Bernie Ecclestone has agreed a deal with Dietrich Mateschitz for a grand prix at the renovated and relaunched Red Bull Ring in 2014.
Austria last hosted a grand prix, held at the same Spielberg circuit then known as the A1-Ring, in 2003. “Dietrich Mateschitz and Bernie Ecclestone have reached an agreement to the effect that formula one will return to Styria next year,” Tuesday’s statement read.
However, subsequent media reports, including by the German news agencies SID and DPA, clarified that the race will in fact only take place on July 6 next year if “all necessary regulatory approvals” are given.
