This weekend’s Australian Grand Prix will see history be made regardless of the end result.
For the first time in 30 years, an American team will be lining up on the Formula 1 grid, acting as the latest achievement for the sport in the United States.
Haas F1 Team has come a long way since owner Gene Haas and team principal Gunther Steiner first considered entering the series six years ago, with this weekend’s race acting as the culmination of many years of hard work and planning.
The past few months have been particularly busy for all involved with the team as the final touches were put to the VF-16 car ahead of its on-track debut in testing.
Profiling Haas’ launch and development, Wednesday night will see the premiere of Haas F1: America’s Return To The Grid on NBCSN at 11:30pm ET.
Haas F1: America’s Return To The Grid invites viewers inside the doors of Haas F1, providing behind-the-scenes access to the team, garages and drivers, as they prepare for the upcoming Formula 1 season and become the first American-led team to officially compete in F1 since 1986.
As well as featuring interviews with Haas, Steiner, drivers Esteban Gutierrez and Romain Grosjean, and team manager Dave O’Neill, cameras travel to Haas F1’s European headquarters in Banbury, England, its chassis partner Dallara’s factory in Parma, Italy and to Barcelona, Spain for pre-season testing.
