Man that William Storey is one shady dude.
"Rich Energy's shareholders are understood to be attempting to save the
company's relationship with Haas after a Tweet on Wednesday said the
Formula 1 team's sponsorship deal had been terminated.
"Sources have told Autosport that the Tweet was either written or
authorised by CEO William Storey, without the knowledge of the drinks
firm's investors after an apparent difference of opinion."
The Rich Energy livery remains on the Haas cars for now.
“Clearly the rogue actions of one individual have caused great
embarrassment. We are in the process of legally removing the individual
from all executive responsibilities."
'However, on Thursday evening, a subsequent tweet from the Rich Energy
account contained a statement attributed to Storey that claimed the Haas
statement was the work of supposed minority shareholders and that he
remained in command.
'The tweet read: "The ludicrous statement by minority shareholders cosy
with Red Bull and Whyte Bikes is risible.
'"Their attempted palace coup has failed.
'"I [Storey] control all of the assets of Rich Energy and have support
of all key stakeholders".'
Who has the popcorn?
