Infiniti Red Bull Racing remain committed to Formula One for the long term despite the fact that Adrian Newey will step back from the Formula One operation following eight season's with the Milton Keynes based outfit. 

Red Bull's motor racing adviser, Dr Helmut Marko has stated 'We will do whatever is necessary' to ensure that the team remains competitive and can continue to be successful in the future and that is why Newey will be taking up a mentoring and advisory role with the team from next year onwards.

When Newey's new agreement with the team was announced last week, team boss Christian Horner was very quick to point out that Newey will have a key role in the design of the 2015 RB11.

The team have won the championship double for the past four season's and although Marko admits that the transition period following Newey's move will be tough however he said that the reason the company are involved in Formula One is because they are passionate about Formula One and wouldn't be in the sport if they were not passionate about it.

Formula One heads to the Austria for the time since 2003. In 2004, Red Bull bought the circuit and over the past decade the company has invested €70 million upgrading the circuit and it's facilities and as a result the sport is extremely excited to going back to Spielberg for the race. 

Not only have Red Bull redeveloped the old A1 circuit but the Formula One team has contributed an awful lot of time and money into Milton Keynes where their HQ is and they would not have done this if they were not committed to Formula One.
