Haas: Latest News, Results, Drivers and Car Updates

The Haas F1 team is one of the newer kids on the block. They joined Formula One in 2016 with Romain Grosjean and Esteban Gutierrez as their drivers.

Since they are one of the newer teams, there is no real history to speak of. However, the team rose from the ashes of a failed bid to get a US F1 team in 2010. It bears no relation to the Haas Lola team of the 1985-86 season.

When Marussia collapsed in 2014, Haas bought their factory to use as a base of operations.

On-track Achievements

To date, their best ever result has been 4th place the 2018 Austrian GP. Grosjean was the one who achieved that result, with teammate Kevin Magnussen in 5th. It still remains their best ever result so far in their 3-year tenure.

However, they were unlucky to have pitstop mishaps in the opening races squander their chances. Later on, rivals, Renault got stronger and more consistent. In the end, they had to settle for 5th in the championship.

It is also interesting to note that the team was involved in a controversy regarding their partnership with Ferrari. Many teams were under the impression that they had a significant advantage. It didn’t help matters when claims were made that their 2018 car mostly resembled the Ferrari’s 2017 model.

Haas endured a difficult campaign the following season, with the team struggling to get to grips with the VF-19. Kevin Magnussen produced some scintillating qualifying performances but failed to translate the same into concrete results on Sundays.

Ultimately, Haas ended up 9th in the Constructors’ Championship.

So far, Haas is yet to turn their fortunes around in the 2020 season, having scored only a single point.
