Haas Formula 1 Team will be supplied by Ferrari when the squad makes its debut in the 2016 Formula 1 season.

Gene Haas's eponymous squad confirmed on Wednesday that the Italian marque will supply Haas with Power Units, gearboxes and overall technical support in a 'multi year deal'.

"There is no team in Formula One more accomplished than Scuderia Ferrari, and no team with more history," said Haas.

"They’ve been a part of Formula One from the beginning, and now they’ll be a part of Haas F1 Team’s beginning.

"Formula One is the pinnacle of motorsports. It showcases the latest technology and is the most competitive form of racing in the world. Aligning Haas F1 Team with such a tenured and successful company in Scuderia Ferrari provides our team with the greatest opportunity for success in 2016 and beyond."

2A few months ago we joined forces with Gene Haas on a commercial level and this is the natural next step of our growing relationship," added Ferrari team boss Marco Mattiacci.

"While our objective is to reinforce our power unit development program for all our customer teams, we believe this new partnership has the potential to evolve beyond the traditional role of supplying our power unit and all related technical services.

"The United States continues to be one of the most important markets for Ferrari and it offers many interesting opportunities. We look forward to supporting Haas F1 Team in its efforts to become a competitive player on the Formula 1 grid."
