The Haas Formula 1 team has officially signed Louis Deletraz as its simulator driver for the 2019 season.

Deletraz tested with Haas at the post-season test in Abu Dhabi in 2018, posting 117 laps in what was his first outing in an F1 car. 

This year, Deletraz is competing in the FIA Formula 2 championship and picked up two fifth-place finishes at the opening round in Bahrain last month.

"My first F1 test with Haas in November was a dream come true and I have enjoyed a good relationship with the team ever since," said Deletraz.

"I'm pleased that they've been happy with my work and I feel honoured and grateful that the team want to continue working with me by contributing to their simulator programme throughout the year.

"The sim plays a substantial role in the development of an F1 car because it allows the team to check the car and any updates.

"Driving it is an important job and, as someone that is determined to join the F1 grid in the near future, this work will allow me to continue learning about F1 and pushing towards my ultimate target."

Deletraz will be back in action this weekend in Baku for the second round of the season.
