Familiar faces are beginning to line up at the 2016 entrant Haas. Team boss Gunther Steiner, formerly of Jaguar and Red Bull, has appointed former Marussia chief Dave O'Neill to be team manager.

Former Red Bull man Rob Taylor will be chief designer, and aerodynamics boss Ben Agathangelou comes straight from technical partner Ferrari, according to Germany's Auto Motor und Sport on Tuesday. "He (Agathangelou) and Taylor have already made a 60 per cent wind tunnel model" of the Ferrari-powered 2015 car, correspondent Michael Schmidt wrote.

The report added that the 2016 Haas car is based on this year's Ferrari, and will be entirely wind tunnel-tested at Maranello. "Although we have come a long way," said Steiner, "there is still a long way to go to the first grand prix in 2016. Our technical partnership with Ferrari is helping us build the car and the team. It is a new and different way to be in formula one," he added. (GMM)
