    Have you been in the pitstop lately?

    A certain someone continues to drag religion and politics into a discussion that has little to do with either.

    He's merely hoping this thread doesn't fall to a similar fate.



    Back to the topic at hand.

    I am wondering if Haas is using Mazepin for money, to then leverage the Schumacher and Fittipaldi names for advert and income.

    Gene ain't no dummy.

    I don't know if the person in charge of commercial relations is the same they've had, but after the energy drink fiasco, they really have to rethink their sponsorship model. To me, this Mazepin episode screams: "due diligence".
    acket.

    I just don't understand why there are so few american billionaires interested in F-1.

    Elon has zero interests in F-E. I guess Tesla doesn't really need it to prove itself...

    Likewise Amazon doesn't really need to advertise on F-1 cars anymore...

    If Gene Haas cannot afford to showcase American drivers, I really don't see why he needs to have an F-1 team.

    I suppose Haas was almost a successful baby Ferrari team just as Racing Point is now as the baby Mercedes team... too bad Ferrari cheated.

    I still like to see an american team succeed, but Haas' reliance on Ferrari makes it difficult. Hope Ferrari can recover soon.

    Because F1 = Engineering and Machining, and he is selling machines for engineers?

    Or you could pin your hopes on the other American team.

    Damn, that's fantastic. Didn't even notice at first. I wonder if it was by design. (Probably)

    Yeah, sure, Michael has that recognizable, statuesque look. You could probably throw a toga on him and pass him for a Roman magistrate.

    Haas had signed up 2 new drivers? Hope Mick is as good as his dad...

    Also wonder who will occupy the empty RB AT seats... I guess Gasly has proven his worth...
