With Mercedes, Williams, Bottas and Massa claiming all the headlines this week, HaasF1's new signing, Kevin Magnussen, slipped quietly past all the press and into the American team's Banbury Headquarters in the United Kingdom.

The former Renault and McLaren driver will be hard at work for several days this week as the team kit him out for his new 2017 contender. He will also undertake PR and marketing duties as he integrates into his new surroundings for the upcoming 2017 Formula One Championship.

The team has been hard at work undertaking pit stop practice in the past few weeks and having Magnussen drop in for a few days has been a very welcome distraction.

Also, the new car has already officially passed the strict FIA crash tests, meaning that all is a go go go for 2017.
