Vettel wants grand prix return for Austria
3 December, 2012
Austrian billionaire Dietrich Mateschitz, who co-founded the highly popular energy drink, not only owns Red Bull Racing and Toro Rosso, but also the former Austrian Grand Prix venue A1-Ring.
After a complete refurbishment, the circuit in Spielberg – which last hosted F1 in 2003 – is now called the Red Bull Ring.
Red Bull’s triple consecutive world champion Vettel said: “I was at the inauguration and had the chance to drive there.
“The track is completely F1-compatible,” the German is quoted by Austria’s laola1.at.
“I don’t know why we (F1) don’t go there. For [Red Bull] it would be great for it to be our home grand prix,” he said at an event in Graz, Austria.
