Wealthy Power have teased main information relating to a possible return to Components 1 as a sponsor, now saying that it is going to be delivered subsequent week.
Wealthy Power haven’t been in Formula 1 since September of 2019, when their ill-fated title sponsorship cope with the Haas workforce formally got here to an finish after what was a disastrous — and from a fan’s perspective, fairly comical — sequence of occasions that summer season.
However firm co-founder and CEO William Storey has been adamant that the model’s black and gold will likely be returning to Formula 1 for the upcoming season, calling it “the greatest comeback since Lazarus” and tweeting in regards to the matter with captions resembling “Not long now”.
Now the corporate have introduced that they are going to have “main information subsequent week” in regard to that return.
In fact, if this sounds acquainted — as in, one thing that was mainly stated final week — that’s as a result of it’s, and it was.
We merely can’t not point out the truth that Storey additionally stated that the model could be saying their Components 1 return throughout the first week of February, which is now up to now.
So whether or not or not something truly will get introduced subsequent week — other than one other potential “main information subsequent week” publish (which might certainly set Twitter ablaze but once more)– stays to be seen. Nevertheless, search for subsequent week to be fairly an entertaining week as followers await the announcement — and particularly after the announcement is made, if it certainly comes.
Storey posted this message on Thursday — once more, with out clarification — in regards to the day being a “implausible day” for the corporate, with yet one more reference to Components 1.
A number of followers speculated that one thing had been signed, whereas others responded with the standard jokes and criticism in regards to the matter.
Storey additionally stated earlier this week that the corporate could have some major announcements to make about their involvement in the US, presumably in motorsports as nicely.
Whereas their failed Haas partnership garners a lot of the publicity, it could’t be ignored that they did sponsor one of many 33 vehicles within the Indy 500 discipline again in 2019 — and it didn’t finish in catastrophe, both.
The Bahrain Grand Prix is scheduled to kick off the 2021 Components 1 season on Sunday, March 28 at Bahrain Worldwide Circuit, with preseason testing scheduled to happen on the monitor from Friday, March 12 to Sunday, March 14. Will the model formally be again within the sport by then?
