American F1 team – Haas F1 looks set to use a yellow livery for 2016 F1 season. In recent days, the new American team has been practicing pitstops at its factory with a black-liveried show car.
But La Gazzetta dello Sport, the authoritative Italian source, says the actual race livery next year will be yellow, like the Ferrari logo.
Owner Gene Haas, however, rejected claims the team is little more than a Ferrari ‘B team’.
“I keep getting asked that and my answer is unequivocal: no,” said the Nascar co-owner. “Haas F1 has an unique image and we will have our own way of working, even if Ferrari is an important technical partner.”
Looking good, guys. First pit stop practice with our showcar is in the books. ? pic.twitter.com/bamCZYxota

And team boss Gunther Steiner played down suggestions Haas F1 is skirting too close to the regulations, after Mercedes recently queried the close relationship between the new team and Ferrari.
“We are only doing what is permitted by the regulations,” he insisted.
