Energy drink Rich Energy has announced a Formula 1 comeback by buying a “majority stake of a Formula 1 team.” The brand sponsored Haas during the 2019 season, which ended in a drama show after multiple immaturities from the company’s CEO and failed contract terms.
It happened today at 3:40 PM GMT. It was supposed to happen an hour earlier, but the company delayed it due to a “media request.” We don’t yet know what the request was about, but we do know the CEO took the extra time to promote anti-maskers and say he’ll have to “watch the races in the motorhome as the bedwetters insist upon wearing silly masks,” ending it with a “#NoMasks” hashtag on Twitter.
On the announcement, William Storey announced Rich Energy agreed to purchase a “majority stake” of a Formula 1 team, although he did not say which team.
Storey said the announcement of the partnership will be made once the acquisition is confirmed, and that he looks forward to starting with the first race in Bahrain.
And that is all the information we have got respecting Rich Energy’s announcement, as they intended to only announce their re-involvement in the sport.
