I do wonder what impact this is going to have on Haas.
I know Grosjean essentially moved himself into the Haas seat with him - rather mistakenly - being convinced it would get him a Ferrari seat.
Now Haas clearly is in no way a Ferrari 'junior' team, matter of fact, with announcing keeping current drivers, there was some media backlash
that it makes no sense ferrari doesn't park a junior driver there, and voilá, a couple weeks later [or less] we have Sauber being Ferrari Junior team.
That would imho cut short any of Grosjean's prospects of using HAAS to get into Ferrari and quite frankly, if there ever was a chance, it's pretty much gone
out the window now that Sauber is going to be just that when they surely are going to park Giovanazzi or Leclerc there.
So will Haas still have the benefit of grabbing Ferrari parts like they did the past 2 seasons, or will Sauber put a halt to that more or less [ or Ferrari themselves ]
as they don't want competition from Haas for their Junior team? [ read: Ferrari's Toro Rosso ].
Could we then see instead of Toro Rosso, Haas going for Honda engines ? Sure it wouldn't do them harm to get free engines / a giant discount and Honda money ?
I think there's also a pretty nice ring to it, Haas - Honda. I mean Ferrari's Ferrari, but if the reds are going to leave them in the cold, well, where will you go?
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.
