Rich Energy are causing chaos in F1 again... now McLaren are in their sights

A name change to Lightning Volt came and went, while CEO William Storey went and came after an internal battle between shareholders.

Messages regarding Haas have remained steady from the Rich Energy account, despite the sponsorship deal being cancelled – something that has been claimed to be untrue on Rich's part.

The always-entertaining account set tongues wagging this week by sending a tweet including hashtags #NewDeal, #McLaren and #RenaultF1.

"I haven't spoken with them. I won't speak with them. I think that is an attempt to get some publicity."
