Dietrich Mateschitz: Reckons Sebastian Vettel will be stronger this season
Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz has warned Sebastian Vettel's rivals that the World Champion will be even stronger this season.
The 24-year-old is seeking a hat-trick of drivers' titles in 2012, having won his first in the deciding race two years ago before defending in dominant fashion last season with 11 wins.
Vettel has therefore become F1's youngest double World Champion, with Mateschitz saying his charge now has experience to blend with his speed.
"He still has great potential ahead of him because his experience, his consistency and his domination in different situations will be given free rein," Mateschitz said in an interview with Speedweek magazine.
"His focus in qualifying was already part of his strength but he's going to be even stronger in competition because he knows the complexity of his sport even better now."
