Kevin Magnussen and Nico Hulkenberg: Experienced Haas drivers

Haas have announced that the VF-24, their 2024 challenger, will be launched on Friday 2 February – with their new livery to be unveiled then.

While McLaren have already unveiled their new livery, Haas were the final team to confirm their launch date but will be the second team to break cover on their car’s colours for 2024.

A time of 9am EST [2pm GMT] has been confirmed for the Haas launch, which will be the team’s first of the post-Guenther Steiner era.

Haas unveil February 2 launch date for VF-24

Haas finished bottom of the Constructors’ standings last season as their 2023 car struggled to maintain its tyre life during races, despite promising one-lap pace.

This has led to significant changes behind the scenes, not least the non-renewal of the contract of long-serving team principal Steiner, as Ayao Komatsu steps up to take the reins for the season ahead.

There is consistency in the driving department, however, with Nico Hulkenberg and Kevin Magnussen confirmed to be behind the wheel for the team once again in 2024. recommends
