F1 podcast: Haas's gloomy outlook + Wolff's Hamilton reaction

1 min read

We take an in-depth look at the first 2024 Formula 1 car to appear - the Haas VF-24 - in the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast.

Gary Anderson and Mark Hughes join Edd Straw, first to catch up on the latest about Lewis Hamilton's shock move to Ferrari to update listeners on what Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff said about the move and the candidates to replace his star driver next year.

But the main focus is the new Haas and using ex-Jordan and Stewart/Jaguar technical director Gary's expert eye we work through the key design features that are revealed.

With this year's Haas following the successful trend set by Red Bull, we examine how the team has built on the concept change it introduced at Austin last year in terms of the aerodynamic philosophy.

We also look at the mechanical package and discuss the suspension geometry choices that have been made by Haas and potentially others.

Finally, there's a broader look at the prospects for Haas - including why it's not necessarily condemned to finish last this year even if things do start slowly.
