The Haas F1 Team has hinted that it will not radically change its livery despite the departure of title sponsor Rich Energy.

An image which has appeared on Haas’s website depicts a profile shot of one of the team’s VF-19s with the energy drink branding simply removed from around the airbox bodywork and front wing footplates.

The airbox fin appears to be the same shade of gold as before and the rest of the livery is also unchanged.

The termination of the Rich Energy deal was confirmed a week ago following a bizarre series of events which began with an initial termination announcement via Twitter.

The tweet was followed up by a group of shareholders attempting to backtrack on the declaration, to which company founder William Storey responded by accusing them of attempting to stage a coup.

Formula 1 is back in action this Friday in Singapore.
