The unusual name is something that fans and pundits may struggle to get used to, even possibly including their drivers Zhou Guanyu and Valtteri Bottas – and the latter has given his reaction to the team’s branding.
Speaking with The Project’s YouTube channel, Bottas spoke on a range of topics as he prepares for the Gravel World Series in Australia during the winter break.
When asked about his team’s new name, the Finn simply responded: “Can you remind me, what’s the name again?”
The 34-year-old’s brilliant reaction sums up most F1 fans’ feelings about the change, suggesting even he is struggling with what his own team will be known as.
Due to the nature of Stake’s business, they will be unable to use that name in certain territory and instead will be called Kick at those circuits.
