Haas changes F1 car from grey to black-and-gold for 2019

Haas changes F1 car from grey to black-and-gold for 2019

Kevin Magnussen talks Sky Sports' Craig Slater through Haas' ambitions for 2019 and what might happen at the front of the field.

Haas are the first team to reveal images of a 2019 Formula 1 auto.

And the British firm's chief executive has set out what he hopes to achieve from their first involvement in F1.

"We think we've got a real opportunity to beat them - off the track", said Storey.

The American team has dropped the red, grey and black colours associated with owner Gene Haas' company, Haas Automation, in favour of those of new title sponsor Rich Energy, a new and little-known energy drinks company from London.

"There's an very bad lot of people who are querying Formula 1 as a platform at the moment and I personally believe it's going to go from strength to strength". "They are a David taking on Goliaths and we are the same in the drinks business".

"Red Bull have spent £250billion in F1 and past year across Toro Rosso and Red Bull, there or there abouts, £400million".

When asked if Haas were aiming for fourth this season, Steiner replied: "For sure, we will try". But I can see how we are growing as a team and we are gaining more and more experience, [and] we're learning with that experience that we're gaining, also, to make use of that experience.

Where will Haas be in the order?

The gulf between the sport's top three - champions Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull - and the rest has become embarrassing.

Turkey building collapse death toll rises to 3; 12 rescued
At least three people have been found dead in the rubble, and 13 people - including Tekgoz - have been rescued. More than 40 people have been living in the building's 14 apartments, the city's governor Ali Yerlikaya said.

Haas will be fielding an unchanged driver line-up of Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen for 2019.

Magnussen told Denmark's BT newspaper: "We are in the part of the field where it is really competitive".

"To take as big a step [in 2019] is very hard - it's going to be incredibly hard to even hold on to where we were a year ago".

McLaren's Zak Brown called for Haas' technical relationship with Ferrari to be "looked at closely" following the impressive performance of the USA outfit's VR-18 vehicle at winter testing a year ago.

"Renault and Force India have developed a lot, and McLaren and Williams are two big teams that should never be underestimated. We want to get better".

Then, late a year ago, having been courted by Williams in Austin, Rich Energy made an 11th hour decision to take its money to Haas, once again raising eyebrows in the paddock and on social media.

Haas title sponsor Rich Energy's CEO says he wants the Formula 1 team to "challenge Red Bull" on and off-track.

"By every metric they were vastly superior", said Storey. In terms of they're uniquely positioned to exploit regulation changes. "I felt that as a business, they were living off past glories and didn't run a very good business".

"They have got a brilliant team principal and two drivers with personality, which is superb". The 2019 F1 season starts on March 14, 2019, in Australia.
