Haas have become the first team to present their colour for the upcoming 2023 season, revealing a slick new livery that will adorn the VF-23 via a series of digital renders published on Tuesday.
Rather than a full-scale launch, Haas opted to showcase their livery for this season on a 2022-style virtual model, with the team’s new car – which will be driven by Kevin Magnussen and new team mate Nico Hulkenberg.
Replacing the recent white base seen on Haas’s 2021 and 2022 challengers, black is now the main colour, whilst flashes of white have been retained alongside some red highlights – which draws comparisons to their 2020 design.
Haas will be entering the 2023 campaign looking to continue their recent upward trajectory, having moved off the foot of the F1 constructors’ standings to eighth position under last year’s rules reset.
I was very pleased to welcome MoneyGram as title partner for the 2023 season and beyond, and it’s exciting to see our first livery unveiled together as MoneyGram Haas F1 Team. We head into a new season buoyed by some strong team performances last year and a return to points paying finishes. The aim for the 2023 season is naturally to do that more consistently and with Kevin Magnussen and Nico Hulkenberg I certainly believe we’ve got an experienced driver pairing more than capable of delivering those points on a Sunday.Gene Haas, commenting on the digital launch.
I obviously share everyone’s enthusiasm around the livery unveil, not least as it’s a checkpoint in the pre-season calendar which means we’re another step closer to doing the thing we actually want to be doing – and that’s go racing. I like the livery, it’s undoubtedly a more elevated and modernised look which is fitting as we move into a new era alongside MoneyGram as our title partner. It’s an exciting time of year for Formula 1 and it’s great that we’re first out the gate to showcase our livery but our attention is firmly on getting the VF-23 on-track and preparing for the season ahead. We really have something to build on following last year’s performances.It’s an exciting time of year for Formula 1 and it’s great that we’re first out the gate to showcase our livery but our attention is firmly on getting the VF-23 on-track and preparing for the season ahead.

The whole organisation has been working hard to reach this point and obviously in Kevin and Nico we have two proven points-scoring talents locked in behind the wheel. I can’t wait to get started.Guenther Steiner, Haas Team Principal.
