Scuderia Toro Rosso

Red Bull has decided that it does not like the name Squadra Toro Rosso and has applied to enter the World Championship with the team Scuderia Toro Rosso. Both words mean "team" in Italian but scuderia is generally used for racing teams whereas squadra is used for soccer and other teams which feature a "squad". The change is important because once accepted teams must usse the same name for five years, unless it can convince all the other F1 teams to agree to a name change. This is not easy. The full list of entries accepted for next year will be issued by the FIA on December 1.
