On December 11 the FIA announced a formal tender process, with a very short lead time, suggesting that interested parties had already been in contact. Late last year there were rumours of a potential F1 project in the USA.

Today Haas said in a statement: “We have responded to the FIA’s ‘call for expression of interest’ regarding a Formula One entry on behalf of Haas Racing Development. We respect the FIA’s evaluation process and will share more details in the coming weeks.”

Some years ago, at prior Barrett-Jackson auction, I witnessed a car sell at a world-record price. It was a nice car, but not a remarkable one or an especially rare one. There was nothing in the catalog description that tipped off readers that it would reach a stratospheric sales price, but it did.
