Haas’s new title sponsor Rich Energy has played down concerns it could be forced to change its logo due to a court case involving another company which uses a similar design.
[retrompujps01]ATB Sales Limited, which produces the Whyte bicycle brand, has brought a claim against Rich Energy and its CEO William Storey before the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court.
The case is due to be heard on the 12th and 13th of March with a judgement due on May 1st – four races into the 2019 F1 season.
Haas’s new colour scheme, which reflects Rich Energy’s branding, drew immediate comparisons with the John Player Special Lotus liveries of 1972 to 1986.
Haas has revealed its new livery following the arrival of Rich Energy as its title sponsor for the 2019 Formula 1 season. More: https://www.racefans.net/2019/02/07/haas-reveals-new-livery-2019-f1-season-london/
