Steiner: Ferrari deal an honour for Haas F1
3 September 2014 – Haas F1 Team Principal Guenther Steiner has said it is an "honour" for the outfit to join forces with Ferrari.
Confirmation that the American squad will use power units supplied by the Scuderia came on Wednesday, and while the "multi-year agreement" was not a surprise, given Haas became one of Ferrari's official suppliers earlier this year, the announcement is still a major boost for the fledgling team.
"These are exciting times for everyone at Haas F1 Team and we are honoured to have a partner in Scuderia Ferrari supporting our efforts," Steiner confirmed.
"When it comes to Formula 1, no one matches Scuderia Ferrari's knowledge, technical expertise and sheer determination."
The squad, based in Kannapolis, North Carolina, is due to make its debut in the sport in 2016.
"We understand there is some heavy lifting ahead of us," Steiner added, "but we know that with Ferrari's technical support, we will develop a team of talented people at an exceptional pace so that we are ready to race competitively in 2016.
"We are focused on the future and look forward to what is ahead for Haas F1 Team."
