Former Haas F1 Team title sponsor Rich Energy has claimed it will have “major news” next week.
The energy drink brand made the claim in a tweet posted on Friday, around a month after it announced it will be making a return to Formula 1 this year.
Specifically, in early January, Rich Energy founder William Storey claimed that the company will be returning to the pinnacle of motorsport:
“F1 incoming. The best energy drink in the world mounting the greatest comeback since Lazarus. Premium British performance,” Storey wrote in a tweet.
Formula1News.co.uk subsequently reached out to a number of teams across the F1 grid considered most likely – albeit still highly unlikely – to be willing to work with Rich Energy given their reputation in the sport.
Williams told Formula1News.co.uk that they “have had no communication with Rich Energy at all and are not in any discussion regarding a potential sponsorship.”
Meanwhile, another F1 team which didn’t want to be named also said it has no plans to enter into a sponsorship deal with the company.
The Haas F1 Team didn’t respond to a request for comment on the matter.
Storey initially agreed to an interview with Formula1News.co.uk but later became unresponsive.
