Based on the saga so far he may as well be sitting at a bus stop off his head on acid whilst fully believing he is drinking his imaginary drink. All very strange, a story you could never make up!

This is embarrassing for us - turns out he still sponsors Haas - by bad.

So did they send a fake to go and negotiate the friendly departure with Haas, wait for them to remove the logos, and then try to kick up a stink over breaking contract with the logo removal etc.?

As has been said before, I really do hope there's an hour or so feature done by Ch4 or someone on this whole saga. It's really quite entertaining and having some professionals do some research and collate all of the information into an actual full timeline would be really quite interesting hehe

Someone should ask him how much of the sponsorship Rich Energy has paid to date (I don't use Twitter).

I’m now actually getting worried about his mental health. To post that, after
Posting on the very same account that the sponsor shop has finished and then try to deny it. I’m starting to wonder if he has a split personality disorder.

... or multiple people have access to the same Twitter account.

I don't disagree that there's a mental health challenge going on here, but I don't think it's anything to do with split personalities.

As said above an equally valid theory, and the world is full of lots of people who say something, and then vehemently deny it, despite evidence to the contrary. But, this guy takes it to a whole new level!

I hadn't consider the multiple people having access, I though it was just Beardy McTramp, and that's what most of the issue was.

Ahh the gift that really does keep on giving. Just when you think it's all died down and forgotten about, Rich Energy have to finally admit they've been beaten by a competitor, and in the courts:

I assume that will be Red Bull? What a shame that almost the whole of the previous 'Twitter feed of madness' has now been erased. Lets hope the memory can be kept alive in the postings on this thread! Is this the end of Silly Billy?

How did we miss this one?

Well this confirms the total commercial idiocy of @HaasF1Team who backed the wrong horse in an internal @rich_energy shareholder dispute & lacked the sense & courtesy to deal with the directors & owners who gave them deal in first place #F1 #JapaneseGP"

Surprised this hasn't come up yet on the thread. Looks like he's been out in one of Renault's old cars.

Strange.

Absolutely outrageous an F1 team allowed this to happen. Thank god it wasn’t Williams (as it was originally meant to be) as it could have sunk them totally.

If you'd like to do that too, just pay like anyone else:

€4,150 for 3 laps, plus time in a Formula Renault car.

Just to add that lot don't appear to offer Renault F1 cars, but I thnk Winfield does. http://winfieldracingschool.com/2017/03/01/renault...

Ah. Completely forgot this was doable actually, though I thought it tended to be with separate companies who'd bought old F1 cars, and this looks like a more recent V8 car. This post seems to suggest its actually the current team. That said, it's a William Storey post so I'll grab a fist full of salt.
