10th June, 2014 (F1 Plus / Rosie Baillie) - Gene Haas told Sky Sports F1 that he hopes to sign a deal with an engine supplier in the next few weeks.

We haven’t signed a deal yet so I don’t want to overstep my boundaries and put the cart before the horse. But we are in negotiations and hopefully we will have something in the next few weeks,” Haas said to Sky Sports F1.

At present the only engine suppliers in Formula One are Ferrari, Mercedes and McLaren, though Honda will return to the fray next year.

Haas recently told Forbes that his team will be on the grid in 2016 as it will give them more time to prepare.

“The plan is absolutely to launch in 2016 and we are fully committed to that. I don’t think there is any doubt whatsoever,” he told Forbes.

“from a personal standpoint, I really would have liked to go racing in 2015. It was hard to sit there and say no.”

“The first year is always going to be tough but I think that by waiting a year we will probably only have six months of it being really tough because we will be better prepared.”
