Haas F1 Team will peel back the covers on its 2020 contender in pit lane ahead of the opening day of pre-season testing in Spain.
The American squad took to social media to confirm that the VF-20 will be unveiled on February 19, shortly before on-track running gets underway in Barcelona.
Haas struggled during 2019, scoring just 28 points and finishing ninth in the constructors’ championship.
That compared with 93 points and fifth position the previous year, leaving Gunther Steiner to describe its 2019 contender as the ‘strangest car’ he’d ever worked with.
Haas’ launch makes it the eighth team to confirm its plans, and will join Alfa Romeo in an understated launch on the morning of the opening test.
Two pre-season tests, both to be held in Barcelona, precede the 2020 Formula 1 season which kicks off in Melbourne on March 12-15.
