Haas announced on Wednesday it has signed Ferrari Driver Academy member Mick Schumacher to a race seat for 2021, the first time it has taken a Ferrari-affiliated race driver since it joined the grid in 2016 as a Ferrari engine customer.

"It is why we believe that our long-term relationship with Haas, dating back to when it first came into Formula 1, should be the basis for both parties to benefit from any possible synergy, consistent with what is defined in the FIA regulations," said Binotto.

"With that idea in mind, we are pleased to announce that the highly rated Simone Resta will move to strengthen the American team's technical department as from the start of next year.

"This is a further step in the process of continuous evolution of the team's technical department.

"Simone, whom we thank for his efforts to date, will have an important role within a team that has reaffirmed its long-term commitment to Formula 1.

"It has just strengthened an already very close relationship with the Scuderia by taking on Ferrari Driver Academy driver Mick Schumacher.

"Within the Scuderia, Enrico Cardile will now be tasked with coordinating the technical and human resources directly linked to performance development and the design of the car."

Ferrari is currently sixth in the constructors' standings with two races to go in a disappointing 2020 campaign, while Haas is just three points above Williams in ninth place.
