Ferrari’s baby brother
As the first new Formula One team for six years, and the first American squad since 1986, Haas F1 heads into its debut season in 2016.
Unlike the previous new Formula One entrants, Virgin (now Manor), Lotus (which became Caterham) and HRT, Haas F1 has both a serious budget and a unique relationship with Ferrari. The American squad, which is owned by Gene Haas, who founded the machine tool company, Haas Automation, will use Ferrari power units and other numerous systems incorporated into a chassis produced by Dallara.
Haas F1 is expecting to make a serious impression on Formula One in its debut season and has signed experience drivers in Esteban Gutierrez and particularly, Romain Grosjean, who will lead the line for the new team.
