Haas ends the year just as it began. With horrid reliability. #-o
Much of that was the Ferrari PU.

The whole Haas team concept no longer makes sense to me. Sauber is moving to Audi works team, Racing point has become Aston Martin Racing, William's is partnering with Porsche and SAT are still a B team, but have their own factories in Italy. Honda put their name in the hat for 2026 new PU regs, I would not be surprised if they buy SAT. Haas has no project to go their own way and have rejected advances from Andretti on partnership. I can't see how they don't remain perennial bottom feeders. If they succeed, they'll just be a Symbian being.

If they are just about covering the financial aspect of racing, they are getting a moving advertising board worth more than TV or Press advertising and targeted at just where they want it.
OK so they are not winning, but they are nor really shaming themselves either. It would be nice to get an occasional pole, as they did, but there are only 9 0ther teams in the world actully lining up on the grid.

Without a high paying driver that may have to reassess, but with the cost cap in place and the outfit increasing in value year on year, there is probably no panic.
With 2 steady drivers they may even be lower mid table next year.
When arguing with a fool, be sure the other person is not doing the same thing.

Financially, It makes sense. From a team wanting to place higher than the midfield, it doesn't. They are relagated as middle down until they start to do their own thing. If they get to the "best of the rest", there will be a big controversy over how they're accomplishing it.
