Concerns over Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz’s health are increasing day by day with rumors spreading around.
Rumors are spreading like wildfire over the health of the wealthiest Austrian on earth. Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz is rumored to be suffering from a grave illness.
The 78-year-old hasn’t been seen publicly for months now. Although the man is insanely private, the concerns over his health are rising now.
“He’s not doing well,”
said Roger Benoit, the veteran F1 correspondent for the Swiss newspaper Blick.
“Insiders report that he has not even been available to his closest employees lately,”
the newspaper added.
A Red Bull spokesperson gave an official statement amidst the rumors:
“As you know, it has always been important for Mr. Mateschitz to keep his private life out of the public eye.
“That hasn’t changed.”
Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko is also pretty close to the Red Bull owner. He always remains in very close talks with Mateschitz on Formula 1 where the company owns two teams.
However, Marko also denied giving any comments on the health of the Austrian:
“No comment, it’s a private matter. We don’t comment on it,”
Marko told a German broadcaster.
Even after Max Verstappen had a disappointing weekend, Red Bull won the Singapore GP. Sergio Perez came home to secure his second season victory, keeping Charles Leclerc at bay.
Formula 1 will head to Japan for its next round coming this week. Max Verstappen again has a chance of wrapping the championship in Japan.
