Haas Reveal 2017 Car Launch Date

The Haas Formula One team will unveil their 2017 car on the eve of pre-season testing at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Formula One’s newest team will unveil their 2017 challenger – which will be called the VF-17 – on Sunday 26th February, the day before the start of pre-season testing.

Haas have chosen to reveal their car on the same day as Red Bull Racing and Toro Rosso.

Their 2017 car will continue to be built by Dallara and run with Ferrari power units, owing to their continued techincal partnership with the Maranello team.

The American team will continue with their lead driver Romain Grosjean, whilst Esteban Gutierrez leaves the team to be replaced by former McLaren and Renault driver Kevin Magnussen.

A lightning start to their debut season saw them pick up 22 of their 29 points in the first two races, with remarkable sixth and fifth place finishes from Romain Grosjean at the Australian and Bahrain Grands Prix.

However, reliability issues – primarily in the form of brake problems – plagued the second half of their season, where they claimed just one point in the final twelve races of the season.

    I’d love to see Haas make a jump this year. It would not only be an amazing thing for an F1 team to do, but I think it would really boost viewership in America.
