Red Bull Ring to get action?

RACE FOR RED BULL: Even though Bernie Ecclestone has debunked a 20th race rumour, the Red Bull Ring has offered its facility for the race.

VIENNA, Austria - Ex-F1 driver Gerhard Berger sees no reason why Austria cannot return to the Formula 1 calendar.

Although Bernie Ecclestone played down the possibility of an Austrian return in 2013, even after reports that the former A1-Ring's new owner Red Bull had offered the venue for the unconfirmed 20th race in 2013.

Austrian Berger, a former McLaren and Ferrari driver and ex-Toro Rosso co-owner with fizzy-drinks boss Dietrich Mateschitz, thinks his native country is in the running.

MONEY NOT AN ISSUE

"If Red Bull is in the game, nothing is impossible," he said. "They have everything: the track, the facilities, the contacts and the necessary status in F1.  Money should not be a problem."

Berger rubbished Ecclestone's claim that the 'Red Bull Ring' was inappropriate for F1 because there were not enough hotels in the region.

"The opposite is true," he insisted. "The critics should look at what Red Bull has brought into the area in terms of the hotel sector. There is a direct motorway connection to Graz; in 45 minutes you're in the city. Silverstone has a much bigger hotel problem."
