Scuderia Toro Rosso

Scuderia Toro Rosso, (Red Bull Stable in Italian) is a new Formula One racing team (initially known as Squadra Toro Rosso - Team Red Bull) owned by the drinks company Red Bull and former racer Gerhard Berger, which will make its racing debut in 2006 Formula One season. The team principal is Franz Tost, formerly of BMW's motorsport division.

The team is based around the now defunct Minardi team and will be based at Minardi's factory at Faenza, Italy for at least 2 years - a condition of Minardi boss Paul Stoddart's sale of the team to Red Bull in 2005. Scuderia Toro Rosso will compete in Formula One as a Red Bull 'B' team to develop the careers of upcoming drivers from the 2006 season onwards alongside their sister team Red Bull Racing.
