Haas will send both cars onto the track with different specifications during the Las Vegas Grand Prix weekend.
Nico Hulkenberg will switch back to the old-spec Haas VF-23 car for the Las Vegas Grand Prix, while Kevin Magnussen will continue with the new-spec version. The switch was made because Hulkenberg feels more comfortable with the old spec, while Magnussen prefers the new one. Haas introduced a significant update to their car at the previous race, but it didn’t deliver the expected performance. The team decided to use the b-spec as a precursor to their 2024 car and to give their drivers what they want for the remaining two races. Haas is currently tenth in the Constructors’ Championship and their focus is on getting their concept right rather than gathering more data. Hulkenberg is excited for the Las Vegas race, which will be his debut on the new circuit, and he may even break his tradition of not doing a track walk.
