Formula 1: Is the Haas upgrade too late?

The Haas upgrade was to arrive at Silverstone (July 3) at the earliest. “We have a good upgrade package for about four or five races ahead, so I’m sure. I do not know what the others will bring, but I know a lot more next Monday,” Steiner said.

Schumacher himself is worried that updates could complicate the car. “Updates make it difficult to understand the car better because you are constantly evolving,” says the German. “If the car remained the same, after five races you may know it a little better because it is the same, but we are constantly changing it to make it faster.”
