Formula 1 newcomer Haas F1 will use Ferrari engines when they make their debut in 2016 after signing a multi-year agreement.

The American outfit will officially line up on the grid in 18 months' time and it will be powered by the legendary Ferrari, with the deal confirmed by the Italian company's team principal Marco Mattiacci.

"We're delighted to announce this important strategic partnership with Haas F1 Team and to welcome an American player as a new entrant in Formula One," he said.

"A few months ago we joined forces with Gene Haas on a commercial level, and this is the natural next step of our growing relationship.

"While our objective is to reinforce our power-unit development programme for all our customer teams we believe this new partnership has the potential to evolve beyond the traditional role of supplying our power unit and all-related technical services.

"United States continues to be one of the most important markets for Ferrari, and it offers many interesting opportunities.

"We look forward to supporting Haas F1 Team in its efforts to become a competitive player on the Formula One grid."

Ferrari are currently also supplying engines to Sauber and Marussia.
