Haas The Fifth F1 Team To Furlough British Staff
Haas now the fifth F1 team to furlough British Staff following McLaren, Williams, Racing Point and Renault already furloughing staff, meaning half of the grid has now announced such measures.
Seven of the 10 teams are based in the UK, with champions Mercedes and Red Bull the only two yet to confirm any salary reductions.
The team told the F1 website that key personnel will continue to work, but also at a reduced salary. Haas also has staff in the US and Italy.
Under the British government’s furlough scheme, employers can claim for 80 per cent of employees’ usual monthly wage costs up to £2,500 per month.
