Haas have bolstered their sponsorship ranks by announcing a worldwide partnership with TransferMate Global Payments.

Prior to the 2022 season there were outside fears regarding Haas’ financial health, following the termination of their deal with then title sponsor Uralkali.

The team though made it clear that finances were not a concern, with “good interest” present from companies looking to link-up with Haas.

And from that interest a major new partnership has been announced, that being with TransferMate, who as an official team partner, will “provide cross-border payments services through its unrivalled global payments infrastructure”.

Haas describe this as a “worldwide partnership” and one which will see the TransferMate branding appear on the Haas VF-22, as well as on the apparel of Haas’ drivers Kevin Magnussen and Mick Schumacher during the 2022 season.

“We’re delighted to welcome TransferMate and we look forward to a productive working partnership in 2022 and beyond,” Haas principal Guenther Steiner told the team’s website.

“It’s clear that as a brand TransferMate prides itself on the delivery of the very best product.

“We share that ethos and ultimately, we’re both in sectors where innovation is rewarded and actions need to be executed with confidence and precision. Efficiency is key to everything we do in Formula 1 and working with TransferMate adds another deliverable to our operations.”

Sinead Fitzmaurice, CEO of TransferMate Global Payments, added: “We’re delighted to become an official team partner of Haas F1 Team. The partnership brings together two like-minded organisations, each with a strong commitment to challenging norms through innovation.

“We’re looking forward to seeing our partnership group throughout the 2022 Formula 1 season. It promises to be a very exciting year for both ourselves and the Haas team. It’s only fitting that we’re joining forces on the road ahead and setting new standards of excellence for the future.”


Haas are currently in dispute with former title sponsor Uralkali, with both sides demanding payments, Uralkali requesting the return of money they had already paid for the 2022 season, while Haas want compensating for ‘loss of profit’.
