While Haas has the option to prepare a provisional car for some running later this year, the team has ruled out doing any testing until 2016.

“We don’t want to make a car [for testing this year]. If you make a car for a few months’ time, then by next year it will be old,” team Principal Gunther Steiner told Autosport.

“We want to keep on developing. And all of the parts we will be getting from Ferrari, we will not have them before next year.”

Haas could debut with Yellow livery

Team owner Gene Haas has suggested its cars could be yellow. “We would like to have something with a corporate image, but on the other hand you want a car that you can see,” he said. “After a while all these silver or gray cars become kind of the same.

“Everybody’s gone with all these rainbow colors and a solid color would be something easily definable. You’d like to be seen. I like yellow – personally, I think a solid yellow would be nice.”
