They are getting last year's engines from Ferrari, not the current spec.

But that's not the real problem. Haas is going up against literally hundreds of years of experience that teams like Ferrari and McLaren have combined especially in aerodynamics. Aerodynamics may be the single most important element in F1 car design now.

To me the real shock in F1 is just how poorly the Honda powerplants are performing. When they're not blowing up, that is. Soichiro-san must be doing 6,000RPM in his casket....

Yeah...my bad. Sauber is using the one-generation-older engines and Haas is getting current-spec.
