Berger denies selling STR to Schumacher

Gerhard Berger has denied reports that he is considering selling the Toro Rosso team to Michael Schumacher.

Berger, the former ten time grand prix winner who owns half of the Faenza based team, rejected long time Schumacher manager Willi Weber’s recent claim that the seven time world champion might see team ownership as his future.

“I know nothing about it and nobody has spoken with me about it,” the Austrian veteran told the newspaper Kleinen Zeitung.

A relative newcomer to the team ownership game, Berger said it would make “no sense” to buy and sell the Toro Rosso squad so quickly.

He added: “But you should also ask (team co-owner) Didi (Mateschitz).”
