Haas will not take part in the two-day post-Hungarian GP test, opting instead to use that time to “analyse the data” from their recent Pirelli outing.

Following the Hungarian Grand Prix in July, the Formula 1 teams have a two-day test scheduled at the Budapest track.

They will, however, be running without Haas.

“Instead of participating in the test in Hungary, Haas is using the time to analyse the data it received from its recent Pirelli tyre test at Silverstone, from past grands prix and from our simulator work,” said team principal Gunther Steiner.

“Between the data our drivers have been able to gather that is directly applicable to their driving styles in our cars, and this current run of five races in six weeks, we determined our time was best spent at the factory.”
