Why F1 shouldn't take Haas for granted

Why F1 shouldn't take Haas for granted

Formula 1's newest team should be a golden example of the potential of a lower-cost future, but a disillusioned Gene Haas is frustrated with both the championship's current model and the vagueness over where it's heading.

Amid all the talk of Formula 1 rules changes for 2021 it's easy to overlook one very important fact. As there is no new Concorde Agreement, or whatever its future replacement might be called, none of the teams are formally committed to the sport beyond the end of next season - and thus there's no guarantee that there will still be 20 cars on the grid.

Whether the decision to ultimately sign up for 2021 is made by an unsentimental board of directors with an eye on the bottom line, or a mega-wealthy individual who is involved largely because of personal enthusiasm, any call on remaining in F1 has to make financial sense.
