Haas F1 Team's 2018 charger breaks cover!

Haas VF 18

Haas F1 Team's 2018 race vehicle broke cover today across the organization's social media platforms, and is expected to build upon the 47 points scored by last year's auto during the 2017 season. Gene Haas, founder of Haas Automation, added "F1" to the name to unofficially designate it as the company's "Very First One".

For 2018 the FIA has made the halo safety device mandatory, and Haas' VF-18 is our first look at how the new cars will incorporate with the divisive addition.

"The total minimum weight of the vehicle increased because of the halo, and there's a higher centre of gravity simply because of the halo's position".

He said: "We eliminated a lot of the variables where we knew we were weak". But, everyone is in the same boat.

The regulations, apart from some changes, haven't changed dramatically from 2017 to 2017, and this means the VF-18 isn't a radically new auto. We got the auto as light as possible to carry more ballast.

With few other rule changes for 2018, Steiner said the auto was "less about reinvention and more about refinement". Instead, Haas says the focus on the auto included overcoming the aerodynamic and handling weakness that hindered progress through the a year ago.

Considering that the regulations have remained mostly the same from 2017 to 2018, we may likely see minimal changes to other teams' vehicles apart from the new halo configuration.

And although P8 is a reasonable position given that the team's newcomer status, Haas wants better this season.

The corporate colors of Haas Automation were carried over to the VF-18.

As with previous machines, the VF-18 relies heavily on technology from Ferrari, including power unit and transmission.

"The livery is a little bit of a return to what we had on our first auto, the VF-16", Steiner added.

The Haas VF-18 will make it's on track debut at the Barcelona test February 26-March 1 before heading to Australia season-opening Melbourne Grand Prix March 25. The team has finished eighth in the constructors' championship in 2016 and "17".

The US-based squad often faced issues regarding tyre performance last season, while Ferrari became the first team to pose a significant threat to Mercedes in the title race since the V6 tubo-hybrid era began in 2014.
