As an American it is impossible for me to root for Haas F1 now. You announce your new car on Russian time. You put a massive Russian flag on the livery. Whether it’s stupid or not, the American Flag is an important part of the American identity. This honestly feels like betrayal from Gene Haas. It’s incredible how things have changed from only a few years ago where Haas looked like it would consistently be one of the top midfield teams. But from Rich Energy to selling out to Mazepin, it’s over for me. Is there anyone out there who will still be rooting for Haas? Of course I still want to see Mick do well enough to see him in another car, but that’s pretty much the only reason I can see anyone rooting for them. Cheers hoping for Haas getting DFL. All I can say is, I really hope Ford returns to F1 in my lifetime.
