F1: Ferrari confirms Haas engine supply

Ferrari has finally ratified the long-awaited deal to supply F1 newcomer Haas with an entire powertrain from 2016.
As has been commonplace over the years, Ferrari saved a key motorsport-related announcement for its home race at Monza, this time confirming the long-expected tie-up with grand prix newcomer Haas F1.

The relationship has been on the cards ever since Gene Haas agreed that he would be bringing his US-based operation into the top flight, and then added Haas Automation to Ferrari's list of sponsors, but has only now been officially confirmed by the Scuderia via a statement which revealed that 'the multi-year agreement is for the supply of the entire power unit starting from 2016'.

“We're delighted to announce this important strategic partnership with Haas F1 Team and to welcome an American player as a new entrant in F1,” Ferrari team principal Marco Mattiacci said, “A few months ago we joined forces with Gene Haas on a commercial level and this is the natural next step of our growing relationship.

“While our objective is to reinforce our power unit development programme for all our customer teams, we believe this new partnership has the potential to evolve beyond the traditional role of supplying our power unit and all related technical services.

“United States continues to be one of the most important markets for Ferrari and it offers many interesting opportunities. We look forward to supporting Haas F1 Team in its efforts to become a competitive player on the F1 grid.”

Haas joins Sauber and Marussia on Ferrari's customer roster, the British team having moved over from Cosworth power at the start of F1's latest technical era in 2014.

This announcement is just a formality, was always going to happen. Would have been nice to see an American manufacturer like Ford or Chevrolet involved but that was never really going to happen, not for the foreseeable future anyway.
