It’s happened. F1 has got its own ‘Yanny or Laurel’ moment. In a recent interview with F1 journalist Chris Medland, Haas F1 Boss Guenther Steiner said he’d do something to all the paddock in return for just two points last year.
However, his answer has been somewhat misheard, and to be honest, we can see why.

“It’s always disappointing,” the clip starts. “You always want maximum. But then, if you think about it, you cannot be too greedy. You know, last year, for two points, I would have HUGGED the whole paddock,” Steiner says in the video clip that’s gone viral on social media.
However, when listening to the clip itself, it very much sounds like he’d fuck the entire paddock 😂 We knew times were tough last year for Haas, but that’s taking things to another level.

Chris apologises for the strong language before Guenther clarifies he didn’t say fuck but rather HUG the entire paddock. That’s a bit more family-friendly!
What do you hear Guenther say? Let us know in the comments.
