Haas launches its first ever F1 car
F1's latest staff Haas revealed its first automobile on Sunday, ahead of its first people going at Barcelona on Monday.
The Ferrari-driven competition, named VF16, is the effect of over two years of work in the American outfit as it enters grand prix racing for the very first time.
The source of naming the automobile "VF16" dates back straight back to the first CNC device made by Haas Automation, the VF1, established in 1988.
The "V" means vertical, which will be an industry standard appellation to get a vertical factory.
Gene Haas, creator of Haas Automation, added "Formula 1" to the title to unofficially designate it as the firm's "Really First One".
At the same time as being driven by Ferrari, the group whose European headquarters are in Banbury also offers a close technical cooperation with all the Italian marque, and utilizes the Maranello-outfit's windtunnel.
"Our aim with this particular automobile would be to score points," group manager Guenther Steiner stated. "First, we must go out there and show that people are able to get the job done, that we are able to complete races, that we have been honored by the fans as well as other groups in the paddock. Subsequently, we should score points. This is the best aim."
The newest automobile is likely to be driven by Esteban Gutierrez, who's returning to Formula 1 after annually as Ferrari test-driver, and Romain Grosjean who has joined in the previous Lotus team.
