The 2024 F1
season is right around the corner, and teams are starting to unveil their cars for the new season, with Haas
being the first one to do so.
February will be a very busy month for F1 fans. First, all of the teams will showcase their challengers for the 2024 season, and soon after that, they will move to Sakhir for the pre-season testing between February 21st and 23rd, with the Bahrain Grand Prix
weekend starting on February 29th.
The team announced the reveal date
of their new car more than two weeks ago, and the day came on February 2nd, 2024, as the team revealed the car that Nico Hulkenberg
and Kevin Magnussen
will be driving in 2024.
They will get to drive the car already on February 11th at Silverstone Circuit, and the team seemingly made some changes, including the livery, which now includes much more of a black color.
The team fitted multiple sponsor decals onto their livery, including the likes of Haas Automation, Haas Tooling, Palm Angels, Chipotle, OAKBERRY, Tricorp, TravisMathew, Alpinestars, and Pirelli.
Chairman of the team, Gene Haas, was really excited to unveil the new car, but he's mostly looking forward to seeing the car on the race track, competing for valuable points.
"I’m looking forward to seeing the VF-24 running and racing – a sentiment I know I share with our partners and indeed the entire team."
On top of that, the 71-year-old mentioned both of the team's drivers, Hulkenberg and Magnussen, who they believe to drive the car to the point positions, something that will be one of the main goals for the team in 2024.
"In Nico Hulkenberg and Kevin Magnussen, we also know we’ve got a great pair of drivers behind the wheel, their experience will prove invaluable again as we develop our program through the year. We’ve used the off-season to put the processes in place to be better and ultimately improve our overall performance. Soon we get to see how we’re doing."
