Speaking to Sky Sports television, Haas F1 team Principal Günther Steiner confirmed that the team was on timetable with its crash test and car debut before mooting a hesitant launch on February 21.

“It’s only ten weeks, which is not a lot, but the work is going to plan,” Steiner said.

“We are pretty happy, everything seems to come together. The car is the last thing you bring in and the production planning is going well.

“We will start to produce a car in mid-January, we will do the crash test at the beginning of January and then we will start to put one together.

“We will roll it out hopefully the day before the testing starts.”

Haas elected experienced Romain Grosjean and Esteban Gutierrez for debut season.
