Romain Grosjean will drive Haas' new car on the opening day of pre-season testing later this month. The Frenchman enters his third year with the American team, and will be joined once again by Kevin Magnussen, who linked up with the squad at the start of 2017.

The pair will swap duties throughout the opening four days of testing, with Grosjean driving the car on days one and three of the first week. On the second week of testing, Magnussen will take the car out on days one and three, with Grosjean signing off the two weeks on March 9.

The new car will be launched online before the winter tests commence. A date is yet to be announced.

A Haas F1 Team spokesperson told F1Today.net: "Haas F1 Team is planning a digital presentation before the first winter test starts and its date will be released at a later stage. On the morning of February 26th we will present the car to enable photographers and film crews to shoot visual material and pictures."

  • 2018 is really time for Haas to step up their game or they could find themselves at the back of the grid. We can reasonably expect that McLaren, Renault, and Sauber are all going to be much better in 2018. Furthermore, Haas has made it a habit to run out of development steam by around. That being said, Toro Rosso is in for a treat with the Honda PU, so maybe it would take a lot for Haas to finish behind Toro Rosso.
