Seeing as the teamwear looks to be white/gray, we can expect a 2012 Sauber type of paintjob. Not the most exciting of choices, I must say...

Its good to see an American outfit on the the grid for 2016. The last effort by an American team was a failure. So I wish Haas F1 all the best but undoubtedly this will be a learning year for them.

The technical complexities of a typical F1 weekend means that any new team will struggle immensely compared to its rivals. The amount of variables are just too great to expect very much from this effort for 2016.

It is hoped they will carefully document their time this year and gain experience in their debriefs. In time they will gain familiarity and can then react better to opportunities as they present themselves. As for now a steep learning curve awaits. However I will cheer them on, applaud their successes, and commiserate with them in their missteps. Go Haas!

After Williams yesterday, Haas had a 'filmday' today which lasted 1 lap due to an oil leak.

I don't think they will struggle as most newcomers in the past though since it's basically a 2015 Ferrari in disguise, although they hate to admit. I believe they build the chassis from zero which is probably the main difference from the SF15-T, and that shouldn't give too much problems running wise. I'm very curious laptime wise.

there seem to be no bigger sponsors either. Estebans Telcel and Claro only.
If i would get the money to start my own F1 team, i would revive Arrows

Telcel and Claro are large companies, very large ones.
Many teams on the grid would love to have such sponsors on board.

I agree and understand, but i think those logos will be small on the car, like they were on the Sauber. Few millions per year, which is good, but not enough in this modern F1. aparently they will be branding themself, but thats quite dangerous. Bills can get out of control quickly.

Wait...is it a completely new chassis or is it a 2015 ferrari in disguise as you say? It cant be both...
