Haas F1 Team On Why It Didn’t Hire Nico Hülkenberg: We Need To Fix Our Car First

Renault Formula One driver Nico Hülkenberg is currently out of a ride next year, since with only 20 cars, F1 silly season is basically a prolonged game of musical chairs.

Haas is back with a brand new look. With new backing from Rich Energy, the American-ish team has a fighting chance at owning the best livery of the season already, and this is the first 2019-spec racer to make its public display.
