haas has been in the news lately for all the right reasons, but the team had to deal with many issues during the process. All of this started when the Russian President decided to declare war on Ukraine, which resulted in the deaths of many civilians and soldiers and left Ukraine in a miserable state, but the country of Ukraine continues to collectively fight against the terrible acts of Russia.
This directly impacted Haas, who decided to take on Russia in their own capacity. Haas is sponsored by a Russian brand ural alkali. Haas decided it had nothing to do with a Russian brand and dropped Uralkali, which could mean the team could face a $40 million net loss in the coming year. The team also decided to drop the Russian driver Nikita Mazepin from his line-up and decided to do it Pietro Fittipaldi.
But now, as the team prepared to put that behind them, another logistical problem appeared in front of them. The two VF-22 and its spare parts are unfortunately stranded at Doncaster Airport due to technical problems on the plane that was supposed to be transporting it.

The team has both good and bad news. Cargo has arrived but it hasn’t arrived in time to get the car on track for the morning session of F1 testing in Bahrain.
“We have been looking for alternative solutions, which is a gamble given the tense situation in cargo air traffic.”
“The other teams expect most of their equipment to arrive in Bahrain on time.”
“The team’s cargo arrived at the Bahrain circuit late last night,‘ the team tweeted.
“This delay will impact our program but we are aiming to be on track for the second session on Thursday afternoon.” As reported by planetf1.
Since haas confirmed that Pietro Fittipaldi driving for them it would have been better for him to hit the track as soon as possible as he will take his time to adjust to the changes that have been made to the new F1 challengers.
