A1-Ring return chances 'more than minor' - Mateschitz

By on Thursday, March 24, 2011

Mar.24 (GMM) Dietrich Mateschitz has played down the likelihood of Austria returning to the formula one calendar any time soon.

The Red Bull boss has rebuilt the previously demolished A1-Ring, which has been renamed 'Red Bull Ring' and approved for F1-standard events by Charlie Whiting.

But although Bahrain has slipped down the 2011 calendar, and Australia's commitment to its race is diminishing, Mateschitz denied those events are necessarily good news for his Zeltweg facility.

"The probability of F1 returning to Spielberg is more than minor," the Austrian billionaire told APA news agency.
