TRIBUTES TO TEAM OWNER HAAS
Tributes have been paid to legendary US team owner Carl Haas after his death was announced last week at the age of 86.
Haas achieved most of his success in the CART Indycar Series after joining forces with American actor Paul Newman in 1983 to run F1 champion Mario Andretti. The American won the title the next year and his son Michael also won the championship with the team, along with Nigel Mansell and Sebastien Bourdais (when the series became Champ Cars).
Justin Wilson took the team’s final victory in 2008 and Haas withdrew from Indycar in 2011 citing the poor economic climate.
