Petro Fittipaldi Joins Haas TeamNovember 10, 2018
The team has officially confirmed the information. Brazilian racer will take the place of the test pilot.
Pietro is the grandson of the double world champion F-1. In 2016, he won three times in European Formula 3, and last year he won the Formula V8 3.5 youth series. In the current season, the pilot drove off five races in the American IndyCar stage.
Although it was originally planned that he would participate in the WEC, however, at the Spa stage, a young Brazilian broke both his legs and took several months to recover.
Now he will participate in the VF-18 in the post-season tests, which will be held at the end of this month in Abu Dhabi. Günter Steiner (head of Haas) noted his past merits and expressed the hope that the team and Fittipaldi Jr. will only benefit from cooperation.
