Haas reveals new livery

The Haas F1 team has today revealed their new 2019 livery at an event at the Royal Automobile Club in London.

The new livery is a stark change from previous seasons as Rich Energy becomes a title sponsor, the new black and gold scheme matching that of the drinks company.

While the livery reveal used a 2018 show car Haas also released images of the true VF-19 car online at the same time. (see below)

In an online press release founder Gene Haas said:

“This is the time of the season when you hope you’ve got designs right and you can be competitive straight away. The new car looks distinctive, not only in terms of its colour scheme but also with the new regulations in play. Hopefully, those design changes brought in for 2019 will improve the racing on-track, and more importantly give us a shot at making more of an impact at each Grand Prix.”

Haas team principle Guenther Steiner added:

“It’s important that we keep progressing as a team, and this season is no different. Our partnership with Rich Energy is another positive example of moving forward as an organization. We’re pleased to see their colours on the VF-19, we welcome them as they join our valued partner group in utilizing Formula One as a global marketing platform. While 2018 delivered our best season-to-date, the year showed, sometimes sharply, that we still have areas to improve on as a team. On-track, our push for performance started early with the VF-19, our next step is to get to Spain and utilize our time there wisely to prepare for Australia.”
