The technical regulations changed little compared to 2017, so the VF-18 is an "evolution" of the car from last year, although devoid of the "shark fin" as it was banned and equipped with Halo, the new pilot space protection device.
"A lot of aerodynamic research has been needed and the designers have worked hard to modify the chassis so that the Halo can withstand the loads." explained Günther Steiner, Haas Team Principal.
"The overall minimum weight of the car has increased because of the Halo and the center of gravity is higher because of its position, but we are all in the same boat.", Anadio.
The VF-18 retains the brand's colors (gray, red and black), in a version that resembles the 2016 car.
The car will be equipped with a Ferrari engine and will be driven by the same two men as last year, the French Romain Grosjean and the Danish Kevin Magnussen.
Haas, who entered Formula 1 in 2016, is the first American team in the competition since 1986. It finished eighth in the constructors' standings twice, with 29 points in 2016 and 47 in 2017.
