8. Haas and Alfa’s clean slate
There’s also the curious case of Haas, who ended 2021 without points. Now it may look dire for the American team but let’s not forget that they decided to forgo development on their 2021 car in order to focus their resource and time on this season.
Furthermore, Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin are entering their second season and it’ll certainly be interesting to see their progress.
Alfa Romeo struggled in 2021 as well but they have an all-new driver line-up and (like Haas) a Ferrari power unit, the Scuderia touting their rapid improvement as they attempt to catch up with Honda and Mercedes.
