Is there potential for negative reflection for their (Haas) partners as well? Guenther Steiner claims they have executed their due diligence on this deal.

You mean they stole Rich from Williams seems to be the story


----------

I don't Haas are happy with Rich. The question is who in Rich was able to make such a statement on twitter because surely it is someone within their PR team who would control the social media channels

If its been leaked that Rich want tot leave Haas.. it certainly has not been done in a proper manner which has got Guenther angry

Unwelcome distraction from team's focus in the middle of a racing season.

There apparently is conflicting views at Rich Energy - the shareholders are still interested in F1 and therefore on Haas' side then you got the owner who is a bit looney thinking because he owns the company can make all the decisions like that and the one who made the twitter statement.

If I owned a company that was losing money I would feel quite entitled to close it down.

He's now trying to find a solution on how to stop them crashing into each other. The best solution is to fire them.

I don't know what else Guenther can do but maybe giving both his drivers a rocket >:( and tell them that if they continue to do this then they will have no future with the team . We know KMag tends to be almost Verstappen like with his defences and Grosjean is just prone to crashing. The two of them needs to get the message

I don't see either driver with much a career in F1 - Grosjean similar situation at Hulkenberg being from that generation and KMag - once a promising youngster it looks like he is in danger of going nowhere seeing LeClerc, Verstappen have kicked on , Sainz is getting his reputation back and Norris is going to move forward with his career along with Russell no doubt
 
finally the partnership between Rich Energy and Haas has come to an end


I must say that Haas has been very kind, they agreed to terminate the contract with immediate effect because Rich Energy "will see the need for a revised global strategy". I must confess that in my professional life I have never witnessed a company willingly surrender the money they were legally due because their counterpart needs a revised global strategy (irrespective of the meaning of such wording). A revised global strategy dean't mean that you can't fullfil your obligations, that is usually called "bankruptcy".

Is Haas going to come clean on what really happened (something that has been wispered for months Haas and Rich Energy end partnership) or are they willing to keep on pretending that they did a proper due diligence on Rich Energy and also pretending that they didn't fall for a scam where they never received the money they were due?

All in all it seems that this is really bad, especially bad for Haas who ended up looking like fools
