Reigning world champions Red Bull left Austin without paying a bill.
Germany’s Bild newspaper reports that, prior to the US grand prix, the team pre-ordered a pair of customised, Red Bull-branded cowboy boots for Sebastian Vettel.
But Noel Escobar, the Austin-based master boot maker, told the newspaper: “We worked through the night but no one came to pick them up.
“Red Bull owes me $2,150.”
Red Bull told Bild it had to cancel the order at short notice, but is happy to pay the bill.
