Haas F1 disproves rumours of partial sales: Storm in a teacup

At Haas F1, they once again made it clear that no shares of the team have been sold. Guenther Steiner will let us know on Thursday afternoon. The American team states that the ongoing speculation is based on nothing.

"Gene Haas is still the hundred percent owner of Haas," Steiner made clear during a videocall with Racefans.net and others. The Italian knows that for sure. “He never had a partner, he maybe doesn’t want a partner, he maybe doesn’t need a partner."

However, it is not excluded that in the future part of the team may be sold to investors. "When the time is right that he wants to do it, we will communicate it," said the team boss.

Steiner has finished it by now

He indicates that he is getting tired of all speculation about a (partial) sale of the team. “I think it’s now the third time that Gene has ‘sold the team [or] partly sold the team’. I mean, we were ‘sold to Saudi Arabia’ a year ago and the deal was ‘done’ and nobody ever spoke with Saudi Arabia. So I see this a little bit as a lot of trying to make a storm in a teacup for no good reason.”
