A late collision with Daniil Kvyat in Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix caused Haas and Kevin Magnussen to miss out on a ninth-place finish.
Magnussen was battling to keep Kvyat behind him in the closing stages but picked up a puncture after contact between the two cars.
He dropped to 14th as a result, although it did mean that his team-mate Romain Grosjean moved up into 10th to at least score one point for the Banbury-based team.
However, the team was disappointed not to get more out of the race in which a number of big name drivers fell out of contention.
Team principal Guenther Steiner blamed the medium tyres.
He said: “A disappointing end following a good start to the race.
“We were in good positions, the car was going well on the soft tyres and then the virtual safety car came out and we lost all our momentum.
“It just came out at the wrong time. We went too early on to the medium tyres and we just couldn’t get it to work.
“The guys lost a few positions and then Kevin had a puncture.
“The only good thing coming out of here is that we got a point.
“We should have more, but that’s racing.”
