  • Haas Unveils VF-19 Formula 1 Car And Brand New Livery

The Haas F1 livery launch had a very awkward moment when the presenter asked Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean to come forward and unveil the new auto. The American outfit brings back the black and gold colour scheme that reflects its new title sponsor.

"As we have seen already this season, our own continued push for performance has delivered on-track, and I have no doubt that the platform we provide for Rich Energy will translate into equally favourable dividends".

Both Haas F1 drivers Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen were present at the event to reveal the new livery to the press with Haas team principal Guenther Steiner and Rich Energy CEO William Storey alongside. The colours returned to F1 between 2011 and 2015 without the tobacco company's branding.

The new livery replaces the grey and red colours of Haas owner Gene Haas's company which branded the vehicle previously.

"It's an ambition. In racing they are very good, but you never know".

The covers came of the new Haas VF-19 on Thursday at London's Royal Automobile Club, with drivers Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean on hand to talk about the vehicle.

"We have a bit more fuel, which is a nice thing", said the Dane, speaking at the launch on Thursday of Haas' 2019 contender.

Drivers Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen were present at the unveiling of the 2019 VF-19 vehicle and its new sponsor, pulling off the covers at the Royal Automobile Club on Thursday. The black and gold livery and Rich Energy sponsorship might ultimately have gone to the Williams F1 team this year, with Storey admitting that talks with the British team took place.

Haas F1 was formed ahead of the 2016 F1 championship and was at the bottom end of the constructors standings, finishing eighth in its first two years.

The Haas Formula 1 team has a new look and title sponsor for the 2019 season. The team though did make considerable progress last season finishing fifth in the overall rankings.

Haas were unrestricted by testing regulations until the time the team entered an official season. The 2019 F1 season starts on March 14, 2019, in Australia.
