'Haas F1 Team to have yellow livery in 2016'

Haas looks set to use a yellow livery in formula one next year. In recent days, the new American team has been practicing pitstops at its factory with a black-liveried show car. But La Gazzetta dello Sport, the authoritative Italian source, says the actual race livery next year will be yellow, like the Ferrari logo.

Owner Gene Haas, however, rejected claims the team is little more than a Ferrari 'B team'. "I keep getting asked that and my answer is unequivocal: no," said the Nascar co-owner. "Haas has an unique image and we will have our own way of working, even if Ferrari is an important technical partner."

And team boss Gunther Steiner played down suggestions Haas is skirting too close to the regulations, after Mercedes recently queried the close relationship between the new team and Ferrari. "We are only doing what is permitted by the regulations," he insisted. (GMM)

  • Looks like we'll be having two yellow cars next year, unless Lotus-Renault/Renault will race with the Lotus livery for one more year. And four blue cars, two dark blue and two medium blue, assuming Force India's Aston Martin deal is happening and they decided on that preliminary blue livery, and assuming no other team take on a blue livery.
    I think Haas will be forced to differentiate later on in one way or another, but as for now all they can do is hope that the parts Ferrari make are competitive, even on their own car.

    I think Haas has mentioned this before about choosing a yellow livery. But it was because they wanted more color in F1, nothing to do with Ferrari.
    Whatever the livery will be, it will have it's reasons, but I'm pretty sure red is out of the question ;)
