Gene Haas is to become a sponsor of Scuderia Ferrari before launching his own team in 2016, the Italian team has announced. Haas Automation logos will appear on the F14 T from this weekend’s race in Britain.

Ferrari has always been the intended partner for Haas, despite Mercedes also being mentioned. However, today’s announcement stopped short of confirming that a deal for Haas to use Ferrari engines and other technology has been done, saying only that discussions are still ongoing.

Gene Haas will reportedly not be fielding cars on the Formula 1 grid in 2015.

“It’s already June so it’s just seven months away and the timing issues are starting to get real crazy,” Haas told Motorsports.com. “We have a list of names [of people we want to hire], but the problem is a lot of times they’re already working for somebody and they can’t get out of their contracts for three to six months so there’s a lot of those contractual issues that have to be resolved before someone can come over.”
