New look Haas cars will line up on the grid for their second Monaco Grand Prix, doing away with much of the red that has distinguished the cars since their debut last year in Australia.
The team said in their preview of the weekend in Monte Carlo: “In addition to keeping up with the Ferraris, Mercedes and Red Bulls at Monaco, one must also keep up with the Joneses. That’s why Haas F1 Team is bringing an updated livery to its already quick and ever-improving Haas VF-17.”
“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.”
Team chief Guenther Steiner explained, “It is for the whole year now. With the change in the size of the numbers and its positioning, we looked into making the entire car a little more visible.”
