Haas shows off revised livery following Rich Energy split
The Haas F1 Team has shown off the first image of what its revised livery will look like for the remainder of the 2019 Formula 1 season, following the split with its title sponsor, Rich Energy.
The American outfit signed a deal with the British energy drink brand for the 2019 and 2020 seasons, which saw the company's Stag logo feature prominently on the VF19.
However after Rich Energy lost a court case over its logo, which London's High Court ruled had blatantly ripped off British cycling company Whyte Bikes, the logos were amended to include only the name.
But just weeks later Rich Energy CEO William Storey sent several tweets claiming he wanted to terminate the sponsor deal over "poor results". This led to months of uncertainty over the future of the relationship, but last week it was confirmed the two parties had agreed an "amicable" split, which would see the branding removed entirely.
The team has however retained the Rich Energy colours of black and gold for the remainder of the season.
