Haas confirm pre-test launch date

16 Feb 2017

Sunday February 26 will be an exciting day for Formula One fans, with Haas having confirmed that they will launch their new car on that date - along with Red Bull and Toro Rosso.

Haas made a spectacular debut last year, the American team finishing eighth in the standings in their maiden season. They now hope to build on that success with their new VF-17 machine.

The Ferrari-powered challenger will be piloted by a revised driver line-up for 2017, with Kevin Magnussen moving from Renault to partner Romain Grosjean, replacing the outgoing Esteban Gutierrez.

The new Haas car is expected to make its track debut the day after its launch, when pre-season F1 testing begins at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain.

As things stand, Sauber will be the first team to reveal what their 2017 car looks like. For full details of confirmed launch dates, as well as the 2017 testing schedule, click here.
