AUSTIN (Ekstra Bladet): the Move by Haas looked horrible on Friday at Circuit of the Americas, but the team felt quite convinced, that it is not so bad, as the lap times suggested.
the Focus was on aerodynamic development and not setup for this weekend.
the Hope for Kevin Magnussen was to qualify just outside the top ten with a chance to run with for a little much-needed points.
the Feeling in the car was marked on Saturday in the final training.
- a Little understeer in the slow turns. Highspeed is SO much better than yesterday. And I had a bit of traffic, said Kevin Magnussen over the radio after his first stint.
Teamkammeraten Romain Grosjean sounded not quite so confident, even though he drove the best Haas-time, which stretched to 13. square.
But in contrast to yesterday stamped Haas into midterfeltet.
Alfa Romeo, Toro Rosso, Renault, Racing Points and Haas are within three tenths of each other, so there is hope for an exciting timing.

Ferrari and Charles Leclerc is in trouble. A olielæk on the first place of the training means that the mechanics are in the fight with the time to switch to an older motor unit.
Max Verstappen was fastest in the third workout, while the soon-to six fold world champion Lewis Hamilton more worked with a sector at a time.
McLaren was the last fitness really big surprise. Lando Norris was tredjehurtigst only a half a second after Red Bull's dutchman.
In Racing Points, the team has put a fourth Mercedes engine in Sergio Perez’ races, which is not going to make a difference in the startgridden. Mexicaneren must start from the pitlane, after he during the training missed a weighing.
