Red Bull: Austria will host F1 race in 2014

Red Bull says Austria will host F1 grand prix next year, first since 2003

VIENNA (AP) -- Red Bull says Formula One racing will return to Austria in 2014 after an 11-year break.

It says the Grand Prix of Austria has been provisionally scheduled for July 6 in Spielberg, which also hosted the race from 1997-2003. The track has been slightly modified since to improve safety.

Red Bull says its owner "Dietrich Mateschitz and (F1 boss) Bernie Ecclestone have reached an agreement to bring back Formula One racing to (the province of) Styria."

Austria has hosted 26 grand prix since 1964, with Ferrari driver Michael Schumacher winning the last two.

The DTM touring car series has been holding races on the same track since 2011.
