Ferrari has always been the intended partner for Haas, despite Mercedes also being mentioned. However, today’s announcement stopped short of confirming that a deal for Haas to use Ferrari engines and other technology has been done, saying only that discussions are still ongoing.

MOORESVILLE, North Carolina – Carlos Huertas’ first-ever Verizon IndyCar Series victory in last Saturday’s Grand Prix of Houston Race 1 has been tarnished, to a degree, after INDYCAR officials discovered his fuel tank was one-tenth of a gallon over capacity and the rear-wing height did not meet technical requirements.

Huertas and Dale Coyne Racing will keep the victory but the team has been fined a total of $10,000 — $5,000 for each infraction.
