Do I need to apply for a ESTA even if my L1 Visa is Valid, but I am no longer working/living in the US

Asked over 2 years ago - New York, NY

Hello, I was working in the US and had a L1 Visa valid for 3 years, but left the US well before at the end of Jan 2012 and moved back to Europe. I would now like to visit US as a visitor and wondered if I should apply for a ESTA waiver? Wondering if my passport shows the L1 Visa still valid and I also apply for a ESTA waiver will this not cause concerns?
