Haas has become the latest Formula 1 team to get its 2022 car on track.

The team, which was the first to reveal initial renders of this year’s design over a fortnight ago, had not previously showed anything of its definitive car.

But on Monday morning it released a short video clip of its VF22 leaving the garage at Barcelona, where full pre-season testing begins on Wednesday.

The 2022 Haas is the first to be designed from the team’s new facility at its technical partner Ferrari’s Maranello base, under the leadership of Ferrari transfer Simone Resta.

Haas decided against developing its previous car to focus all resources on this year’s new technical regulations, making this season an effective relaunch for a team that spent 2021 almost entirely at the back of the grid.

It has retained Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin as its driver line-up.

Ferrari, Red Bull, Mercedes, Aston Martin, AlphaTauri, Williams and Alfa Romeo have also conducted shakedown or demonstration running with their new cars so far, all releasing footage or imagery bar Red Bull – which only used a show car for its 2022 livery launch.

Alpine launches its car in France on Monday evening, and McLaren is also planning a Barcelona shakedown of the car it unveiled at its Woking base earlier this month.
