Haas will unveil its 2020 Formula 1 car in the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya pitlane prior to the start of pre-season testing on February 19.

The American squad will take the covers off its 2020 challenger - the VF20 - at 0800 local time in Spain, shortly before on-track running gets underway on the first day of the opening winter test.

Haas is the eighth team to reveal its launch plans and is the second team to be conducting a pitlane reveal, with Alfa Romeo also rolling out its C39 2020 car on the same morning in Barcelona.

Only Red Bull and Williams are yet to confirm their respective launches ahead of the 2020 F1 season, which kicks off in Melbourne, Australia on March 15.

Haas will field an unchanged driver line-up consisting of Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen, who will enter their fourth successive year as teammates.

The US outfit is looking to drastically improve on its disappointing ninth-place finish in the 2019 constructors’ championship as it bids to edge back towards the front-end of the midfield pack.

Haas’ 2019 campaign was blighted with performance problems and a failure to understand its package, which resulted in Grosjean and Magnussen only being able to manage a combined 28 points across the 21-round season, leaving the team second from bottom in the standings and ahead of only Williams.

Haas has teased a return to its traditional grey, red and black livery after its Rich Energy title sponsorhip deal was terminated after less than a year.
