Nikis death was sad but there isn't much to add. It was a short event, and everyone says RIP but that's about all you can add.

Rich Energy has been an ongoing saga for months, which changes (sometimes) several times a day. It's also entertaining - it's fun discussing it because we're all on the same page (which is unusual for F1 fans).

Niki is far more important, but there is less to be said.

I remember people used to say F1 was one of the greatest soap operas ever. This seems to confirm the fact, although the saga of Rich Energy seems more like a sitcom

RBG bases its claim on two UK trade marks: no. 3129030 for RED BULL, and no. 3058007 for GIVES YOU WINGS (both for energy drinks in Class 32). It alleges that the defendants have used (in advertising):

The hashtag #betterthanredbull in various posts on the Rich Energy Instagram, Facebook and Twitter pages;
The signs WINGS and GIVES YOU WINGS as part of "FORGET THE WINGS" and "FORGET WINGS RICH ENERGY GIVES YOU HORNS" on the Rich Energy Facebook page and website; and
The sign BULL as part of "NO BULL", "No Bull..." (which, on two occasions, was posted in blue and red, the colours prominently features on Red Bull products) and "#nobull" on the Rich Energy Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. '

If its real you cant argue with Red Bull for being angry. Storey has been essentially slandering his competition with their own trademarks. He thought it worked out for his rebel approach, but slandering your competitors is never going to help you in the long run.

Yeah, that would only work for a quick more laid back tweet style, esp IF the Haas passes a Red Bull on track. But his efforts seemed more angry and mock the successful brand.

No one in this thread thinks it is more important or more interesting than Nikiís career or life.

But as Akrapovic says, whatís to add in the other thread.

You posted twice in that thread if you reply to this, which surely you will do out of courtesy, will that mean you find why people post in threads as interesting that Niki Lauda?

At least they only had to change the name of the sponsor, not the logo

Autosport have a summary of all this. It’s quite good if you d been dipping in and out as it puts everything on order:
https://www.autosport.com/f1/feature...e-sponsor-saga

They also have some on Niki Lauda:
https://www.autosport.com/f1/feature...auda--19492019
Which is way more interesting.

Rich Energy have really made themselves look silly. No wonder they are looking for a name change to make a fresh start

Is Storey the only part of the F1 circus that genuinely took a summer break then?
