Perhaps they could sponsor Hass as well.

I was curious, so I looked to see if Rich Energy has unwound their links to Haas. Their main website still has F1/Haas content up. They did have a well done tweet that mentions the divorce...

https://twitter.com/rich_energy/stat...32335716261891

Quote:
CEO William Storey "I would like to thank @HaasF1Team for great efforts in our partnership. It is regrettable they got caught in crossfire of a shareholder dispute which led to this wholly avoidable fiasco. I wish the team the very best & our passion for motorsport unabated" #F1

I don’t think that tweet is genuine. It is borderline professional.

Too professional to stick. Rich Energy is back at it in what looks like to me to be some type of passive aggressive mention...

https://twitter.com/rich_energy/stat...28707535249408

If you don't care to look at the tweet, here is the text...

Quote:
We wish @HaasF1Team the best of luck in negotiations selling the team to Saudi investors. An excellent team and great investment #haasf1 #sale #business #F1 #Singaporegp
#richenergy #betterthanredbull #Saudi #MiddleEast #Motorsport
Its sort of like walking up to a crowd at work and saying... "So Jim, how is your job hunt going?" Everyone (including Jim's boss) looks at Jim... who may or may not be actually looking to quit his job.

Sort of a "when did you quit beating your wife" moment.

(Edit: Another bizarre tweet earlier doing a backhand to F1 https://twitter.com/rich_energy/stat...40708858920961 Throwing shade as the new kids say!)

That clip of how good TT riders are is filled with Monster cans. Which is amusing.

Yes.

And Haas was asked about the tweet and basically is saying... We don't know what they are talking about. Then again, if they were for sale and wanted to keep it quiet, they would say that. Who knows what is going on.

Apparently Rich Energy have "reached a settlement with Red Bull" about a legal dispute:

https://twitter.com/rich_energy/stat...51518952046597

Which dispute was that? (there have been so many)

It's also just a weird tweet/PR communication (but that is not out of the ordinary for Rich Energy). While I expect the details are confidential, I expect it wasn't in the favor of Rich Energy. So why even bring it up? Lastly... interesting choice of images to show. They show both the Haas and Toro Rosso cars in the same shot. One is a team they are no longer associated with and the other is sponsored by a direct competitor. It seems that the Rich Energy twitter account is just as likely to show you an image of Red Bull as it is their own brand.

The tweet looks like a case of "get your retaliation in first."

You're right about the odd picture.

Ran across this earlier today. It's the first bit of the article regarding a bit of "truth stretching" by Rich Energy.
