Formula 1: Haas launch new car for 2017 season

Monday, 27 February 2017 :  Haas have launched their new car for the 2017 season ahead of pre-season testing in Barcelona.

The VF-17 follows the team’s debut, the VF-16, which took Haas to an eighth-place finish in their maiden season.

It features many of the elements seen on other cars following new regulations aimed at making the cars faster and more demanding.

“It is very different from last year’s car,” said team principal Guenther Steiner.

“You always try to make a faster car, which is normally a lighter car. Now we can put on more ballast and get better weight distribution. The aero is completely new, as are the tyres, so we needed to have some built-in adjustability.

“Aesthetically, the car has a more aggressive look. It’s lighter and more aerodynamically efficient. Everything we learned from our first car has been applied to our new car.”

Kevin Magnussen will partner Romain Grosjean after leaving Renault in November.
