The incoming Haas F1 team have already made their ambitions evidently clear thanks to their close alignment with the Ferrari team. They will receive their engines for next year, and will likely be given at least one Ferrari affiliated driver also. There has been extensive speculation over the past month as to who will drive for Haas for their entry into F1 next season. At the moment it appears that any two of ten drivers are being considered for the race seats, with any one from current Le Mans 24 Hours winner Nico Hulkenberg to the likes of young American Alex Rossi have been linked with the race drives. Whilst Nico Hulkenberg would be an unlikely signing, the close link Haas has with Ferrari and the current performance of Kimi Raikkonen may be enough of a carrot to entice Hulkenberg to the start up team. Recently it appears likely candidates include two current Ferrari affiliated drivers. Both Esteban Gutierrez and Jean Eric Vergne are currently linked with Ferrari, and both also possess at least two seasons of F1 experience. This experience would be crucial to a start up team like Haas, with Haas team principal Guenther Steiner has stated he wants some experience from his driver line up. "We would like to make a decision by the end of Summer because then we can get prepared for the driver.The car needs to fit the driver." He also added "Also we've got time to explain to our driver what we are doing because we are new and he needs to help us as well". It seems for the time being the team are keeping their options open with drivers, as they do not know who may become available before the beginning of the 2016 season. What is currently clear is that the team are holding ongoing talks with a number of drivers, and they would wish to announce their driver line up as soon as possible to give them the most amount of time with their newly announced driver line up. Who do you think will be driving for the Haas F1 team next season? Please give your thoughts and comments below.
