Former Haas F1 sponsor William Storey, founder of Rich Energy, has slammed COVID-19 vaccines.

The businessman, who seems to be an anti-vaxxer, has taken every opportunity to slam public vaccines and forced lockdowns. This has resulted in him taking quite a bit of stick from fans.

In his latest rant, Storey has gone on about the situation, and has slammed COVID-19 vaccines.

“Without an ‘emergency’, they can’t push unlicensed experimental vaccines under ‘emergency’ legislation. Health professionals need to take a long hard look at themselves for going along with this sham. Biggest scandal in public health history,” Storey tweeted, as reported by formula1news.co.uk.

In another tweet, he said, “How can anyone think that the disgrace we are witnessing in #Australia is anything other than authoritarianism using a virus as a false pretext. Indefensible & people need to wake up fast. Who is instructing the politicians? #AustraliaHasFallen.”

Healthcare has been called out by Storey, so his reception will be very poor. He is planning a return to F1, so you can predict a hostile reception there.

Return to racing

“I’m delighted to announce that Rich Energy is coming back to Formula 1,” Storey said in a video message.

“Unfortunately, due to poor performance on and off the track (in 2019), regrettably I had to sack Haas.

“In the last year, we’ve worked incredibly hard to lead a renaissance of Rich Energy worldwide where millions of consumers are trying our drink.

“A strategic ally of Rich Energy has agreed to purchase a majority stake in an existing team. We did explore with the new regulations actually entering our own team for 2022, which would be Rich Energy Formula 1 Team.

“But a friend of ours has agreed a deal for a majority stake in a Formula 1 team, and we will become a partner of that team for 2021. Once that acquisition is announced, we will become the title sponsor for 2022.

“I’m really looking forward to competing with our competitors on-track. I’ll be at the first race, March 28, in Bahrain,” he concluded.
