Haas officially unveils 2022 car – “It’s been a tremendous effort by everyone involved”

Haas have officially unveiled their 2022 car, the VF-22, and spoken at great length regarding their latest creation.

Haas used to battle it out in the midfield a few years ago. Since then, their decline has been shocking to see. The 2021 season was their version of rock-bottom, as they were dead last in both championships with exactly zero points scored.

There were few positives to take from the recently-concluded season. With the team pouring all their resources into 2022, there may be light at the end of the tunnel. That may be in the form of what they have released.

Haas have officially unveiled their 2022 car, and have pinned all their hopes on the VF-22.

“It’s that time of year where you’re naturally optimistic that the hard work and effort of everyone will translate to a competitive entry on track,” the team said during the launch, as quoted by GP Fans.

“We made the decision back in 2020 to really channel time and resources into the VF-22, foregoing anything track-related for 2021 – which wasn’t easy to watch. Hopefully that decision bears fruit and we return to challenging for points and taking something from the weekends.”

Team principal Guenther Steiner commented on his team’s new car, saying they were all targeting a return to where they were in 2018.

“It’s exciting to be at the point where we know the VF-22 will be on track shortly,” he said.

“We all know what the team is capable of, we’ve proved that in the past, and with this new car, born out of a completely new set of regulations and with our new design team in place, I’m confident we can showcase again that we can compete on weekends.

“It’s been a tremendous effort by everyone involved and now comes the fun part of getting the new car to the circuit and dialling in all the elements.

“Last season was a long one but I’m confident that 2022 will see us back in the mix with the VF-22,” he concluded.
