Rich Energy trying to save Haas deal, blames ‘rogue’ individual

Rich Energy, who signed as Haas' title sponsor in October a year ago, has been in the midst of a court battle with British company Whyte Bikes.

As if Guenther Steiner doesn't have enough to worry about, what with his team's ongoing issues with anything that involves running more than one lap at a competitive speed, the Italian now has to worry about his title sponsor.

In a statement issued by the US -owned team ahead of Sunday's British Grand Prix, they said the comments had been made by an unauthorised source.

Rich Energy cited poor performance by Haas, which now sit in ninth place out of 10 teams in the constructor standings with just four top 10 finishes through the 21-race season's first nine races, as well as Formula 1 in general "inhibiting" their business.

However, he admitted "it was a surprise" to see the claim from Rich Energy.

He said he could not answer what long-term consequences there would be this season after the unexpected announcement but said work was going on to fully establish the situation.

"I don't want to put anybody in a hard situation".

Seattle natural disaster : Quake rattles Washington state today, followed by aftershock today
A flurry of seismic activity in Snohomish County has people on edge after two earthquakes, magnitudes 4.6 and 3.5, shook the area. The quake was followed minutes later by a 3.5 magnitude aftershock near the city of Monroe, some 30 miles northeast of Seattle.

Steiner's statement really doesn't clarify anything, as it doesn't discredit Rich Energy's tweet as "fake news", nor does it imply that the two sides have, in fact, cut ties.

Echoing Steiner's "I would like to tell you more", there is so much more we would like to tell you but can not for fear of the obvious litigation that would follow. Haas nice people but the vehicle is going backwards.

"We wish to confirm our commitment to the Haas F1 Team, Formula One and to thank the Haas F1 Team for their support and patience whilst this matter is dealt with internally".

"I don't want to put anybody in a hard situation, but I can not say anything (more) about it", he told reporters. "It doesn't upset me, it's just something that we have to deal with, and I will next week". But Haas sits ninth in the constructor standings, ahead only of Williams Racing, which has failed to produce a single finish in the points through nine races.

Despite Rich Energy's claim that Haas lacks performance, Kevin Magnussen qualified fifth in Austria.

Another Twitter commentator declared: "I can't believe what an utter joke you've made out of yourselves". A milkfloat at back of grid a disaster for us.

"That is our focus". We all have parts of our jobs that we enjoy more and enjoy less.
