Former Nurburgring chief Walter Kafitz has re-emerged at Austria's A1-Ring.

But he said the Spielberg circuit, now owned by the energy drink and officially called Red Bull Ring, is not set to revive the Austrian grand prix.

"I've been here only a few days, just absorbing all the information.

"Formula one is not currently a topic," he is quoted by Kleine Zeitung newspaper.

Kafitz would not comment on the shambles at the Nurburgring, where the operators of the German grand prix venue are being evicted, and former managers potentially charged with financial crimes.

"What went before," he insisted, "went before."
