Mateschitz expects title double
Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz says he expects the team to wrap up both the drivers' and constructors' championships soon.
Team principal Christian Horner and championship leader Sebastian Vettel have both been quick to play down the chances of the drivers' title being won in Singapore, while the team holds a 126 point lead with a maximum of 258 points still available. Mateschitz, however, admitted that emulating the result of 2010 was close and praised Vettel for the manner in which he has dominated the championship this season.
"We anticipate that, once again, we will achieve both of the titles this year," Mateschitz told DPA. "The fact that Sebastian is highly capable, we knew. That he would be able to deliver it so consistently over a long time has surprised many people."
Mateschitz also said that he had lined up Vettel's present for when he becomes a back-to-back world champion.
"The same as last year. His championship-winning car."
