The predominantly white livery hosts significant Uralkali branding.
Haas has become the 8th team to reveal their challenger this season, introducing the VF-21 – to be piloted by Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin.
The new livery showcases a new title sponsor for the American team, Uralkali – one of the world’s largest potash fertilizer producers and exporters.
The predominantly white livery hosts significant Uralkali branding, while the team will be called the Uralkali Haas F1 Team going forward.
The VF-21 will make its physical debut on Friday, March 12 – the first day of pre-season testing hosted at the Bahrain International Circuit.
The car will be unveiled by the team’s all-rookie lineup consisting of Russian driver, Nikita Mazepin, and his German teammate, Mick Schumacher at 05:30 a.m. Irish time outside of the Uralkali Haas F1 Team garage in Bahrain.
Speaking about the VF-20’s new look, Gene Haas, chairman of Uralkali Haas F1 Team said:
“I’m very pleased to welcome Uralkali to Formula 1 as title partner to Haas F1 Team.
“We look forward to representing their brand throughout the season.
“It’s an exciting time for the team with Uralkali coming on board and having Nikita Mazepin and Mick Schumacher driving for us.
“It’s definitely a case of all change but I’m hoping that we get back to being in the mix for scoring some points at these races.
“It’s been a tough couple of seasons, but we’ve also got our eye on the bigger picture, in particular 2022 and the implementation of the new regulations.”
Team Principal, Guenther Steiner added:
“I happily echo Mr. Haas’s comments, we are pleased to be partnered by Uralkali this season and beyond.
“We approach a new season with a new title partner and two new drivers, it’s going to be an exciting year head – hopefully exciting only in a good way though.
“We face a year of learning with the drivers while technically we look ahead to the future.
“It’s no secret that the VF-21 will not be developed as we focus our energies now on the 2022 car and, what we hope, will be a more level-playing field.
“We all know roughly where we expect to be this season in terms of the competition, but we must ensure we’re there to capitalize on opportunities when they present themselves.
“But first we have to get the guys dialed in at testing.
“Time behind the wheel is short – so it’ll be a steep curve, but I’m personally looking forward to seeing their development as drivers and as team members within Uralkali Haas F1 Team.”
Pre-season testing at Bahrain International Circuit kicks off on March 12.
The 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship launches with the season-opener in Bahrain then on March 28.
