The beginning of the 2016 Formula 1 season may still be over two months away, but preparations for the Australian Grand Prix are firmly underway.

The race will mark Haas F1 Team’s debut in the sport following two years of preparation, and the team’s freight is already on its way to Melbourne.

In a tweet posted on Tuesday, Haas-branded freight carriers were pictured being loaded onto a truck at its English base of Banbury with the caption: “All packed for the @ausgrandprix. See you soon, mates.”

Esteban Gutierrez enjoyed his first tour of the main Haas facility in Kannapolis, North Carolina earlier this week with team principal Günther Steiner has his tour guide.

Gutierrez also took some time to speak to reporters including NBC Sports’ Nate Ryan ahead of his full-time return to F1 with Haas. You can read his thoughts on the season ahead here.
