Haas F1 Has Gone Black and Gold

Big changes for the only American team on the F1 circuit. With a new sponsor comes a new livery. Rich Energy has partnered with Haas for 2019. The British energy drink company started their partnership with Haas in October 2018. Since Lotus left F1 I have missed seeing a black and gold livery on the circuit. Hopefully this new livery will see the team keep improving from their 5th place finish in the constructors championship in 2018.

Gene Haas said in a statement:

“This is the time of the season when you hope you’ve got designs right and you can be competitive straight away,” said Gene Haas, founder of Haas Automation and chairman of Rich Energy Haas F1 Team. “The new car looks distinctive, not only in terms of its color 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.”

The images released show the new seasons regulation changes.

From the Haas F1 site:

The simplified front-wing is evident, now 200mm wider and 20mm higher – designed to allow drivers to follow each other more closely and increase the possibility of overtaking. Similarly, the rear wing has been made simpler, as well as 20mm higher and 100mm wider, to aid slipstreaming and promote closer racing. Smaller, repositioned barge boards are also visible, reduced in height by 150mm and moved forward by 100mm, these have been designed to improve air flow from the front wing making them less aerodynamically disruptive.

The 2019 season is showing to be an exciting one for the American team. If the trend stays the same, Haas should see another successful season working their way up the in the Constructors Championship standings.
