Austrian Grand Prix Set For 2014 Return

The Austrian Grand Prix is set to return to the Formula One calendar next year at the Red Bull Ring.

The race, which will obviously stand as Red Bull’s home race, has been penciled in for a July 6th date on next year’s calendar, as revealed by Red Bull who released a statement this morning.

“Dietrich Mateschitz and Bernie Ecclestone have reached agreement to the effect that Formula 1 will come back to Styria next year,” The statement read.

The Austrian Grand Prix was last held from 1997 to 2003 before it lost its place on the calendar.

It is remembered as the scene of the Schumacher/Barrichello team-orders when Rubens Barrichello was ordered to move over for his team-mate on the last lap of the 2002 Grand Prix.

If the World Council officially allow the Grand Prix onto the calender, it will join New Jersey (with a June date) and Russia (with a November date) as new races on the calender.
