Haas team boss Guenther Steiner has described the first-lap crash between Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen in the British GP as "unacceptable".
Steiner said: "We need to go away and evaluate what actually happened at turn one and avoid this for the future. This is obviously not acceptable because we keep on losing points while having a good car."
According to the team, the two Haas drivers made contact taking avoiding action after Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen hit Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes.
The Silverstone stewards reviewed the incident but ruled no further action was required.
But Grosjean said: "At the beginning of the race with Kevin, I think it was a mistake from both of us. It shouldn't happen, so we need to work on that to ensure it doesn't happy anymore."
The Frenchman later crashed out of the race with Carlos Sainz. The stewards ruled that neither driver had been wholly to blame for the collision.
Magnussen finished the race in ninth position, with the two points ultimately keeping Haas ahead of Force India in fifth place in the Constructors' Championship.
