The Haas F1 team is one of Formula 1's newest teams on the grid, having has previous success in NASCAR in the United States of America. Now, the team undergo a new chapter with Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin.

How the Haas F1 dream started

Gene Haas established Haas F1 during the early part of F1's turbo-hybrid era. Originally, Haas were set to make their debut in the pinnacle of motorsport in 2015, but this was postponed to the start of the 2016 Formula 1 season.

Guenther Steiner has been Haas' team principal since the team began in 2016 and is well-known for his charismatic, no nonsense personality. Steiner was a star during Netflix's Drive To Survive Series when his anger and swearing caught the eye of many F1 fans.

The team headquarters is in Kannapolis, North Carolina, United States, alongside sister team and NASCAR entrant Stewart-Haas Racing, though the two teams are separate entities. Haas also have a forward base in Banbury, UK, for the purpose of turning cars around between races during the European part of the calendar whilst their power units are supplied by Ferrari in Italy.

An impressive start for Haas

Haas became the first American constructor to compete in F1 since the unrelated Haas Lola outfit raced in the 1985 and 1986 seasons. The 2016 Australian GP saw Haas make their F1 debut and it went brilliantly.

Romain Grosjean started down in 19th in Albert Park but climbed up the order and took advantage of a red flag to finish in sixth. Grosjean's great result was the first an American entry scored points at their maiden Grand Prix, and it was the first time a new constructor scored points on their debut since Toyota in 2002.

Another remarkable result followed at the 2016 Bahrain GP, when Grosjean finished in fifth place at the Bahrain International Circuit. It was Haas' best result that year and Grosjean scored all of the team's 29 points as Esteban Gutierrez struggled. Nevertheless, it was the best debut for a new F1 team this century.

The start of a long-term partnership

Having finished eighth in the 2016 F1 Constructors' Championship, Haas repeated that feat with Grosjean and former McLaren and Renault driver Kevin Magnussen who joined the team for the 2017 Formula 1 season.

Haas started their 2017 campaign well, showing great pace which was highlighted with their first double points finish at the 2017 Monaco GP. The American outfit scored 47 points but more was to come.

Haas' best ever season in F1

The 2018 Formula 1 season saw Haas often at the front of the midfield battle, only behind Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull. It was nearly an incredible beginning to their campaign at the 2018 Australian GP.

Haas locked out the third row of the grid in fifth and sixth whilst the race was equally as remarkable when Grosjean and Magnussen were running fourth and fifth. However it all went wrong at the pit stops when both drivers failed to have one of their tyres fitted properly which resulted in a double DNF.

At the 2018 Austrian GP, Haas redeemed themselves by scoring fourth and fifth at the Red Bull Ring - their best result in F1 to date. The 2018 Singapore GP, saw Magnussen recorded Haas' first-ever fastest lap.

A fuel infringement and an illegal floor led to disqualifications in the US GP and Italian GP respectively which hampered their chances to beat Renault in the Constructors' Championship. Nevertheless, the team ended the season in fifth which remains their best F1 campaign to date.

The downfall begins and Rich Energy saga

Haas were on a high but endured a tough season in 2019 as they struggled to find the optimal tyre working window throughout the year. Australia went well once again for the team as Magnussen finished sixth. That would be Haas' best result.

In Austria, Magnussen was on it with an excellent fifth place in qualifying. However, he simply went backwards in the Austrian GP to finish in 19th which underlined Haas troubles with the Pirelli rubber.

The off-track talk was the other big story for Haas as their title sponsor Rich Energy caused mayhem. Leading up to the 2019 British Grand Prix, the Rich Energy Twitter account announced that the sponsorship deal had been terminated, due to poor performances. This was denied by Haas and Rich Energy's shareholders.

At that race, Grosjean and Magnussen collided during the first lap which subsequently caused both drivers to retire to the anger of team principal Steiner. Rich Energy faced multiple legal issues in 2019 and announced the termination of their deal with Haas F1 team with immediate effect after the Italian GP.

Haas finished the season in ninth place in the Constructors' Championship with 28 points, the team's worst finish since their founding in 2016.

More poor performances

Despite the poor 2019 season, Haas retained their driver line-up of Grosjean and Magnussen for a fourth consecutive F1 campaign. However, things did not get any better.

A tyre gamble at the 2020 Hungarian GP helped Magnussen to 10th place which was his best result of the year. Grosjean finished ninth at the Emilia Romagna GP in Imola which was Haas' second and only other points finish in a dreadful season.

But, the results didn't matter at the Bahrain GP as Grosjean experienced a terrifying accident. The Frenchman hit the wall at the inside of Turn 3 hard, causing the car to go up in flames. Somehow, he escaped with just severe burns in one of the most dramatic moments in F1 ever.

Grosjean never raced in F1 again and was replaced by Pietro Fittipaldi for the final two races. Remarkably, Grosjean recovered and began racing in IndyCar in 2021.

A new set of drivers

Magnussen and Grosjean left Haas and departed F1 too at the end of 2020. For Haas, they opted to go for a bold rookie driver pairing in the form of Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin.

Even before the new season, Haas admitted that they were using 2021 as a transitional year and were fully focused on 2022 when new technical regulations are introduced to F1. At most of the races, Schumacher and Mazepin qualified and finished the races at the back of the field.
