Red Bull Owner Dietrich Mateschitz Joins Critics Of F1's New Rules And Regulations
Red Bull Founder & Owner Dietrich Mateschitz "has joined the critics of F1's new rules and regulations," according to the SID. Mateschitz said that "F1 should again be turned into what it was: the pinnacle of motorsports." He added that F1 "is neither intended to set new gas milage records, nor to have conversations in a whisper tone during a race." Mateschitz also thinks "it is completely preposterous that the series is almost a second slower than last year, and that the development series GP2 partially offers more motorsports and fight and almost produces similar times to F1, with only a fraction of the budget" (SID, 3/23).
