File photo of Austrian-Canadian businessman and billionaire Frank Stronach of "Team Stronach" holding an Austrian flag as he checks his watch during his final election rally in St. Poelten March 1, 2013. Austro-Canadian billionaire Frank Stronach is to retire from Austrian politics after a year-long adventure that culminated in a poor poll showing and the near self-destruction of his party.The maverick 81-year-old industrialist scored a disappointing 6 percent in national elections last month, after voter disenchantment with the centrist status quo had propelled him as high as 10 percent in early opinion polls.
