In the Hungarian Grand Prix, the Haas car will see many changes. According to unofficial information from the F1 paddock, the Americans even copied the Ferrari car. Both designs should be confusingly similar.

For the past few weeks it has been clear that Haas will show a significantly modified car during the Hungarian GP. Unfortunately, production delays combined with a lack of funds made the Americans only one new car package has been developed so far. Kevin Magnussen will get it at the Hungaroring, and Mick Schumacher will have to use the old version.

According to “Auto Motor und Sport”, after modernization, the Haas car will be described as a “white Ferrari”. The engineers of the American team had to copy the aerodynamic solutions that we can see on the Ferrari machine – the F1-75 model from the beginning of the 2022 season.

“This is a big change package. Gunther Steiner told us it would be visible. It would be a completely different car. I heard that we will only see a white Ferrari in Hungary,” wrote journalist Michael Schmidt.

If Haas accelerates significantly as a result of the overhaul, the scandal of too close a relationship with Ferrari could resurface in F1. The technical director of the American team is Simone Resta, who previously worked for the Italian team for many years.

In addition, a special Haasa center was established in Maranello, where some Ferrari employees went. He had to leave his current employer, because the Italians, after the introduction of budget limits in Formula 1, had to reduce work and leave other workers.

F1 rivals are troubled by the fact that Haas buys some components directly from Ferrari, rather than designing or manufacturing them in-house. The American team is currently seventh in the constructors’ standings. He has 34 points.
