Haas F1 Team News
Haas, the youngest team on the grid, debuted in 2016 and quickly made waves as the first American-led Formula One team in more than three decades. They were founded by businessman Gene Haas and have their headquarters in the same building in Kannapolis, North Carolina as his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series title-winning team, Stewart-Haas Racing. The flamboyant Guenther Steiner is in charge of the Ferrari-powered team, which also has a facility in Banbury, United Kingdom.
Having decided to instead work on the 2022 vehicle throughout the season rather than the 2021 machine, you will end the year with no points. With a top finish of 12th in Hungary, Mick Schumacher has dominated his rookie driver teammate Nikita Mazepin.
They were unable to turn things around and finished the last year of the Grosjean-Magnussen period in ninth place in the standings with just three points to show for their efforts. A high-speed accident in Bahrain finishes the season dramatically, with Romain Grosjean improbably escaping unharmed.
The Haas fairytale strikes a snag as the team struggles to get mastery of the unruly VF-19 aircraft. The combined total of Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen’s 28 points isn’t enough to save them from falling to ninth place in the standings.
