Just had a thought; how on Earth is Peter Windsor ever going to be able to show his face around or talk about F1 ever again?

Well. Williams dodged a bullet! At least they did their due diligence properly and something went right for them this year!

Is Donald Trump in charge of their Twitter feed?

That really reads like one of his.

Any idea if this would result in HAAS swapping their livery now they're no longer tied to RE?

I asked the mods to (I started the thread), as it is now apparent that Rich Energy were embarrassed by Haas ;-). Still readable for sts and giggles.

Ok, I’m going to say it. It has got nothing to do with Haas performance and everything to do with Rich Energy about to be declared bankrupt to avoid having to publish any of the information the courts has ordered them to publish, which would prove just how shady the whole operation is.

It has all the hallmarks of jumping, whilst in the act of being pushed.

Or alternatively, arguing about being dumped versus "dumpee" by virtue of times that texts were sent.

As several people on Twitter have pointed out, st Energy could not have timed it worse to seriously screw up Haas's weekend.

They won't have time to do an effective rebrand job; uniforms, hospitality, motorhomes, merchandise, all still with the stolen Whyte logo all over them, or at least the RE name.

This is what gaffa tape is for.

I noticed Marc Gene wearing an old polo shirt at the weekend - he'd covered up one of the sponsor names with red tape.

I thought they'd already taken the stolen Whyte logo off everything? Still got the black and gold and RICH ENERGY wording though.
