Which of those do you think applies?
If anything, it would be the Advertising Standards Authority, but even then we're only looking at some twitter hashtags for heavens sake. I don't recall any actual adverts stating these stupid claims.

Anyway, let's move away from this - does anyone know how we could find out what happened yesterday in court?
You're right - TS was a bad example. Happy to move on.

As for what happened in court, I believe once summarised and whatever orders the court may make are finalised, it's a matter of public record and I'm sure the general F1 press will report on it.

Can that account be genuine? It's hard to believe that they would ditch Storey and still carry on tweeting in the same tone as him.

Also slagging off Red Bull some more and making a statement about new Haas livery for the German GP. Something that I'm sure Haas wouldn't allow to be revealed in such a manner...

I suspect someone is having a laugh - possibly Storey himself??

It's weird in that they seem to imply, from the tone of the tweet and the account, that they are the Haas F1 team, not a drink company? Same as Rich Energy seemed to do?

Not just a likeness, it's a cut and paste including the little glitches around it.
This has to be a parody account?

Good spot, they’re identical.
There seems to be a couple of Lightning volt accounts now, so can’t imagine any are official.

Even if it is the 'official' Lightning Volt feed, it's not a proper company of any substance. It's just a new name that Storey is using to try to escape his previous liabilities. He has no product, no brand, no backers and no friends. It's just another unimaginative name with another stolen logo.

It has nothing to do with the Rich Energy drink, Rich Energy's backers or Haas F1, so he's clearly deluded if he imagines that Haas will suddenly become Lightning Volt Haas F1. Or he's just trolling for sts and giggles.

Or trolling to make himself somehow feel better about the fact he's royally screwed himself. Whatever he expected when he began the RE journey I doubt he expected it to end up as it has smile

A good lesson for the onlookers about not being a total prat/liar/dhead.

So Staxoweb or whoever have spent the day creatively changing logos as much as possible.
Ruddy hell this is moving fast again.

Staxoweb might have just done their last job for anyone, let alone Rich Energy:

https://www.thegazette.co.uk/notice/3320818

It's the old double pincer movement!
Staxoweb's registered office address is in the same building as another firm, unrelated to this matter, of some notoriety and Staxoweb are represented by a firm just round the corner from me. Small world.

But yes, everyone is bailing from the st show. What is left are some shareholders with very burnt fingers trying to re-build the RE brand and I suspect HAAS' funding for the rest of the year is secure. Whether Romain's seat is as secure remains to be seen. Still with his banking background (was he not still working part time when he first started in F1?), he may have a future working with HAAS rather than for them acting as the money man... or maybe WS needs a good financier?

Lightning Volt is the Rich Energy company without Storey. He's obviously disappeared in a hissy fit claiming he owns the IPR personally. It's all clear in their filing history at Companies House: https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/0979166...

No idea of the source; can’t find anything via Google, but this tweet claiming RE lost their Vin-X case yesterday, which, by enforcing the handover of 20% of RE to Vin-X will therefore reveal the “value “ of RE.
