American youngster Santino Ferrucci will continue to serve as a development driver for Haas in 2017.
Ferrucci tested for the team at the post-British Grand Prix test earlier this year and also competed in GP3 where he finished 12th for DAMS.
"[Santino] will stay as the development driver," Autosport quotes team boss Guenther Steiner. "t's a long-term project, we don't exactly what we're going to do next year with him because as you know testing is still up in the air."
"We know the tests we are doing but we still need to decide when we use the rookie days and who we put in it."
"We also need to decide if we are going to do some FP1s with him or not. Over the winter, we're going to sit down with him and see what we're doing."
