    Will they finally get rid of that strange Torro Rosso name too? Still don't understand what this team does in F1

    Two teams funded by the same sponsor is always a bit tricky. The gap between the two teams has widened thankfully in the last years but still it doesnt feel right two have two red bull teams on the grid

    It'll be good to see the team break free of the "Red Bull's little sister" tag and be a respectable team on their own two feet.
    I hope they do well.
