    What are you even talking about. t-minus never sold anything nor ever produced anything. It was a scam by a literally Nigerian prince (Malik Ado Ibrahim) who ol' Tom Walkinshaw has fallen for and sold 25% of the team to him.

    At the time (2000) it was just a construction without any value or product to sell. That 19 years later they have something is something but excuse me if I'm not going to hand them over my money for it.

    Woah woah now Rich's investors are saying that tweet was rogue and not in line with what the company actually thinks now they are trying to make amends with Haas?

    Wow... the F1 2019 game must be amazing! If I play as a Haas driver, do I get involved in all of this? This is way more fun than actual F1 races!

    I thought it would be over after yesterday, but apparently we're just getting started. This guy is also taking everybody with him, Haas, Peter Windsor (personally I think that's deserved but ok)...next Liberty Media?

    Furthermore that Storey has now basically admitted it was him, and said that HE is the majority owner and his tweet is what is going to happen?

    I was unfortunate enough to actually try a can of that stuff and it’s basically liquid icing sugar.

    Had two sips and passed it right back to my friend. I’m sure it’s fine if you’re a humming bird or a bee, but it’s pure diabetes in a can.

    Can't make this s*** up:

    https://forums.autosport.com/topic/211627-what-is-rich-energy/?p=8815973

    Rogue individual discloses private email on twitter to somehow get likes/approval.

    But that's not all, allegedly, this firm only incorporated last year and has done only one solicitor on record, so this email might actually be false as well...which marries well with the "rogue individual" part.

    Indeed, nothing of this story helps to raise the feeling of "ow right RE is really just a normal startup that wants a piece of the energy drink market, seems legit".

    Everything of this story is filled with more engimas, the more comes to light.

    I guess that bearded man's next move is to sue HAAS for keeping the livery after terminating sponsorship, claiming bad publicity or something like that. These things I don't like to read anymore. What a shame entering British GP weekend. Awkward and obnoxious position the HAAS team is in right now.
