This video of a Honda beating the Mercedes in a drag race and the iconic image of Verstappen in Austria point out the Honda logo I bet that booth situations play in some degree in favor of the continuity of Honda at least until 2021.

It is their clothing brand. You are asking what Benetton gained from having an F1 team. Now they have a team name that is not related to their products (Red Bull is not sold as Torro Rosso in Italy might you womder)

Correct. Alpha Tauri is the bull constellation and is Red Bull’s clothing brand

Actually it's the name of the Red Giant star in the Taurus constellation.

Devil is in the details ;)
Last year before Alpha Tauri rebrand was Toro Rosso’s “most successful season” – Tost
It's too bad we didn't finish 5th. Renault cheating was exposed too late into the season. Wonder why Honda is asking for a fair fight? When Ferrari and Renault get away with cheating for most of the year, it's no wonder why Honda questions being in this sport. Add to that the joke that Michael Masi is, and sooner or later it will be Liberty and Amazon enforcing the rules since the FIA is so incompetent.

Gazprom possibly new main sponsor Renault or Alpha Tauri

Gazprom seems to be planning to enter Formula 1 as (main) sponsor. Sources reported to GPToday that the Russian state oil and gas company is in talks with Scuderia Toro Rosso (Alpha Tauri from next season) and Renault. The company would also like to sponsor a number of Grands Prix as main sponsor.
Gazprom is the largest oil company in Russia and one of the largest natural gas companies in the world.

Main sponsor of Renault or Alpha Tauri

Alpha Tauri and Renault seem logical places for Russian sponsors who want to enter Formula 1. The only active Russian in Formula 1 at the moment is Daniil Kvyat, who will be in action for another season at Alpha Tauri in 2020. Countryman Sergey Sirotkin is a reserve driver for Renault, which makes both teams an attractive option for Russian companies and therefore for Gazprom. A possible deal would be for a period of 4 years, worth 35 million euros per year.

The whole story, according to the source, depends on the construction of the second Nord Stream gas pipeline. If this second pipeline from Russia is laid by the Baltic Sea to Germany, then Gazprom would be interested in joining Formula 1.
A little bit OT: This is the Pioneering Spirit, the biggest ship in the world (Dutch pride :-)), who is working already for months on the second Nord Stream gas pipeline.
