After Renault, McLaren, Williams and Racing Point, Haas aligns to the number of teams that have a UK base to the economic countemeasures against the lack of action (and work).
Despite being American owned, Gene Haas' team has one headquarter in Banbury and one in Parma, in the Dallara premises: almost the majority of staff has severed pay cuts in order to help the squad's finances.
As Motorsport.com and ESPN reported, even drivers Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen should have seen their contract related wages reduced or suspended. Under the UK law, employers can ask to government for 80% of employees' monthly salary costs up to £2,500 per month.
Now, except to Brackley's Mercedes and Milton Keynes' Red Bull, all the Motorsport Valley in the Oxfordshire have COVID-19 contrasting steps: Red Bull has still to announce the measures that wants to put into place for the shutdown period, but it will be likely to see some actions taken from these teams in the next weeks, as lockdown's end in Europe is still very uncertain. And so is racing.
