Haas has revealed the new colour scheme it will carry for the 2019 Formula One season.

On Thursday the American team took the covers off a show car to reveal the new look, having already teased the design earlier in the week on social media. Haas has carried some form of red, grey and black livery -- the colours of Gene Haas' company, Haas Automation -- since it joined F1 in 2016.

Last year, it confirmed a new title sponsorship deal with British energy drinks company Rich Energy and has adopted the company's black and gold colours -- most famously used by Lotus in previous years -- for the new year.

Haas is one of just two teams -- the other being Mercedes -- to have an unchanged driver line-up going into the new campaign, with Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean retained for a third season together. Haas finished fifth in 2018, the best finish of its time on the grid, and is hoping to continue to be a competitive player in the midfield pack.
