Why Haas has given up on F1 2021 already

Haas didn't develop its 2020 F1 car at all last year, and it is set for another year of the same this season. All we've seen so far is a new livery, and when the real VF-21 emerges at pre-season testing, it will have some new parts on it compared to last year, but nothing significant. And as this video explains, there are other clear signs from the team that 2021 is not at the forefront of the team's ambitions to recover from its slump of the last couple of years.

    Gene Haas needs to salvage as much as possible of his good American businessman name, and get out now to minimize $$ losses, and quietly financially back Mick on another team. Matzepan is not good enough for F1 and needs to stay in the feeder series. His dad needs to pay Gene Haas “pain in the ass” penalty money, and buy the team outright.

    I think HAAS could probably do some small upgrades on the manufacturing end without actually needing to get their hands dirty on the research-and-development side of things. For example... Some techniques were recently developed that enables carbon fiber to be made stronger, stiffer and more cheaply without compromising on weight.

Look down...more...more...yeah that tiny little sticker at the bottom of the car... that's the American flag, and it's not even Red White and Blue! Pathetic! Bought Spyker, at least he was up front about it. I actually have one of theirs shirts, and Verstappen fans always hi-5 me :) Second: How rich are you that you can just write off $100 million by not even trying to race your car? He could send everyone responding to this thread and $1,000, and he'd still come out ahead

    Mazepin did nothing wrong. I'm guessing the majority of males have done something similar to a close female friend at least once during their high school/college days. That in itself doesn't make it right but it's just one of a million dumb ways young people court each other. They were friends, probably drinking and having a good time. She laughed and pushed his hand away so he immediately stopped and didn't do it again. If they didn't know each other or he tried doing it again than I would agree 100% with it being wrong. The girl even released a statement immediately afterwards if I'm not mistaken. Enough of this fake news witch hunt... People need to chill the F out and let the damn kid focus on racing

    After 1 race in the 2021 season there is no doubt that the team is a thorough disgrace, and an embarrassment to themselves and to the USA. If they had a shred of self respect they should withdraw the team with immediate effect. I can't imagine how Mr. Haas thinks this ridiculous team is going yo enhance his corporate image. I will not be able to watch F1 this season because of the presence of this joke of a team', (representing my country, indirectly, me), disgracing the sport I've followed avidly since 1954.

    For 2022, they need to ditch Mazepin. Find an American sponsor with a kid who wants to pretend to be a racecar driver. Jeff Bezos has a 20 year old son. He probably drives better than Maldonado. Go stick him in a car and collect a giant check. Then cover the car in American flags and Amazon logos. Everyone wins.
