Red Bull Says Vettel’s F-1 Success Won’t Scare Away TV Audience

Red Bull isn’t worried about Formula One becoming a turnoff for fans after Sebastian Vettel won a fourth straight title, manager Christian Horner said.

Vettel was jeered at races in Belgium, Italy and Singapore, and average television audiences have declined 5.4 percent in his native Germany this season, according to RTL Group SA’s German unit. His team, bankrolled by billionaire Dietrich Mateschitz’s energy drink maker Red Bull GmbH, has won 47 out of 165 races since entering the series in 2005.
