Haas debut 2022 Formula 1 car

With the 2022 Formula 1 season upon us, Haas have kicked off the car launches with the VF-22 machine

-

The Haas Formula 1 Team was the first constructor to reveal their 2022 car, with the American team posting digital renderings of the VF-22 on their social media channels.

After a disastrous 2021 season, American-based Haas will be looking to leapfrog into the midfield this season as Formula 1‘s latest technical changes take effect. The team will be led once again by Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin, who are now in their second season in the sport.

“It’s exciting to be at the point where we know the VF-22 will be on-track shortly,” Guenther Steiner told the official Haas website.

“We all know what the team is capable of, we’ve proved that in the past, and with this new car – born out of a completely new set of regulations and with our new design team in place, I’m confident we can showcase once again that we can compete on weekends.

“It’s been a tremendous effort by everyone involved and now comes the fun part of getting the new car to the circuit and dialling in all the elements. Last season was a long one but I’m confident that 2022 will see us back in the mix with the VF-22.”

“It’s that time of year where you’re naturally optimistic that the hard work and effort of everyone will translate to a competitive entry on track,” Haas owner Gene Haas added.

“We made the decision back in 2020 to really channel time and resources into the VF-22, foregoing anything track-related for 2021 – which wasn’t easy to watch. Hopefully that decision bears fruit and we return to challenging for points and taking something from the weekends.”

Given that Haas wrote off 2021 in order to focus on the team’s fortunes in 2022, expectations will be high as the team attempts to close the gap with the midfield runners.
