Jan.23 (GMM/Inautonews.com) F1 newcomer Haas has begun to work on its first car for 2016, Omnicorse reports.

While the team will be based alongside the Nascar arm in North Carolina, with a second HQ probably at the Marussia facility in Banbury, the Italian publication said the 2016 Haas car will be developed in Varano de Melegari.

That is where the Italian chassis maker Dallara is based, and Omnicorse says Haas has commissioned work on the testing of a wind tunnel model.

Haas will also be powered and supported by Ferrari.
