Haas F1 has confirmed a technical partnership with Ferrari as it looks to enter the FIA Formula One World Championship in 2016.

"There is no team in Formula One more accomplished than Scuderia Ferrari, and no team with more history," said team founder Gene Haas, thereby ending months of speculation. "They've been a part of Formula One from the beginning, and now they'll be a part of Haas F1 Team's beginning.

"Formula One is the pinnacle of motorsports. It showcases the latest technology and is the most competitive form of racing in the world. Aligning Haas F1 Team with such a tenured and successful company in Scuderia Ferrari provides our team with the greatest opportunity for success in 2016 and beyond."

"We're delighted to announce this important strategic partnership with Haas F1 Team and to welcome an American player as a new entrant in Formula 1," confirmed Ferrari in its own statement. "A few months ago we joined forces with Gene Haas on a commercial level and this is the natural next step of our growing relationship. While our objective is to reinforce our power unit development program for all our customer teams, we believe this new partnership has the potential to evolve beyond the traditional role of supplying our power unit and all related technical services.

"The United States continues to be one of the most important markets for Ferrari and it offers many interesting opportunities. We look forward to supporting Haas F1 Team in its efforts to become a competitive player on the Formula 1 grid."

"These are exciting times for everyone at Haas F1 Team and we are honoured to have a partner in Scuderia Ferrari supporting our efforts," added Haas F1 Team Principal Guenther Steiner. "When it comes to Formula One, no one matches Scuderia Ferrari's knowledge, technical expertise and sheer determination. We understand there is some heavy lifting ahead of us, but know that with their technical support, we will develop a team of talented people at an exceptional pace so that we're ready to race competitively in 2016. We are focused on the future and look forward to what's ahead for Haas F1 Team."

"It will be interesting to see the Hass F1 efforts, the chassis development as well as their practice and qualifying grid positions. I don't expect any big surprises initially and you have to start somewhere. I think it was a good call to postpone for a year, they can really wait for the teams to shake out the bugs in the current chassis/power unit design and hopefully start out with a sound package."
