Haas is the first team to reveal its 2019 Formula 1 challenger, which has been built to a new set of rules ahead of the wider changes coming for 2021. Although not a revolution, it gives insightful pointers on how the teams have adapted to the changes

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.
