Dr Helmut Marko ruled out all claims that Red Bull will quit F1 over the 'Multi-21' affair
Apr.18 (GMM) Dr Helmut Marko has scoffed at reports Red Bull could quit Formula One over the 'Multi-21' team orders affair.
According to Germany's Auto Motor und Sport, owner Dietrich Mateschitz was furious when Sebastian Vettel ignored his bosses orders in Malaysia, triggering Mark Webber's anger and a slew of negative publicity.
Billionaire Mateschitz reportedly told the Milton-Keynes based team that a repeat of the team orders mess could result in him pulling the plug on F1 altogether.
Nonetheless, the affair dubbed 'Multi-21' continues to cause headaches for Red Bull.
Marko said: "It's nice that there are at least two friends in Formula One."
"No," the Spaniard told Marca sports newspaper.
"How are you going to leave a team that is giving you a great car like that one?"
De la Rosa rubbished the conspiracy theory about Red Bull sabotaging Webber's RB9 in China last weekend.
"There is no sabotage," he insisted. "His teammate didn't follow a team order. He (Vettel) apologised.
"The fuel (situation in qualifying in China) was a mistake, and it's happened elsewhere before.
"I would like to be in his (Webber)'s skin. I don't see the controversy.
"It would be a problem if he wasn't in a position to win races," he added.
