The Haas F1 Team is still aiming for a 2016 entry into Formula One and they’ve taken a step closer to being ready on time. Ferrari have confirmed a deal with the new entrant to supply them with power units for 2016 in a multi-year partnership.
Team Principal at Ferrari, Marco Mattiacci, said: “A few months ago we joined forces with Gene Haas on a commercial level and this is the natural next step of our growing relationship. While our objective is to reinforce our power unit development programme for all our customer teams, we believe this new partnership has the potential to evolve beyond the traditional role of supplying our power unit and all related technical services.”
Haas himself gets a little bit poetical about the association, saying: “There is no team in Formula One more accomplished than Scuderia Ferrari, and no team with more history. They’ve been a part of Formula One from the beginning, and now they’ll be a part of Haas F1 Team’s beginning too.”
