Haas: Pietro Fittipaldi to be reserve driver for fifth consecutive season

Brazilian Pietro Fittipaldi is to stay as the Haas team’s reserve driver for a fifth consecutive season. Haas say the 26-year-old, grandson of two-time Formula 1 world champion Emerson Fittipaldi, will “play an operational role” at races. Fittipaldi has raced twice for Haas as a replacement for Romain Grosjean after the Frenchman’s fiery accident in Bahrain in 2020. Haas showed marked improvement last season, moving up to finish eighth in the constructors’ championship after being last in 2021. Fittipaldi said: “Last year I did two free practice sessions, tested at the beginning of the year and at the end of season test so we’ve already been able to try some stuff for the new season. Bad Education is back and the new class K are in for a crazy year.
