Haas has become the latest Formula 1 team to announce the launch date of its 2017 challenger.

The American outfit revealed on Thursday that its second F1 car - named the VF-17 - will be unveiled on Sunday February 26, one day ahead of the start of testing at the Barcelona circuit.

Haas has chosen the same day as Red Bull and Toro Rosso to reveal the new car.

The team, whose chassis is built by Italian constructor Dallara and powered by Ferrari engines, made its Formula 1 debut last year.

It scored a sensational sixth-place finish in its first race in Australia before finishing fifth in the next race in Bahrain with Romain Grosjean.

The Frenchman stays on board in 2017, but will be partnered by Kevin Magnussen, who replaces Esteban Gutierrez.
