Austin calls off Red Bull/Coulthard F1 demo

By on Thursday, August 18, 2011

David Coulthard will not be driving a formula one car on the streets of 2012 US grand prix host city Austin this weekend.

The 13-time F1 race winner was slated to drive the Red Bull show car pending the approval of a city filming permit.

"Due to feasibility, a formal formula one show car demonstration that is open to the public will not be executed this week," the energy drink company said in a statement.

Red Bull, whose F1 show car is already in the US, added that it is "excited about the upcoming US grand prix ... and eager to drive awareness of the race and the sport in general to a broad audience".
