New livery for Haas F1 Team after removing Russian flag colours.
Haas revealed a plain-liveried VF-22 on Friday during the final day of the first pre-season Formula 1 test at Barcelona.
Haas’s car has appeared in a revised livery after the team removed their Uralkali sponsorship logos and Russian flag colour scheme.
The car now has a largely plain white body and blacks wings. The logos of German web hosting company 1&1 remain on the car, as well as those of the team’s suppliers.
The team confirmed yesterday it would make the change following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. It has also removed the Uralkali logos from its facilities.
Nikita Mazepin and Mick Schumacher are due to drive for the team in the last day of this week’s three-day test at Circuit de Catalunya.
It left only the Haas branding on the sidepods and rear wing as Nikita Mazepin took to the circuit for the morning’s four hour session.
The decision to remove Uralkali branding comes against a backdrop of an escalating situation in the Ukraine after Russian forces invaded the nation.
Speaking on Thursday, Sebastian Vettel stated that he would boycott September’s Russian Grand Prix regardless of whether the sport chose to continue with the event or not.
Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali last night met with teams where it’s understood the Russian situation was discussed.
As yet, not comment has been made on the outcome of that meeting.
Haas team boss Guenther Steiner is set to face the media later today.
