Austria’s return to the Formula 1 calendar this year is on schedule, according to Red Bull billionaire Dietrich Mateschitz, and he is promising a treat for fans who attend.

“We are striving for a perfect race weekend with sold out grandstands,” said the Austrian billionaire, who has rebuilt the former A1-Ring circuit.

There had been some minor doubts about the race’s return, as the Red Bull-Ring was initially limited to a small maximum crowd, while circuit upgrades were still in the planning.

“The construction is on schedule, even if it is tight, and the permits are all in place,” Mateschitz told the Salzburger Nachrichten newspaper. (GMM)
