It's also nothing at all like the 2019 Ferrari.



Nope, nothing like it.

the biggest difference there is that the 2020 HAAS has red on it, and the 2019 Ferrari, umm...

I guess orange is a type of red.

Front wing is different, rear wing is different (surprised how much shorter the Haas wing is), front suspension is different, lengths are different, sidepod shape is different (Haas bulges out more).

I think they look very similar, but different in every area when I look carefully. I wonder what a similar comparion with other F1 cars would be like?

EDIT: Oh, and I think the Haas has a couple of extra inches in the wheelbase

The differences are always going to be minor, yet significant in their effect. It's a funny graphic, but you're right, it's not that hard to what is different.

Some bits however, do look a little like Dallara have been 'inspired' by Ferrari..

Any two F1 cars should look broadly similar at a glance though, the regs are fairly tight these days, doesn't leave that much room for obvious variety, not least viewed top down.

Given the Haas uses the Ferrari powertrain, it is rather likely that there will be similarities.

Looks like Johnnie Walker are no longer a global partner of F1 nor a Race sponsor this year.

Maybe they're changing to Racing Point / Aston Martin as going from Johnny WALKER to Lance STROLL isn't a step to far.

They may be gone from our sport. But they remain in spirit.

HAAS official post clearly says its the VF-20, also quick look at the VF-19 can see this is different.

It's also just a computer render, showing only what they want you to be able to see. The actual car that rolls out onto track will look different again, other than the shape of the structural part of the tub and nosecone.
