But are they fast enough?
The refrain "same as it ever was" in Talking Heads' 1981 hit "Once In A Lifetime" resonates 37 years later within Haas F1 Team.

The Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team has launched its new challenger, the C37, ahead of the 2018 Formula 1 championship. The C37 looks different to last year’s C36 – on one hand, this is due to the new technical regulations, and on the other hand, because of the team’s new technical approach.

Gene Haas, founder and chairman of Haas F1 Team, does not expect to be an 8th place team much longer.
