HAAS have become the first team to reveal their halo-equipped 2018 F1 car, with images of the new VF-18 unexpectedly released online.

The American outfit had kept their launch plans under wraps but released computer-generated images of their new car and revised livery in a video on social media.

In a Formula 1 first, all cars must be fitted with the halo head protection device – something that has not been popular with drivers – and Haas are the first team to show how it has been incorporated into their new design. The device has been painted black in line with the team’s three-colour livery, which has been tweaked for 2018.

F1 2021, Imola Grand Prix, Daniel Ricciardo: Honda and Red Bull close to Mercedes, Franz Tost says, McLaren

As Daniel Ricciardo settles into another new season at another new team, his old employer appears to be in its best position since 2013 following another marked improvement from its Honda power unit.

Red Bull has been dominated by Mercedes since 2014, which coincided with the beginning of F1’s hybrid era and the moment Ricciardo was promoted to the team.

After years of poor performance from its Renault power unit, Red Bull switched to Honda at the end of 2018 — but saw Ricciardo walk out of the door to its engine manufacturer’s works team.

Now, after two seasons of progress, the Honda power unit is “very, very close” to that of Mercedes, according to Franz Tost, team boss of Red Bull sister team, AlphaTauri.
