Haas changes name of Formula 1 team
2 September 2014 – Gene Haas has altered the name of his new F1 team, which is set to join the grid in 2016.
The American's squad, based in Kannapolis, North Carolina, had secured an entry under the Haas Formula banner, but it will now be known as Haas F1 Team after he moved to bring it more in line with the top echelon.
"Haas F1 Team automatically conveys our place among the pinnacle of motorsports," Haas, who founded Haas Automation in 1983, said of the name tweak. "When you hear 'F1' you know exactly what it is – a global racing series that showcases the latest technology and attracts the best talent in engineering and design."
Haas F1 Team has also launched its official website, alongside Facebook and Twitter channels.
