On February 7th in London, Haas F1 Team as the first one presented a new car before the upcoming Formula One season.
In the October 2018 the premium energy drink company from the United Kingdom, Rich Energy, became the Haas’ title partner. In the freshly-presented car the black and gold colors of the brand were implemented. Its look reminds immediately of Lotus R31 from 2011. It was the last presented car by Robert Kubica before the accident in Ronde di Andora rally, which interrupted his career in Formula One.
This year’s car made by Americans, VF-19, includes as its predecessor team partners’ logos: JACK & JONES, PEAK, blueDEF, Richard Mille, Alpinestars and Pirelli. Except that it does not remind of the previous’ year model VF-18, which was mainly white and red.
In this car Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen will try to beat their results from the last season, when they finished fifth in the constructors standings, thanks to 56 points collected by the Dane and 37 points by the Frenchman.
The next teams to present their cars for the upcoming season will be Robert Kubica’s Williams, Torro Rosso, Renault, Mercedes, Racing Point, Red Bull, McLaren, Ferrari and Alfa Romeo.
