Many have been wondering where the Haas car has been since the team revealed renders of the car over two weeks ago. Some even wondered if they were falling behind on their development of their 2022 F1 car while other teams pushed ahead such as Mercedes and Ferrari. But now the VF22 has left the pits to start its first proper shakedown in Barcelona.
And we are GO!

This is the first Haas car to be designed in its new facility in Maranello with its new technical partner, Ferrari. They voted not to develop their 2021 car so they could put everything into the 2022 car, so we’re expecting a lot from this new design.
Sitting behind the wheels of the Haas duo will be returning drivers Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin.
