Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Haas will hand For­mula 2 racer Louis Dele­traz his first For­mula 1 run in the post-sea­son test in Abu Dhabi later this month. The 2015 cham­pion in For­mula Re­nault 2.0’s North­ern Euro­pean Cup, and run­ner-up in the now-de­funct FR3.5 a year later, Dele­traz is 11th in the stand­ings in his sec­ond full sea­son in F2. The Swiss racer, son of for­mer F1 driver Jean-de­nis, will pi­lot the team’s cur­rent-spec VF-18 on the sec­ond day of the three-day test. “I’m grate­ful to both Gene Haas and Gun­ther Steiner for giv­ing me the op­por­tu­nity to test with Haas F1 team,” he said. “It’s the per­fect way to end my 2018 sea­son, one in which I’ve con­tin­ued to de­velop and show­case my cre­den­tials.”
