Haas hs confirmed that it has signed young American racer Santino Ferrucci as its development driver.
Ferrucci, 17, placed 11th in European Formula 3 last season and this year will compete for DAMS in GP3.
Ferrucci will attend races and tests with the outfit and also conduct simulator work.
"My goal since I first started racing was to become a Formula 1driver, and to be an American who is part of an American team is something I take a tremendous amount of pride in," said Ferrucci.
"There is still a lot of work I need to do, but being paired with Haas will allow me to learn more and at a faster rate.
"It’ll allow me to make the most of my GP3 drive with DAMS and, ultimately, prepare me for Formula 1."
Haas also has GP3 racer Charles Leclerc under its wing, in a yet-to-be-defined role due to his association with Ferrari.
