So much for being America’s team. Canadians are cool, maybe I can be a fan of ... Aston Martin?

Barring the russian flag colors, the livery is actually good and works well with the HAAS logo.

Gotta admit, there's something awkward being an 'American' team with a Russian oligarch as a sponsor given the current political climate.

They are making it hard to be a fan. But they will probably be Russian owned next year anyway.

I like the colour scheme, easy graphics I think the sponsors are trying to paint a happy go lucky image with the recent bad publicity in olympic games.

Doesn’t look good, but I get the reality of their situation. Like someone else said above, soon the Russian guy will pull a Stroll and buy the team.

The team had to take a rookie German and a rookie Russian driver to get sponsorship to survive.
Not keen on flag patriotism in F1 but if its that or quit....then I guess it will have to be ok.

If Haas has a problem with our distaste for this livery, let's hope they Don't go away mad, they Just go away

This is my guess, tell Russian daddy that his boy can drive this year and as part of it he buys the team next year. Go ahead and put your flag on it.

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.
