Dude youre so right! They even copied the whole 4 wheel approach. They cant even come up with an original number of wheels.
But please...Continue crying about americans. Haters gonna hate!
On a serious note, HAAS has taken an extremely semsible approach. The entire team has been 100% transparent with the approach. They know they can't outdesign existing teams with just NASCAR experience. They are not going to reinvent the wheel and they admit that they first have to learn the game before even thinking about finishing near the top. Even in industry, companies try to hire experienced employees from competitors if they want to move into a market segment. This is nothing new.
The mods have specifically mentioned that this isnt a thread to compare the similarity of cars. All F1 cars share a majority of the critical design aspects. People like you are only going to look for similarities because you want to discredit. You are not going to set your bias aside to make an accurate technical assessment.
Do you want a team to join knowing they will be 4 seconds or more off pace? Do you just want a 2 class field? Maybe you want less teams racing? Or do you really just want to talk trash.
