The writing's on the wall if you ask me. Haas are in the mud at the back of the Formula 1 field. By far and a way the slowest car, and both drivers are rookies - and struggling. And if you ask me, I don't think the name is going to be in Formula 1 for much longer.
Here's why.
Go give uncle Aldas' take on this a watch n'all.

  • I hate to say it, but besides pinning their fate to a cheating Ferrari team, Haas’s biggest problem is Guenther Steiner. I love watching him, but his management style is TERRIBLE. He demoralizes his drivers and engineers, and is pervasively, constantly, overwhelmingly negative. That is not how you create a championship team. Look at any championship team in any sport from the last 20-30 years, and none have been led with a management style like Steiner’s. GET RID OF STEINER!!

  • I'm surprised they stayed in as long as they did. So much money for absolutely no return on investment. What a colossal pain in the rump Formula one has made itself to any other team but Mercedes,Ferrari and Red Bull.

  • Seriously wanted Haas to be a viable team. Don't feel that Steiner is the man for the job. With them bringing Mazepin on this year I have stopped following. I wish the best for Schumacher. Have followed F1 since the 70's. Really want an American-based team in the sport but not happy with the Haas direction. American here and also a Subscriber.

  • Gene Haas must be one of the dumbest people in F1. Came with big fortune and leaves with a small one. He was after marketing and sales of his CNC machines and instead of becoming a major sponsor of any current teams, he chose to waste so much more instead creating a team. Its like buying a restaurant when all you need is to eat a steak. He is lucky to have had the services of Gunther, for without him his F1 participation would have been more expensive and shorter.

  • I think Gene Haas commenting on Grosjean was him being worried about his mental state. It's not like the dude hasn't been crashing like crazy for years.. right now, from the outside, it seems like he's a guy who will eventually die on the track. I think Gene has the same concern and wasn't willing to finance that.

  • As an American, I love F1 and have loved it since the 60's. Having an American F1 team, plus the opening of COTA about the same time, was as they say, " high Cotton." Well... COTA has held up it's end of the bargain, but Haas' lack of competitiveness, has been... disappointing. Gene is not a billionaire. Any F1 owner that is not a billionaire, doesn't have an all world sponsor, or is backed by a major manufacturer, is simply shoveling money out the door. Gene should run for the hills while he still can afford to. If a Russian oligarch buys the team, I hope they successfully add to the competition in F1 and are not just a back marker.

    John MulveyJohn Mulvey3 napja
  • By far the biggest issue that Haas is facing is Gene Haas himself. But if he goes, the team is safe, Guenther made sure of that. I don't think people realize that if he hadn't signed Nikita, Haas would have literally had zero chance of surviving for 2022 and beyond. They'd have had to get everything and more in 2021 to get what they need, which is prize money and sponsoring, and still would have fought for P8 at best, and probably lost. Now, they are saving money, working towards 2022, and they got their future secured. Whether that is under Gene's ownership, or someone who actually wants to be helpful instead of being their biggest enemy that buys up the team, the team under whichever name is safe until at least 2025.

  • American here; everyone here I’ve ever met that watches F1 doesnt root for HAAS. Americans that watch the sports are probably just like everyone else; either fans of the great (or historically great) teams like Mercedes, Red Bull, Ferrari, McLaren, and hell even Williams. Or they’re fans of a driver like Hamilton, Vettel, Leclerc, Norris, etc. Most of the Americans “supporting” Haas at the moment are Schumacher fans just putting up with Haas to support Mick.

  • Gene Haas made a valiant effort, had some real success and he deserves a ton of credit, financial investment aside. If MazeSPIN's father buys the team, all it will do is keep his spoiled brat son in the sport until the FIA decides he's too much of a liability to be on the same track with competent drivers and pulls his superlicense..

  • I never understood Hass using a dalara chassis. Dalara have a lousy f1 chassis history, showing us racing chassis just never translate to f1. Then unluckily hamstrung by the fallout from the Ferrarri engine debacles. But as significantly, as shown by the netflix shows exposed, Gunther was forced to focus all his time trying to get money and sponsors, instead of management, as Gene Hass rapidly cut basic funding to the team, over the last 3yrs. Our biggest concern should be that we cant loose any more teams before f1 becomes a race to race crisis. If it takes Ukalai to keep a grid of 10teams in f1, then so be it. I just hope Rich energy dont come back in, as rumored, in any way or form.

  • Oh, look, it's Comrade Tommo with a sham of a video, pretending to be informative while being just a flameboy. And this coming from a guy that doesn't even like Haas to begin with. Dude, I get it, you're are biased, we all are. It is a sport and we all have our favourites. But stop pretending you are anything but political with your shameless diatribe. I get it, you are a commie billionaire-haiting F1 fan. Do I need to remind you that of all the sports in the world, F1 is the most elitist one? Who do you expect to bring in the dough? The Little Sisters of the Poor? Or the Labour party, once they are done sharing the spoils of war? And why is money from petrol worse than money from fashion? Fuel is a basic resource. Luxury fashion is not and, most often than not, it is based on force or poorly paid workers in SE Asia. The last time I checked with people working in the oil industries, they are decently paid, even if the work is hard. Why do I have the strange feeling you are OK with billionaires like Soros but you hate Mazepins cause that's what you heard in the media is cool to do? Are you a tribunal and have decided he is a corrupt oligarch? Is he cheating on his taxes that, I bet, you think are too low? Oh, about that and your lame low blow at Gene's time behind bars. You see, not everyone is rich and without any personal obligations to move his business in Monaco like some drivers we know and love. But yeah, that is not tax evasion, cause he did it legally, right? Oh, and that thing at the end about politics, pure bollocks. And I am not even Russian. But your projections are so outrageous that I doubt anyone believes you when you are pretending not to milk the political tensions fueled by the media. Then again, there are many sheep following media the way you do... so I wouldn't be surprised.

  • Another humiliation for what's left of a declining sport. The targets for 13 different winners for the 23 races seems too far away to save this sport. It reminds the viewers of global warming... Everyone knows its happening but no one wants to change the end result. With advertisers spending money on other sports, cars lacking sponsors and the failure to attract another two teams to the grid you would have thought steffino Deminicarli would have resigned this week. The same pointless result will be repeated in Monaco if the world bothers to watch at all. The sport needs to deliver on the BSC Consulting Groups proposals of using BTC weighting of cars, compulsory 3 pit stops at Monaco, and provide far more free to air coverage for those left with any interest in this failed sport... With mercades deciding whether to continue as team owners F1 can't put the hard decisions beyond Thursday this week to save what's left of the sport.

  • In my opinion, the ownership of the Haas team basically 100% comes down to how well they do in 2022. If they're a genuine midfield contender and can attract additional sponsors, then the team may well remain under the Haas name. But if 2022 is a bad season, then there's pretty much no way they'll still be Haas in 2023.

  • The most possible reason why Gene Haas still wants to stay in F1 is that they have a deus ex machina coming up for the next regulations change next season. If it's not that, then they're waiting to sell to Uralkali. Btw, if Liberty wants an american team in F1: just bring Ford back!

They wouldn't get more exposure than they are now. Would that help them from a technology standpoint? Is their owner a motorsports fan? Was it his lifelong dream to own an f1 team?
