Between the promoted teams and Formula 1 stars, he’s a raucous, catchy phrasing boss who stands out as the protagonist of the series “Dirir Para Vive”, Netflix’s version of everything that happens in the category. In season four, Gunther Steiner returns to Haas with his brutal honesty in managing another crisis.
Haas Boss has experienced a transformation in the stage series. He was angered by everything in 2019, the year the team fell in the standings, and even had his own almost full episode in which he called the team’s drivers “fucking idiots” during another crisis.
However, over time, he began to respond better to the upheaval. In the present, her sly side competes with a smiling version of Steiner, who prefers to show the lightness of someone who believes she has a storm under control.

Born in the extreme north of Italy, Steiner studied engineering and became a mechanic for the world rally team in the 1980s. He arrived in Formula 1 in 2001 and was Jaguar’s director for two years.

In this sense, Steiner is one of those people who are most visible on screen.
