Haas F1 Team will get the opportunity to shake down  its 2017 challenger before pre-season testing gets underway in Barcelona on February 27.

The US outfit's brand new VF-17 will be rolled out for a film day scheduled at the Circuit de Catalunya on February 25, two days before the first official day of pre-season testing.

It's probable that Romain Grosjean will sample the car although Kevin Magnussen should also be on hand, as well as the odd spy camera eager to get a world exclusive picture of the contender.

Other teams are likely to follow suit with film days, but Sauber is already scheduled for a run on February 22.

Teams are only allowed 100km of running on film days while cars will take to the track using Pirelli demonstration tyres.
