitely by no means need to neglect Pink Bull has received the penalty from final 12 months, they’ll do much less improvement within the wind tunnel this 12 months, so they can’t transfer rather a lot forward anymore in concept.
“So you must see. However they did a unbelievable job. And due to this fact, you can not blame the laws for that. As a result of if someone does a greater job than anyone else, they need to get the benefit.”

Requested what he would consider any try to vary the foundations to sluggish Pink Bull, he mentioned: “I imply it is a voting system, you can not make strikes simply because someone is quicker than someone else, that is not truthful.
“In the event that they discover that one thing is just not authorized, they’ll alter the foundations. Security is all the time a priority. However I believe we have to discover out in a couple of races what’s going on actually. I believe we should not leap to a conclusion but.”
In the meantime Steiner expects the battle between the midfield groups round Haas to stay tight.
“It should rely on the race monitor configuration, who’s within the entrance and who’s again,” he mentioned. “There can be vehicles can be higher on high-speed programs, there can be some that are higher like in Monte Carlo, however we do not know but.
“So we’ll discover out each race there can be some swapping round, in my view.”
