But operating chief Carlos Tavares admitted: “We are frustrated by the lack of recognition we get for beating the likes of Ferrari and Mercedes.

“It is true that I think we deserve better,” he is quoted by autocar.co.uk.

“It is clear that we must create a bigger buzz around what we do.”

In 2013, Red Bull’s title sponsor is Infiniti, the luxury arm of the Renault-linked carmaker Nissan.

Renault also supplies engines to Lotus, Williams and Caterham.
