Haas: crash tests passed, 2020 chassis approved.
The first bodywork of the Ferrari-powered VF-20 passed the final dynamic crash test
on the first attempt and was approved by the FIA at the CSI in Bollate.

Looks more like the Ferrari airbox and rollhoop than last years design... makes sense to copy the Ferrari cooling layout with their power unit.

Also why flip the image??

Formula1.com is reporting that it's the actual 2020 car, not just a livery reveal, but sources on instagram are saying that it is just the livery.

I presume this is the 2020 model as the air box is that of Ferrari’s 2019 spec an if I remember rightly haas had a much larger air box last year

Yeah, it's the new car, looking at the airbox and the front wing, which are both different than last year's. Obviously they are not trying to give away much detail in the midsection or diffuser area by the looks of it. Looks like the bastard lovechild of the VF-19 and SF-90... hopefully it will at least be a bit less draggy than last year's car.

I don't mind the 'new' color scheme as well, at least the front half is a bit different than usual.
