Everything falling into place for F1's return to Austria.

Jan.3 (GMM) Austria's return to the Formula One calendar will definitely go ahead next year.

Earlier, although circuit owner Red Bull was given an official spot on the 2014 calendar, organisers did not have all the necessary local approvals in place.

Having demolished the old A1-Ring in Spielberg, and relaunched the 'Red Bull Ring', the energy drink company found itself limited to allowing a mere 40,000 race-day crowd to gather.

But Kleine Zeitung newspaper reported on Friday that local authorities have now granted Red Bull's application for a total race weekend crowd of 225,000 for the late June event.

And administrator Harald Schnedl has also been reviewing a full noise, emissions and traffic engineering concept, submitted by Red Bull for the 2014 race.

"I have granted the major events permission," he confirmed to the newspaper.

His approval was granted under a new events law, which does not allow formal appeals to be filed.
