Haas driver announcement on Tuesday


Haas will on Tuesday announce their driver line-up for their debut campaign with Romain Grosjean expected to take one of the seats.

The American team, who won the race to become F1's 11th team, have called a press conference for Tuesday.

It will take place at 3pm GMT at Haas' headquarters in North Carolina.

Lotus driver Grosjean is expected to take one of the seats while a Ferrari test driver, Esteban Gutierrez or Jean-Eric Vergne, is believed to be set for the other.

Having signed a technical partnership with Ferrari for the 2016 season, Haas have stated on several occasions that a Scuderia driver is likely to be in their line-up.

Of the two, Gutierrez is thoughts to be the favourite giving his backing from Mexican telecommunications giant Telmex.

Fans, though, will have to wait until Tuesday for confirmation.
