The Haas F1 Team will run an updated livery for the remainder of the 2017 Formula 1 season, featuring even more grey in its paint scheme.

In the wake of the FIA’s new driver name a number rules, the grid’s sole American outfit has opted to tweak its livery scheme for the remainder of the season, which it will debut at next weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix.

The updated paint job eschews the red flashes along the VF-17’s nose and rear wing, replacing them with a muted light grey that contrasts with the predominantly dark grey colour seen on the Ferrari-powered car.

The only remaining red flashes will be the accent marker at the rear of the engine cover and the team’s logo on the nose.

The team currently sits eighth in the Constructors’ Championship standings in its sophomore season, ahead of Sauber and McLaren.

The team has picked up two eighth place finishes, with Kevin Magnussen (China) and Romain Grosjean (Bahrain) scoring one apiece, as well as a tenth place for Grosjean last time out at the Spanish Grand Prix which came courtesy of a post-race time penalty for his teammate.
