A truly bizarre story has twisted this way and that over the past week, with a Rich Energy tweet, seemingly posted by Storey, ahead of the British GP claiming the company had terminated its title sponsorship of Haas over poor performance.

After some public toing and froing between Storey and the company's shareholders, the former CEO walked away from Rich Energy this week and the company was renamed Lightning Volt.

It remains to be seen how all of this will impact Haas, although it seems apparent that their sponsorship deal with the company remains intact, having previously sought £35million in damages to terminate the agreement.
