Haas retains black and gold livery after sponsor split


Haas has parted with title sponsor Rich Energy but the US outfit has retained its basic black and gold livery for its VF19.

The team took on the colors of its new commercial partner at the start of the year, but over the summer a management coup and counter-coup at the controversial energy drink company has led to its departure from F1, a move that became effective after the Italian Grand Prix.

Haas raced with Rich Energy logos on its car at Monza, but the team has since stripped its VF19 of its former partner's identity, revealing an updated livery on its website ahead of next weekend's Singapore Grand Prix.

The team likely retained its basic color scheme for economic or time constraint reasons as changing the livery and team kit would have required a significant expense in both capital and time, with just seven races remaining in the 2019 season.
