Red Bull's junior team Toro Rosso face an uncertain future following owner Dietrich Mateschitz's decision to put them up for sale.

That move was prompted by a change in the rules on customer cars, which will be banned from 2010.

Toro Rosso get their cars from senior squad Red Bull, the only difference being that the junior squad have Ferrari engines and the senior Renault.

Sebastien Bourdais and Sebastian Vettel are promising but inexperienced pilots.
