Haas makes early F1 debut as Ferrari sponsor
Haas, F1’s new team for 2016, has arrived in formula one earlier than expected.

Ferrari announced on Thursday that the logo of Gene Haas’ automotive machine business will begin to feature on the sidepods of the 2014 Ferrari this weekend at Silverstone.

The sponsor deal, which surely precedes a technical partnership with Ferrari for Haas’ new US-based F1 team, will last all the way to the end of 2015.

Haas’ team will then be set to debut in 2016, surely with a V6 Ferrari power unit and gearbox.

Ferrari team boss Marco Mattiacci confirmed that the Italian team and Haas have been “exploring a number of potential areas of collaboration”.

“The partnership marks Haas Automation’s entry to the world of formula one,” Ferrari announced, “prior to it becoming title sponsor of Gene Haas’ team when it enters the sport in 2016.” (GMM)
