Would make sense to offload Torro Roso, it's an expensive luxury, hardly get much sponsorship screen time and have gone backward (understandably) since they had to make their own chassis.

Sure someone will buy them if the price is right.

Hamilton etal commentary may yet ring true re RB in F1. There is money in leaving on top TBH. Renault has done it in the past and may be regretting their continued interest in F1 right now considering the lack of front row success since Alonso left.

I have wondered often how Redbull has the cash to fund so many things... stunt planes, off road racing, drift car, motorcross, F1, nascar, MotoGP and on and on...not to mention, not that it mattters, I can not stand the taste.

"Renault has done it in the past and may be regretting their continued interest in F1 right now considering the lack of front row success since Alonso left. "

Heh ? They're still riding on success with RBR much like they did with Williams and Benetton. You're obviously dealing with the Lotus renault GP team, but it's not even theirs anymore, so it's just free publicity as long as it keeps the name which is until the end of next year.

They might quit earlier due to the current engine decision by the FIA and maybe fully rebrand the engine they supply to RBR to Infiniti.
