HAAS WANTS F1 TEAM: AUTOSPORT.com's Rencken & Noble noted Stewart-Haas Racing co-Owner Gene Haas is "working on plans to launch" a new American F1 team. Sources said that Haas "is working with former Red Bull and Jaguar technical director Gunther Steiner on the F1 project." The new team "is provisionally called Haas Racing Developments." SHR "recently expanded its facilities in Charlotte, which could be part of the preparations for a potential F1 involvement" (AUTOSPORT.com, 1/16).
UFC SHOCKED BY CLAIMS: UFC co-Chair & CEO Lorenzo Fertitta said that he "was surprised" by MMA fighter Georges St-Pierre's comments regarding the league's drug testing, or a lack thereof, and added that the issue "did not come up when the Canadian star discussed his departure from the promotion last month."
