Tech F1i – Haas' F1 homecoming in Austin


Haas’ brake woes have been well-documented, especially on Romain Grosjean’s side of the garage. “The brakes are very high up in the list of things affecting the drivers’mental well-being,” Rob Taylor explained in Racecar Engineering. “So it is important to get things working as they want, but there is a 24-week lead-time on brake material. Your choices are very limited in that area.”

Other novelties spotted in Texas included revised floor, rear wing pillars and front wing for the Ferrari SF70H, a modified engine cover on the Sauber C36, a new front wing on the McLaren MCL32, as well as tweaks to the Williams FW40’s monkey seat winglet.
