As Haas launched its new striking black and gold colour scheme, replacing the more-pedestrian grey-black-red scheme from its past three seasons, it also answered one of the most pressing questions ahead of the new Formula 1 season: just how will the 2019 cars look?
Let's be honest, the wheel hasn't been reinvented here. It looks like a contemporary F1 car. And, since the car is only a render at this stage (and black-on-black seems like a conscious effort to hide the details), it's hard to make out the more intricate parts. It's even harder to know what's going to make it to the circuit once Haas touches down at Barcelona.
But the render of what seems to be a VF-19 does grant us a good look at what we can expect for this year, and could potentially become a bellwether for 2019's F1 design trends as each of the 10 teams seeks to recoup the downforce slashed by the new regulations.
