"You've got to be accessible," he said. "I see my role as team principal and CEO. For 52 weeks of the year, I am CEO of a high performing technology business with Red Bull Racing, Red Bull Power Trains and Red Bull Advanced Technology.
"If I am not at the racetrack, I am in the factory from Monday to Friday. As team principal, I attend every single race. I have attended every grand prix Red Bull have competed in since 2005.
"People need to see the boss. [Not attending a race] would be like Alex Ferguson not going to a football match."
