Senna was never part of the Red Bull programme - his teammate Zaugg was.

Do you guys think that every single kid that has been a part of Man U or FC Barcelona youth programs/academies eventually plays in the Champions League final? RB (and Renault) pump money in the sport and hope to get talent and promotion for their brands. They can't turn every single kid they sponsor into an F1 WDC.

And the thread title is IMO a complete misuse of the world ethics.

Red Bull don't HAVE to support any driver in the junior formulae. So none of these guys have anything to complain about. There are plenty of others who would be delighted to have RB supporting them.


Bingo.

Altruism is for charities, not F1 teams--or any sports teams, for that matter.
