If Red Bull GmbH in the business of throwing Milo-esque buckets of cash at a subsidiary with no hope of ever getting an equal return, I've got some ideas to pitch 'em!

RB Racing might be spending $400 Million annually.

Return must be nowhere near that.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Red Bull Racing was one of the few F1 teams operating with a net profit a few years back (crazy TV revenue, sponsorship, marketing revenue, and winning $$$). I think Mercedes was outside the red in 2019. All in all, stupid amounts of money going in and out in F1. The Netflix series has created a ton of buzz too.

In 2016 RB Racing claimed a paper profit of $10 Million because RB provided $100M of its $300M revenue.

RB writes the $100M off as a business expense.

Red Bull is a bit different since they are a customer car. Teams like Renault now alpine and Mercedes Ferrari make engines for the rest of the grid

It would be one hell of a season though


If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

If RB put $100M into RBNY annually, it would turn more than a $10M profit.

I think it is worth it from a marketing perspective.  They easily get a few hundred million worth of advertising from all the people watching their logo emblazoned car.  I think Dieter rightfully estimated that paying for sponsorship deals is likely more costly in the end then simply running the teams you want to sponsor, plus you get some assets.

The only thing that matters is that DM thinks this.
I don't see it, but it's not my money.
