Most of the teams make a lot more sense as a billionaires hobby than an actual business and I think Haas has fully realized he is in a sport where he has close to zero chance of ever winning regardless of how well it is managed or the drivers he gets.
I like Gene Haas, I think hes a smart guy, and I think a US team is important to grow the sport here in the US. But I also think his estimates must have been WAY off regarding how much he could compete in F1 and how much it would cost him personally. Every time they show him on DTS, it looks like reality hitting him in the face.
