American Santino Ferrucci will continue as a Haas' development driver in 2018 while simultaneously competing in his first full season in F2 with Team Trident. The 19-year-old from Woodbury, Connecticut, is embedded with Haas at every opportunity, attending races and tests throughout the year.

Ferrucci joined Haas in 2016 and participated in a two-day test with the American team at Silverstone, becoming the first American driver to drive an American F1 car since October 1977 when Danny Ongais drove a Penske PC4 in the Canadian Grand Prix at Mosport International Raceway. Ferrucci tested again for Haas in 2017, driving at the Hungaroring. Between the two tests, Ferrucci logged more than 1,180 miles.

"We're pleased to have Santino back with Haas F1 Team and we look forward to his continuing development in F2," said Guenther Steiner. "Santino is a young, American driver with plenty of potential and we're very supportive of his desire to make it to Formula One."

Ferrucci competed in the final 10 races of the 2017 F2 season with Trident after beginning the year in the GP3 Series. Ferrucci's first race of 2018 is the F2 season opener in Bahrain.

"I said it when I first became a part of Haas - my goal since I began racing is to become a Formula One driver, and to be an American who is part of an American team is something I take a tremendous amount of pride in," said Ferrucci. "My time with Haas has really prepared me for my first full F2 season with Trident, and between the two teams I feel like I'm in the best position to succeed and, ultimately, get to Formula One."
