LONDON -- The Haas Formula One team has changed its livery from a metallic grey to a more dynamic black-and-gold for the upcoming season.

Drivers Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen were present at the unveiling of the 2019 VF-19 car and its new sponsor, pulling off the covers at the Royal Automobile Club on Thursday.

The American-owned Haas team, which uses Ferrari engines, made its debut in the 2016 championship.
