Red Bull boss Christian Horner believes that Mercedes’ success is driving fans away from the sport.

The German team have dominated the last two seasons and have won all but six races.

Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg battled for the title on their own in 2014 and 2015, and Horner is adamant is it killing the sport.

He said: "Predictable, serial results and serial winning is difficult for any sport.

"We were accused of it, but we enjoyed the continued success and longevity of the sport.

"Two of our world championships went to the last race, and we never finished first and second in a championship.

"Inevitably, with predictability, people get turned off and it needs a rejig to bring it closer together.

"I don't think anyone wants to see Fernando Alonso just taking part, we want to see him competing.

"We want to see Daniel Ricciardo competing, and we want to see Sebastian Vettel competing against Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.

"You can't expect the teams to achieve that, that's for the regulator and the governing body to come up with a set of rules that achieve those objectives."
