I thought we already had a group for this team... 2020 Racing Point / 2021 Aston Martin

Mate, did you open a topic and just question your self as to why the topic was named so?

Why is a team powered by Honda promoting as Aston Martin, a competing automaker? Seems rather parasitic behavior to piggy on someone else's success, and success the have, regardless of whining spoilt child one can find in Verstappen.

"Team: Aston Martin Red Bull Racing" is the title F1 official website is using in their register.

It is actually no different from Infinity Red-Bull racing, where Infinity the car maker, teamed up with Redbull to Fund a Racing Season in return for some of their own marketing...

Its a contractual Agreement, Aston Martin probably pays Red bull some money for branding, and collaboration in making Hyper cars.

Next year AM will have there own project separate from RB.

I disagree with you. It is not the same. 

RBR was powered by Renault, and Infinity and Renault were under business partnership and common interest. AM is not under any partnership with Honda as far as I know. in fact, in area of sporting vehicles they are competitors. There is very clear delineation of interests. Do you have intellectual difficulties to understand this conflict?

No, I don't have any difficulty understanding both the 'arrangements'.

By 'conflict' I realize that you are confusing what AM does and what Honda does. AM produces niche cars, they are NOT about building engines, so they don't have an issue with the Honda Brand for PU's. They want their names against the Redbull cars. As a matter of fact AM teamed up with cosworth for the Valkyrie project, and from next year will be teaming up with Mercedes. So whether AM has any other partnerships with Honda or no, is irrelevant.

Honda are in the game to provide engines and respect the arrangements between AM being the Sponsor for Redbull. AND THAT IS WHY THIS TEAM IS CALLED ASTON MARTIN REDBULL. There is NO conflict of interest.

When I said what I said, I was quite aware, that it is REDBULL that I'm talking about... Redbull - which unlike a lot of the other 'car manufacturing F1 teams' that have sister companies, is a brand and identity and a product in it self. They DONT have any issues in forging partnerships with a Adventure bike company, a plane racing championship, or a guy who wants to jump from space.... For the SAME reasons, they don't give differentiate between Renault or Infinity or Aston Martin or Honda against their interest. For them, as long as the Redbull name is prime focus, they are OK.

They are very clear about what they want - to be a part of the competition in all possible thrilling activities in the world where they can market them selves.

SO,,, Having said that, Please once again consider Reading what I wrote. By the look of it, its not ME who has a shortfall on understanding this whole matter in all its depth.

I was only comparing Redbull with its self, coz they are in a unique position within F1,, not OTHER car manufacturing teams like Ferrari, Mercedes, Renault or Alpha Romeo.

AM don't just produce niche cars, they are also a manufacturer, no matter if they are just in it for sponsorship. You have an association of 2 car manufacturers on one team, whether one powers the RB or not. To top it off, it starts with the AM name... That is CATASTROSPHIC in terms of brand terms. It's a PR disaster! Do you think Honda is happy with this, they are basically piggy-banking on the Honda brand?? Unless of course, there is some association between the 2 manufacturers (as suggested), which is very... unlikely

It is a collaboration of opportunistic companies Like AM and Honda promoting themselves besides the technical, structural and commercial setup that Redbull offers.

Honestly if they don't have a problem with it, I'm not sure why we here, or anyone anywhere should.

Honda invested huge sums of money, sweat, people lost their careers, their name was dragged through mud, and now, when is time to harvest what they sowed, success is near, someone else comes in, and for a few bucks with parasitic mindset determined to live on c#cktails belonging to someone else. 

There used to be a rule, that a team's name was structured with maker of body/chassis first, and PU maker after that, but it seems some people are after tradition only when it is convenient for them.

To make things worse, this driver, Verstappen, began to talk like Alonso, who had found his disciple. 

That's the world we live in. Some people are incapable to recognize right from wrong. There is a lot of it for very long time world wide.

Things can and do go wrong from time to time, and struggle for perfection continues.

Agree.... BUT this just seems... wrong

He strikes as a frustrated figure nowadays, understandably so. He's got the talent to win the championship, and he knows it...

He should rather stay mum on his frustrations, I'm sure teams have already started taking notice... Look how difficult it has been for Alonso to get back in

The moment Alonso pull that camping chair stunt, and badmouth hand which fed him, I think he signed off on advancing his career in the F1. Renault taking him on for next year probably suffered brain fade and forgot some matters that mattered.

I would be not surprised to learn if most of them want to drive the MB car. Verstappen is not the only one. In my thoughts however one should try to keep frustrations under control. If Vettel can manage that, then it can be done. MB has only 2 seats, and it's their decision who drives for them. That sense of self-entitlement is far too prevalent in F1.
