The Red Bull Racing team currently known as the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing F1 Team is the sister (senior) racing  outfit to Scuderia Alpha Tauri, formerly Scuderia Toro Rosso. The team is based in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom but racing under an Austrian license. The F1 outfit was established in 2005 and is currently powered by Honda engines.

The Red Bull Racing team origins can be tracked back in 1999 with links to Jaguar Racing which was owned by Ford Motor Company. The Jaguar Racing Formula One team was ultimately bought by energy drinks company Red Bull in November 2004.

Daniel Ricciardo is another notable driver who has been with the team at top level after the retirement of Webber. The youngest ever teenager to breakthrough the F1 elite  was Max Verstappen, who was 17 years 192 days when he joined the team in 2016.
