    I’m confused... I thought they wanted to continue sponsoring Haas as only a minority of the stakeholders were unsatisfied with their performance... but it’s the other way around? They did ‘sack’ Haas and it was the minority that tried to save the deal? :boggled:

    Anybody's guess at the moment. In short: Rich Energy "sack" Haas for being too slow. Haas insist they have a contract and that the Rich Energy partnership continues. Rich Energy melts down on Twitter, board of Rich Energy (Justin King and co) say that they've removed Storey (the CEO) and that Storey is making the rogue tweets. Storey tweets to say that the IP has been removed from Rich Energy to another company, thank you and goodnight.

    There's a lot for the lawyers to unpick.

    Kid: Santa, I want a unicorn for Christmas.

    Santa: Nah, be realistic, ask something else.

    Kid: Ok, I want a can of Rich Energy.

    Santa: What colour do you want your unicorn?

    I think on more than one occasion the brilliant but amoral Colin Chapman came into association with unsavory sponsors.

    Formation lap is underway - let's hope that this GP's a cracker like Ben Edwards is hoping for.

    Did Ted Kravtiz get his job back?

    Watching Channel 4's coverage, but this article should confirm that Kravitz is still with Sky.

    Smooth start for Bottas, but Hamilton's piling the pressure on the opening lap.

    That is some nice back-and-forth.

    Just like in Lewis' McLaren days. Nice, aggressive and clean.

    The Cameras for Silverstone are by far the best of the season.

    Not a good day for Magnussen so far - that's the second time he's pitted in these early stages.

    I wonder if the Ferraris will wake up when they change to the Mediums, as they looked to be really fast with them in Qual.

    That's a shame for Haas, especially with all the bicycle company drama.
