Haas F1 to make driver announcement on Tuesday

New Haas F1 have called a press conference for Tuesday to make a a driver announcement at its American base next Tuesday.

Lotus speedy Romain Grosjean is highly linked with Haas F1 race seat, while Esteban Gutierrez has also been hotly tipped for a drive given Haas’ technical partnership with Ferrari.

“We are a new team, we need to be conscious that we need some known quantities,” team principal Guenther Steiner said recently.

“Everything else is new. You know, the whole team is new people put together, the first car we make… it’s a lot of unknowns.

“So we need a known quantity in there which in the end can tell us, ‘Hey guys, I think the car is good, but this part of the team doesn’t work,’ or, ‘The team works good – I’ve got a good relationship with my race engineers – but the car isn’t good.’”

Haas will make their F1 debut in 2016 and will be based in both North Carolina, alongside their Sprint Cup winning Nascar team, and in Banbury.
