"It's okay to have to manage, that's expected in Formula 1, but having to manage in those extreme and ridiculous ways that we had to do a few times, whether that be fuel or tyres, that's a bit stupid and I hope that situation is altered".

Haas' new title sponsor has dismissed as conspiracy theorists those who wonder about the credibility of the Rich Energy brand. "They're a David taking on Goliath within Formula 1 and we're doing the same in the drinks business".

"We are confident we will beat Red Bull in many races this year", he said.

"We can try. If you don't try you don't achieve it". We're looking forward to taking Red Bull on both on and off the track and challenging them.

Haas is one of just two teams - the other being Mercedes - to have an unchanged driver line-up going into the new campaign, with Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean retained for a third season together.

It has a brand value, F1, which I think is unprecedented in sport.

Team principal Gunther Steiner said: "I am pretty confident we have a pretty solid vehicle".

For while the auto proudly sports the logo of Rich Energy, the British energy drink, nobody seems to have ever tasted the stuff, far less bought it, leaving many wondering how a product that doesn't appear widely available can access the sort of money needed to sponsor an F1 team.

F1 enthusiast Storey attempted a move to buy Force India last summer, while talks were also staged with British team Williams. They're uniquely positioned to exploit regulation changes. As far as I'm concerned anyone who says it doesn't exist it's like saying man never walked on the moon, or Elvis is still alive.

"I don't think so in 2019". The 2019 F1 season starts on March 14, 2019, in Australia.
