Net worth of 2.6 Billion - the money he's spending is pocket change. Plus I'm sure it's not even his own personal money - it'll be coming out of the companies he owns/runs.
People will believe what they want to believe whether fact or fiction.
'tis most frustrating when they aren't open to see and/or learn which is which.

Toro Rosso will be AlphaTauri for 2020.

"Scuderia Toro Rosso will become Scuderia AlphaTauri for 2020, following the publication of the provisional 2020 entry list by the FIA.

Having debuted as Scuderia Toro Rosso back in 2006 – following the Red Bull company’s purchase of the Faenza-based Minardi team – 2020 will see the team morph into AlphaTauri, named for Red Bull’s burgeoning clothing brand."

That's strange because the price for TV Access ($3.99) they show on the same page is definitely in Canadian dollars.

It took her ages to "ask", so I wouldn't trust her answer 100%, but she definitely said US$.

No idea. Need to see when live video is active if more than one person came watch at a time.

Excellent. Thanks for clarifying. I wasn't sure she knew what she was talking about. Can you watch it on Apple tv, or do you have to go through a browser?

Interesting Mercedes development shown in practice today: pull on steering wheel to manage toe-in/out of front wheels. It's called DAS.
