Rexona (a brand owned by the dutch company Unilever) has apperently left Williams.
Any chances / whispers they will switch to RBR?

Would be a good fit.

At first glance of the Red Bull Racing page there doesn't seem to be any sponsors that would clash.

I'm sure Red Bull would have someone checking it out 😉

Unilever is Anglo-Dutch, formed in 1929 from the merger of (Dutch) Margarine Unie and (British) Lever Brothers. It's run as a single company with joint headquarters in the UK and Netherlands. So lio007 is half right. :lol:
Turbo says "Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools." oh, and "The Dutch fans are drunk. Maybe"

"In Brazil we had a first non-binding conversation with Helmut during a dinner party", explains the manager Raymond Vermeulen. "So you come into a process with each other. We then held several internal discussions with each other: about the short, medium and long-term vision." According to Vermeulen, the role of engine supplier Honda is important.
"We are confident that Honda wants to go further in terms of development."
"We still think we have unfinished business with Red Bull and Honda. We'd like to go through with the progression. Red Bull helped us in Formula One in 2015, we also have a fantastic commercial collaboration. But the most important thing remains that we want to win,"" vermeulen repeats.
"That remains the red thread. Red Bull also wants to win, they want to get the title to Milton-Keynes. And Max feels like a fish in the water with the team. Max, Jos and I agreed pretty quickly that this was the best choice."

Honda chase has also convinced the Verstappen clan. The Japanese have practically made up for a gap of over 50 hp on the market leaders. And the 2020 engine is already successfully running on the test bench.

"If the others want to be even better there, they would have to grow dramatically," Marko warns the competition.

“Max knows what's going on at Honda, he has already seen the new car and he values the continuity in the team. In the end there was a will between us and him. ”
