Haas overcome freight scare ahead of Bahrain test

Concern within the Haas team over a potential delay to starting the final three-day test in Bahrain has been alleviated.

The F1 outfit has undergone a frightful pre-season to date given the issues with its new car encountered in the first test in Barcelona.

That was followed swiftly by the headache over its Uralkali sponsorship given the Russian invasion of Ukraine, forcing the team to remove all logos.

Haas has since terminated its contracts with Uralkali, owned by oligarch Dmitry Mazepin, and with his son Nikita.

It is currently in the throes of finding a replacement driver, with Pietro Fittipaldi initially stepping in for the test at the Bahrain International Circuit.

Reports had surfaced, however, that Haas may have been sat on the sidelines on Thursday due to a freight aircraft being grounded after suffering technical issues.

Although the freight remains ready to load in London, a Haas spokesperson has confirmed it will arrive on Tuesday morning, ensuring the team will be on track when testing starts in Bahrain on Thursday.
