Marko rubbishes boss' alleged threat to pullout from F1

Dr. Helmut Marko, the outspoken Austrian and right hand man to Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz, has denied reports that the energy drinks company could quit Formula 1 over the Multi-21 saga.

As reported in German publication Auto Motor und Sport, Dietrich was furious when Sebastian Vettel ignored Christian Horner's orders in Malaysia, that has triggered a outcry from fans and people in the paddock.

The negative publicity has irked 
Mateschitz to such an extent that he has reportedly told the Red Bull F1 team that a repeat of a similar mess could result in him pulling the plug on Formula 1 altogether.

“Nonsense. There’s nothing to it,” Dr. Marko told Bild newspaper.

A photo of Webber dining with Red Bull’s arch-nemesis, Fernando Alonso in Dubai was posted on the Alonso’s and Webber's Twitter feeds, triggering another wave of rumours.

Marko in response to that said: “It’s nice that there are at least two friends in Formula 1.”
