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.

  • This video was finished before the rumours came out on Thursday suggesting that Gene is looking to sell up his stake. WHAT TIMING. So yeah, that's why I don't mention those rumours. Maybe I can just see the future eh. Oh, and go give Aldi's video on this subject a watch n'all. notown.info/two/video/n5ymdZp3dtae2tU.html

  • TLDR: because he thinks they will. No proof, no circumstantial evidence, no conspiracy theory, just good old "I think so". What would be the motive for uralkali to buy the team? 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? You might as well have said ferrari should sell to ups because they had a shit 2020.

  • I actually thought Lawrence stroll had more wealth than Dmitry Mazepin. When I googled it, it showed Stroll 3.2 Billion US and Mazepin 1.2 Billion US. Maybe you referring to their respective companies wealth or something. Aside from all this, I'd also be disappointed if the only American team quits. I'd like to see them in F1 as a sustainable team. Hopefully the new rules make it that way.

  • Sadly I fear you are correct about Gene Haas exit being eminent. As a Yank I have done my part to convert a few (10) of my fellow bloats to the sport of F1. To give context they are all major fans of American style football. Well, I can proudly say after showing them a race before the NFL game broadcast they have become very educated fans of the sport and race strategy 👊👏 Can you say planned Mancation to Miami 2022!!

  • You keep saying the US doesn't support F1, well, we do, problem is its not on a over the air channel, its stuck on ESPN. Most racing fans have ditched cable and satellite. Who wants to spend money on ESPN when the only thing you will watch is F1? There are to many other racing formats to consume.

  • Yeah Günther Steiner is italian but he is from South Tyrol which is an autonomy where you speak German because it belonged to Austria until 1945. So, yes technically he is italian, but not an italien speaking italien. It would be more accurate to call him tyrolean.

  • Long time American F1 fan here, Gene needs to sell the team. At this point he is damaging his motorsport legacy. Letting a Russain flag be draped over his American car, frankly it's sad and embarrassing. Can't sell out much harder then that.

  • I'm British but I have a Russian mother, and at one point in my life I had duel Russian citizenship. The Russian people have their own problems at home with state corruption and poverty being the geopolitical issues they care about most, the Mazepin's and Formula 1 aren't at the forefront of their minds I don't think. Daniil Kvyat is a much better reflection of a real Russian person I think, Nikita has clearly spent most of his life living outside Russia enjoying the perks of Western life.

  • Suprise ! When Haas first entered F1, I predicted they would last 4/5 years before giving up. They had some limited success early on when they were pratically a Ferrari B team. 3rd rate drivers ( in fi terms) like Grosean and Magnisson were never going to push Haas forward. And now they are about to give up ? no suprise there. American teams just dont have the staying power for F1, As private companies like Haas or major companies such as Ford ( 2000) F1 is mostly a European sport and long may it be so. ☺

  • Subscriped to the channel. Im from Germany. I dont think Haas will leave F1 because of the deals with Mazepin and Schumacher. Schumacher brings in some sponsors like 1&1 and has the Ferrari Academy background, so Ferrari wants to keep the seat.. And Mazepin has got a father. As far as the driver contracts go, and they said that they got multiple year contracts, Hass will continue racing in F1. The only option is without Gene.

  • There has never been a meritocracy when it comes to racing and yes mazepin did something stupid, but the fact that people just keep harping on it is just stupid, she didn't press charges. Why do you think that having oil money is in some way bad, having money is not bad, good for you if you do! Everything we use is a product of oils, whether in the materials such as plastic or more so the way we receive or products, even fruits and vegetables are harvested with gas/diesel powered tractors and brought to market in trucks or trains, OIL. Last, I don't think Gunther is doing bad, his team slumped, then covid hit. He worked with NO MONEY last year, and had an engine that sucked and he had no way of knowing whether or not the engine would be good this year, his call to bring on 2 rookies and put all of their wind tunnel time and money and design efforts into 2022 was a hard decision I'm sure but a smart one. He has brought in several new employees to help as well. Why would he bring in one driver when he can let both have a year to get used to this level, especially when you know your car socks and the engine may suck as well. You people act like paid drivers are something bad, like said, all these F1 drivers are paid drivers. Do you think a poor kid could race karts the leave Australia as a teen and go live in Europe?? Yeah poor kids unfortunately don't get to do that! Everybody still harping on Calums black eye, get over it, that was a while ago and atleast we know he takes this shit seriously. How come nobody is throwing a fit that Russell, a leader in the safety association could care less about if Valteri is injured and hit him, oh but mazepin is such a bad guy, hypocrites! Get over yourselves! Gene was honest about Grosjean, the man almost lost his life in his car, that played on his mind and instead of lying about it he told the truth. The only reason HAAS is taking a PR beating is cause of people like you who are beating a dead horse hoping to pad your ratings, and trying to insinuate that because Gene made a mistake which could've damn well been because of bad financial advise would mean he is a bad person or lacks on integrity is absolutely asinine. LOOK IN THE MIRROR, YOU SCREW UP ALL OF THE TIME AS WELL, WE ALL DO! If pricks like you, WTF1 and all these other NOtown wannabe journalists would quit going for the throat things would be better for HAAS, but if that's what you want to do then do it that's fine, just don't sit there smiling acting fake as hell like you like them.

  • *Unpopular opinion: No true F1 fan should miss that dogshit team. Why?* 1. They represent in the sport a whole continent (US) without chosing a single proper sponsor let alone manufacture their own engine (GM &/or Ford), offering literally nothing in the sport and it's development the rest have done so in the past and few of them still do. 2. They are now backed by a controversial corrupted Russian oligarch who has placed his incompetent (always weaker than his teamates most of his entire career), violent (punched Illot), abusive (groping scandal) son in a seat pretty much everone else deserved more, right after being sponsored by another scummy company (Rich). 3. Untalented, the only time they've succeeded as a team is when they used the 2018 fuel flow cheating Ferrari engine, not because of the talent of their whole team, subsequent years proved this by being always the slowest Ferrari powered team. Only talent in there is Steiner who is the only man making this joke of a team somewhat interesting.

  • Guenther Steiner does not seem "Italian" because he is from South Tyrol, an Italian province with a German speaking majority. It was part of Tyrol (Austria) but Italy claimed it after the First World war. Culturally it is definitely still much more similar to the Alpine regions of Austria or Germany than anything else.

Aside from that, most Americans would care more if there were American drivers in F1. The FIA changed their rules to allow more American races to count towards a super license, but it's still at a huge disadvantage compared to elsewhere in the world.
