Initially planning to make its debut in the 2015 season, the team postponed their entry until the following year. Entering in 2016, with Guenther Steiner heading up the team as team principal, Haas’s innovative approach of forming a far-reaching partnership with Ferrari was both praised and criticised in the paddock at the time. Some commended the team for pioneering a low-cost model that allowed new teams to be competitive in the sport, an issue that had concerned Formula One for some time. On the other hand, some smaller, privateer teams that had invested in their own infrastructure expressed concerns about the close relationship between manufacturers and satellite constructors, fearing it could lead to more political power being granted to the larger constructors in the sport.

Haas F1 faced criticism again in 2018 when they arrived at winter testing with a car that strongly resembled Ferrari’s 2017 car, the SF70H. Competitors McLaren and Force India both criticised the partnership between Ferrari and Haas. Though no official grievance was filed with the FIA, McLaren boss Zak Brown questioned the relationship.

During 2021 rule discussions in April 2019, Renault and McLaren presented concerns over Haas F1’s B-team approach. However, F1 Director of Motorsports Ross Brawn stated that he wanted to protect and enhance the model for the foreseeable future as it allowed teams with smaller budgets to enter the sport.

In the past, Haas has also depended on Ferrari for its reserve drivers. Antonio Giovinazzi did two FP1 sessions for the team as a Ferrari reserve driver, and during Mick Schumacher‘s full-time drive with the team, he was still a Ferrari Academy Driver and Ferrari Reserve driver.

In January 2024, it was announced that Steiner would step down after eight years at the helm and be replaced by Ayao Komatsu, former director of engineering at Haas.

Haas F1 is headquartered in Kannapolis, North Carolina, and during the European calendar, the team has also established a forward operating base in Banbury, England, to manage cars between races.
