Haas’ arbitration proceeding in a Swiss court with former sponsor Uralkali has concluded, the Formula 1 team said Sunday.

The American racing team terminated its deal with Uralkali, a Russian fertilizer maker, in March 2022 following Russia´s invasion of Ukraine.

According to a statement issued by Haas, the Swiss arbitrators ruled that the F1 team can keep the portion of the sponsorship fee up until March 2022 and refund the portion corresponding to the period after the deal ended.
