Haas to launch VF-17 on February 26

Haas will launch its 2017 Formula 1 challenger, the VF-17, on the eve of Formula 1's opening pre-season test.

Haas joined Formula 1 last year and placed eighth in the standings, with Romain Grosjean scoring all of the team's 29 points.

For 2017, Grosjean has been joined by former Renault racer Kevin Magnussen, after Haas opted not to retain Esteban Gutiérrez.

Haas' announcement of its launch on February 26 means only Williams has yet to communicate plans for the unveiling of its FW40.

Sauber will begin the launch period next Monday (February 20), before Renault, Force India and Mercedes unveil their machines on successive days.

Ferrari and McLaren will take the wraps off of their respective challengers next Friday (February 24), with Red Bull and Toro Rosso joining Haas in unveiling on February 26, the day before the first test begins at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
