He’s been with Haas since 2014, and his fame has only grown. He’s even got a book under his belt, Surviving to Drive, which hit the shelves in May 2023. But at 58, he’s not ready to close the book on… well, books.
Steiner’s Second Book: A Work in Progress
Steiner spilled the beans to Motorsport.com. “We’re working on book number two,” he said. Apparently, it was in the pipeline even before his departure. “The plot might take a bit of a twist now,” he added, a hint of excitement in his voice. He’s enjoyed collaborating with the writer, describing him as a “cool dude” and their sessions as “good fun.”
“No pressure, everything flowed naturally,” Steiner explained. He’s got more time on his hands now, but he’s still only committing to two half-hour sessions a week. “We meet on Tuesdays and Fridays. That’s my part, he handles the rest,” the ex-Haas boss concluded.
