As Horner said, the F1 "establishment" in the form of McLaran and Ferrari don't like seeing some upstart drinks company come in and beat them at their own game.
On top of that they are doing it with a driver seen as a upstart. If RBR had been winning with Hamilton or Alonso or even Raikkonen they'd get much less push-back.
It seems Vettel was not on many peoples radar until he popped up winning titles. If they had been paying attention they'd have known that he was one of the brightest young stars in F1 well before that.
Vettel's very first appearance in F1 came in 2006 when he was given a shot in free practice in the Turkish GP. He proceeded to (a) set the first of his "youngest driver" records and (b) set the fastest time.
