Haas has given a nod towards the radically revised livery of its 2019 Formula 1 car after posting a picture of its new team kit for the upcoming season on Twitter on Wednesday.

Haas has typically raced in red, grey and white since joining the F1 grid in 2016, but announced last October it had struck an agreement for energy drink company Rich Energy to become its title sponsor for the 2019 season.

Now known as Rich Energy Haas F1 Team, the American outfit's 2019 car livery will be unveiled in an event on Thursday in London.

A switch to the black and gold colours of Rich Energy has been mooted for some time, and a picture of race drivers Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen alongside tester Pietro Fittipaldi has all but confirmed the image overhaul.

The tweet also revealed the team's new logo. The Haas 'H' in a circle has become black and gold, with Rich Energy's name being placed above the logo. 

The return of black and gold to the F1 grid will come four years after the demise of Lotus, which traditionally ran in the colours ahead of its buy-out by Renault for the 2016 season.
