Then you are over-reacting. For one, USF1 was a vanity project. Windsor and Anderson wanted into the sport, and positioned themselves as an American brand to try and bolster their chances. The team did not collapse because it was American. Secondly, there is no evidence to suggest that anyone who worked for USF1 will be working for Haas should he get in. Even then, USF1's failure came about because of the incompetence of a select few in management, so even if Haas recruits a few mechanics or engineers associated with the project, that does not guarantee that they are doomed. Finally, Haas plans to outsource the design if his chassis to an experienced design studio, rather than try to build it in-house in the space of six months. The FIA is announcing which candidate (if any) has been successful on 27 February, which gives said candidate a year to get ready.
