We've looked at Sebastian Vettel's chances, whether the Dutch Grand Prix will succeed and Haas' chances in 2020....
Achieving good results doesn't have to be expensive, according to the unofficial motto of Haas team boss Guenther Steiner and owner Gene Haas. The American team will appear in their fifth season in 2020 and this year Haas has to return to the top of the midfield. In 2019 the team experienced a downfall, so in 2020 the team will have to work on honour recovery.

Who will be driving for Haas in Formula 1?
Driver duo Kevin Magnussen-Romain Grosjean is one of the few remaining factors in Formula 1 after the 2019 season. The future of Grosjean in the king's class was hanging by a thread, but the team decided to continue with the Frenchman anyway. Although Grosjean's performance in 2019 weren’t the best, the French driver will hope to regain confidence in 2020.
The Dane Kevin Magnussen is also set stay for a few more years, as K-Mag's results are constant and good enough. The image of the Dane isn't the best, but that doesn't bother Haas much.
Bad boys on the grid
In a period when Formula 1 teams have to throw in the towel because the king's class is not profitable, Haas rose as a project of Gene Haas in 2016. The American is already a well-known name on the other side of the ocean in NASCAR, but Formula 1 was new for Gene.
The American looks at the ailing teams and points out the pain point: Making all the parts costs too much money. His solution? Outsource everything to keep production costs low.
Haas' chassis is made by Italian Dallara and compatriot Ferrari supplies the power source to Haas. Two drivers were also quickly found, in the form of Frenchman Romain Grosjean and Mexican Esteban Gutierrez. A duo that immediately put Haas on the map.
Buying parts from Ferrari and Dallara doesn't give a race stable much of its own identity and is more reminiscent of being a puppet of a larger team. It's all about complaining and Haas quietly continues what they were doing: Scoring points.
Best of the rest
In 2018 Haas were full of confidence at the start of the Australian Grand Prix. Under the watchful eye of team boss Guenther Steiner both drivers managed to get a good starting position and Haas seemed to be on its way to double points.
Halfway through the season the turnaround finally comes and Haas (thanks to Kevin Magnussen) has already collected more points than in the previous season.
Haas F1 in 2020
In 2019 Guenther Steiner's team fell back. The speed is still there in qualifying, but in the race Grosjean and Magnussen regularly sank like bricks. In the coming season the team will hope to compete at the head of the midfield.
