Haas reveals first images of the 2024 season car

-

The presentations of the 2024 cars from Formula 1 officially started. This Friday, the Haas revealed the first images of its new single-seater, with the usual sobriety that the North American team adopts on these occasions.

Before discovering the VF-24 In an environment more conducive to close observation, ‘renders’ were shown on the website, allowing the new paintwork of the future car to be highlighted.

Compared to the color scheme the American team used on its 2023 car, the new livery is not a substantial change, with the main area of ​​change being the top of the nose.

It’s now predominantly black compared to last year’s white, which makes the VF-24 look dark from all angles compared to its predecessor.

The VF-24 will hit the track next week, on Sunday, February 11, for a shakedown at Silverstone, in the United Kingdom. A second shakedown will be held in Bahrain, two days before the start of pre-season testing at the Sakhir circuit, scheduled for February 21-23.

Haas is preparing to contest its ninth season in F1 and is approaching it with a major change, announced last month. With Gunther Steiner out of contention, the team will try to recover with Ayao Komatsu in charge. The team finished tenth and last in the constructors’ championship in 2023, with just 12 points and just one top-10 finish in the last 13 GPs contested.

The boss may have changed, but the model has not. The Haas VF-24 is based on technical collaboration with Ferrari for a large part of the elements that the regulations allow to be shared and within the limits of what the Scuderia is willing to provide to your partner. The Italian manufacturer also remains the engine manufacturer for Haas, which has never seen a different power unit since its arrival in 2016.

The same stability applies to pilot training, which was renewed for the second year in a row. Kevin Magnussen is ready to compete in his seventh season in Haas colors, his third in a row since being sidelined in favor of Nikita Mazepin in 2021. Nico Hülkenberg, who returned to Formula 1 last year and scored nine of Haas’ 12 points in the last year, is about to embark on his second journey with the team.

“I look forward to seeing the VF-24 racing and racing – a feeling I know I share with our partners and, indeed, the entire team,” said Haas owner Gene Haas.

“With Nico Hulkenberg and Kevin Magnussen, we also know we have a great driver duo behind the wheel.

“Their experience will again be invaluable as we develop our program throughout the year.

“We took advantage of the off-season to implement processes to improve and ultimately improve our overall performance. We’ll see how we are soon.”
