Haas F1 Team is a relatively new entrant to the world of Formula One racing, and they came to the fore in 2016. They happen to be the first F1 team with an all-American board after a long time. There is a vast deal of experience from the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, while a UK base also makes the team quite strong. Even though it has had a difficult 2019 season, it was not too long ago that they made a blistering start to life in F1.
Gene Haas is responsible for coming up with this team, which started in 2016. Their first campaign turned out to be relatively good, with a return of 29 points. However, they excelled in 2018 after amassing 93 points and finishing fifth in the Constructors’ Championship standings. Punters have to be very cautious about placing money on this team in specific markets, as Haas Formula 1 team has never been able to enjoy the podium finish.
The recent four seasons in F1 have witnessed the Haas racing F1 team making a significant impact. They have managed to pick up a steady stream of points in the last three seasons of 2019. Romain Grosjean started with a string of retirement – three in his first four races of the season. Even when they have been able to complete races, the Ferrari engines have not been sufficient in terms of pace. Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen were only able to finish 17th and 15 in this year’s United States Grand Prix, and their subpar performances were documented in this video. There are also several betting opportunities.
Grosjean is an excellent pick for this market, considering that he has had seven retirements. Magnussen is quite far behind with three retirements. Hence, an attractive option would be to back Grosjean.
Haas F1 car has had a tough season with nine retirements already. This is substantially better than McLaren’s seven failures. Crucially, most of the fiascos have come about from Grosjean. It would be an excellent choice to go with Haas for the first retirement.
It has been a difficult season for Haas with the team only ahead of Williams. Even though it started well with Magnussen finishing sixth in Australia, things have looked complicated for Grosjean, who has had a string of retirements. It is quite remarkable that only five races have witnessed at least one of the two drivers finish in the top 10. It is possible to catch highlights of Magnussen’s performance at the Australia GP in this video. A major disappointment of this race was the early retirement of Grosjean, whose car once again went through mechanical failure. It has effectively been the story of the season for Haas.
Grosjean has a lot of talent but can challenge most successful drivers like Lewis Hamilton, who has just sealed his sixth Drivers’ Championship title. However, Grosjean has been let down by his affinity for errors and underperformance. After a lot of doubts, the Frenchman was able to secure a ride with Haas F1. Undoubtedly, it has been a problematic opener to the season, and things have never improved for the 30-year-old.
Magnussen is in a comfortable position after having secured his performance with Haas until 2020. This is unlike Grosjean, who is fighting for his place at Haas with rumors of Nico Hulkenberg and Valtteri Bottas coming in as a replacement. The Danish driver was able to enjoy a stellar 2018 campaign, and he could secure a top 10 finish in 10 races. This time around, the number has fallen to a paltry four rounds. He has not been in a good moment this year.
Formula 1 Haas outfit was able to enjoy a fifth-place finish in the Constructors’ Championship table last season, but the team has been a challenging moment for 2019. They are competing against a stellar line-up of clubs for a place on the grid. These include the following.
Among these options, Alfa Romeo and Scuderia Toro Rosso are seen as favorites to be a real challenge for Haas. Only in 2018, it seemed like Haas were able to profit immensely from McLaren’s reliability problems. They even emerged as a potential challenger for Renault. Slipping into lower levels of the Constructors’ Championship table is a setback, as Haas is keen to avoid finishing in the second from the bottom position. There is still a substantial likelihood of them being able to overtake Alfa Romeo, who is in the eighth position. The recent form of Alfa Romeo has been quite good, and they have been in the news recently after finishing higher than Scuderia Toro Rosso and Racing Point in the last race.
Brazil was a thriving destination for Haas in 2018, but it was a different story in 2017 when one of the drivers had to retire. Hence, one should be quite careful when trying to place a bet on Haas for the Brazilian Grand Prix.
