Things are very quiet with Haas. What I can find says there is no drama and that they are on schedule for 2017. They have passed crash tests and expect the 2017 car it to make its track debut a few days prior (filming days) to the start of official testing in Barcelona. No mention of a formal PR event to unveil the car yet. There have been a few shots on the team's Instragram account in which you can see bits of the 2017 car. It seems the photos are from K. Mag's seat fitting at the Dallara factory.

https://www.instagram.com/haasf1team/

I assume the suspension is still sourced from Ferrari. I wonder how much of the 2017 car was designed in house vs. Dallara. Given the info above (seat fitting at Dallara), I assume the 2017 car is being produced by Dallara for Haas.

good timing on the bump of this thread...came across this article on reddit this morning written by one of the people who worked on the Haas team branding and livery and wasnt sure where to share it.

its more of a personal story/journey but some interesting bits about the process that i found both interesting.

Thats a great read. I generally liked the Haas livery, but actually haven't put much thought into it. Some of the photos from the top look better than the sides. This one photo from the article to me really shows how it all came together. The car, the uniforms, the equipment, the markings on the floor. Simple, clean and all very well done IMHO...

I have to say it's simplicity makes it the best looking car on the grid behind the Martini Williams

obviously the Martini Williams comes first!

but yeah, it really was a good read. i like how it highlights how an 'outsider' can bring in fresh ideas into a sport that can be, at times, far too insulated for its own good.

changing the fonts on the pit board so its easier for drivers to read at speed and borrowing an idea from Nascar to put the names of the mechanics on their uniforms are simple but great ideas to bring into F1.

im overstating my praise, but in its own way, this article makes an excellent case why small and new teams with new ideas belong on the grid.

Bump. Another team thread.

A quick refresh:

YearWCCPointsBest finish
20168th295th place
20178th476th place
20185th934th place
20196th156th place
2019 so far...

Since the last race they have overtaken Alfa Romeo in the championship.

Decent peddlers, but not outstanding. Decent car, but not outstanding. 5th last year, currently 6th. Is this team destined to be the median? Perhaps their model will always lead to that?

Much better performance in Spain, although not quite the RBR challenging pace they were promising us

Time for a bump I think.

Early season form - Disappeared. Race Pace - Gone. Still OK in qualifying. The "upgrades" to the car seem to have done absolutely nothing for their race pace. Cant get the tyres into the right operating window it seems.

Drivers who have hit each other more often than not in recent races. Embarrassing radio spat with Magnussen. Grosjean still has no spacial awareness and even crashed in the pit lane.

Lead sponsor drops out with ridiculous online parting comments.

It certainly has been an eventful season so far. In the early rounds it looked like Haas would be in the running for 4th best team. Now it looks like Williams might be the only team that they will beat.

Ocon is the obvious choice if they wanted to replace one of their drivers, but he was often colliding with Perez when they were teammates. Problems obviously run deeper than the drivers, but having a pairing that do not collide with each other would at least be a step in the right direction.

Trouble in staying within the narrow tire operating windows seems to be the thinking at Haas...

Figthing with a sponsor, drivers fighting each other, showing fight over 14th spot, colourfully angry team boss...its borderline disfunctional but i like it.
