Austria.- One week after reliving the excitement of the 2021 Mexican Grand Prix after a year of absence in Debate We want to let you know where the foundation of the team comes from racing, in which the Mexican Sergio “Checo” Pérez participates as a runner.

Dietrich MateschitzAustrian businessman and billionaire, the richest man in his country, was born on a distant May 20, 1944, who became interested in the energy drink company after a trip to Thailand, while he was a worker for the cosmetics company Biendax.

His company demanded that he travel the rest of the world and on his way to Asia Mateschitz met Katring Daeng, a drink that would become Red Bull in 1984. In a contribution with the former businessman Chaleo Yoovidhya together they were able to own 49% of the actions of the producer of energy drinks and time after the Formula 1 teams.

Dietrich Mateschitz decided to venture into Motorsport. Red Bull was the sponsor of different extreme sports events and later became a sponsor of different teams of the Formula 1. It would be in 2004 that the founder of the company would break it big by adding RB in the races as a new team.

Minardi went on to be recognized as “Scuderia Toro Rosso” (Red Bull in Italian), being another of the genius that Mateschitz created, as he managed to subtly imitate the Italian giant “Ferrari” within the most popular competition of racing.
