The Hass F1 Team will showcase online the livery of its 2021 VF-21 next week on March 4, while the team will pull the covers off its actual car in the pitlane in Bahrain ahead of the start of pre-season testing.
Due to current travel restrictions and quarantine requirements in the UK, Haas has been unable to complete the assembly of its new car with Ferrari, its engine supplier, at its Branbury factory.
The team will therefore roll out its VF-21 at Sakhir and formerly present its all-new driver line-up of FIA Formula 2 champion Mick Schumacher and Russian hopeful Nikita Mazepin, while Pietro Fittipaldi will fulfill once again the role of reserve driver.
The US outfit’s 2021 charger will be little changed from its predecessor, save for the mandatory aero design changes mandated by this year’s regulations.
Haas will hopefully benefit from the input of Ferrari designer Simone Resta who has been dispatched to the US outfit by the Scuderia.
However, Resta’s work this season will be mainly directed at next year’s contender when the rules are due to undergo a major overhaul to encourage closer competition.
