Haas F1 reveals revised livery for rest of 2017 season

Haas F1 team reveals the modified livery for Monaco Grand Prix and the rest of the season, apparently to help with visibility of large race numbers and drivers’ names following the recent FIA restriction.

The American F1 outfit has changed much of the red parts of its livery with grey. Haas F1 explained: “Sleek tones of gray have replaced the red portions of the car, sans for the angular red accent mark at the rear which has been a trademark of Haas F1 Team since its debut last season. It’s a styling upgrade for a locale where upgraded style is a way of life.”

Haas F1 team boss Guenther Steiner confirmed that it was not just for Monaco.

“It is for the whole year now,” he said. “With the change in the size of the numbers and its positioning, we looked into making the entire car a little more visible.”

About the challenge of the street event he said: “For me, Monaco is a race like all the others. We’re there to perform and score points. However, it’s always special due to the glitz and the glamour. The biggest difference with Monaco is the distance between everything. You have to walk a lot, so I would say it’s one of the most logistically challenging circuits.

“And during the race it’s quite intense, because if you make even a small mistake you can be in the wall. Overtaking is difficult too, so there is more pressure on Saturday during qualifying than there’s actually on Sunday, because by Sunday the positions are set and unless something special happens, you end up where you start. Saturday will be intense.”
