Af­ter an im­pres­sive de­but in 2016, the US team with the in­no­va­tive cus­tomer model, must seek to ad­dress their re­li­a­bil­ity is­sues

F1 Racing - - TEAM BY TEAM -

WHAT’S NEW ? Kevin Mag­nussen is newly ar­rived from Re­nault and, hav­ing been crit­i­cised pub­licly for his lack of ef­fort, needs to show more ap­pli­ca­tion at his new team. As last year, the team’s chas­sis has been de­signed and man­u­fac­tured by sin­gle-seater spe­cial­ists Dal­lara, with the new-spec en­gine and non-listed parts com­ing from Fer­rari.

F1 RA CING’S VER­DICT Even if they iron out their un­re­li­a­bil­ity is­sues, their lim­ited re­source means it’s hard to imag­ine Haas im­prov­ing on last year’s eighth place.
