Dietich Mateschitz Cause Of Death – How Did He Die?

Red Bull energy drinks company owner Dietrich Mateschitz has died at the age of 78. The company’s F1 team confirmed his death news on Saturday.

The Austrian founded the energy drinks company in 1984 with Chaleo Yoovidhya and helped establish it as the world leader in its industry.

Mateschitz was keen on extreme sports at an early age and soon brought Red Bull into the sporting world, where it has enjoyed success across multiple disciplines.

It also runs Junior Teams to develop future motor racing talent in single-seaters and off-road motorsport. The brand’s logos can be found across many other championships on two and four-wheels.

Mateschitz, who co-founded Red Bull in 1984 with Chaleo Yoovidhya after discovering the recipe for the drink in Thailand, began using motorsport to promote the brand soon after it went on sale. Gerhard Berger became the first driver to be sponsored by the company in 1987.

Red Bull increased its presence in F1 when it took over as the title sponsor of the Sauber Formula 1 team in 1995. By the early noughties Mateschitz was looking elsewhere and after considering a takeover of Jordan he opted to buy the Jaguar team, which Ford had put up for sale in 2004.

His family said on social media, he died after a long illness. But they didn’t say about his cause of death clearly.

Red Bull has won four constructors’ championships (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013) and six drivers’ titles, the most recent being secured by Max Verstappen at the Japanese Grand Prix.

The team is on the verge of clinching its fifth constructors’ title and can do so at the U.S. Grand Prix on Sunday.

After years of involvement in the sport as a sponsor, Red Bull purchased the Jaguar F1 team in 2004 and the Minardi team in 2005. The latter, which operates out of Italy as the company’s junior team, was renamed Toro Rosso and today competes as AlphaTauri.

He also purchased the F1 circuit in the town of Spielberg, which is now named the Red Bull Ring and hosts the Austrian Grand Prix.

“He was a man that inspired so much. He is the reason that we are here, it was his passion for Formula One and his vision that is the reason he has two teams in the Formula One pit lane. He was always enthusiastic, encouraging and supportive on the good days and the bad days.
