Dietrich Mateschitz Death
The leader of the Austrian team, current constructors’ champion, dies at 78.
Sad news that is released in the midst of a great moment that Red Bull Racing is going through in F1. This October 22, it was announced that Dietrich Mateschitz, the founder of Red Bull, has died today at the age of 78.
A few days ago he began to circulate around the ‘paddock’ that he was seriously ill. Unfortunately, the rumors and information about it became unfortunate news.
For some time now, the head of the energy drinks team has not appeared in public. Helmut Marko, Mateschitz’s direct contact with F1, refused to reveal anything about the tycoon’s health. “No comment, it’s a private matter, we don’t comment on it,” he declared when asked.
He never married, although he is credited with the odd child. He has his own island Laucala, in Fiji, which he bought from the Forbes family for 9 million euros, although his main residence is in his native Austria. He also loved stunt sports, flying his Falcon 900 and Piper PA-18 monoplanes and also owning his own submarine, a Deep Flight Falcon 3S.
Two F1 teams
Mateschitz was always interested in the sport of speed and became a patron of F1. In 2004 he took over the Jaguar F1 team and then started Red Bull to which he later added Toro Rosso on top of the sporting ashes of Minardi. The team, in fact, is still Italian and recently remodeled the old Ostereichring, to convert it into the Austrian Red Bull Ring.
In 2010, Sebastian Vettel won the first title for Milton Keynes. And then the one from Heppenheim linked three more in what was a glorious circle for the Austrians (from 2010 to 2013) of eight World Cups. Then came the overwhelming dominance of Mercedes in the hybrid era. That monologue was brought to an end by the energy picture again. Max Verstappen defeated Lewis Hamilton in Abu Dhabi and took the title in 2021. This year, Red Bull has secured the double. It has swept both in the pilots section (with an imperial Max) and in the Builders section.
The sports empire raised by Mateschitz also includes soccer teams such as RB Leipzig, New York Red Bulls and Red Bull Salzburg or the EHC Red Bull Munich ice hockey team.
