Mateschitz might stay at Toro Rosso – Berger

Team co-owner Gerhard Berger has refused to rule out the possibility that 50 per cent partner Dietrich Mateschitz might not walk away entirely from Toro Rosso.

Mateschitz, the Red Bull mogul and billionaire, has made it clear, however, that he does not intend to fully develop STR’s Faenza factory, despite the looming ban on customer cars for 2010.

Berger, also an Austrian, has been in the press this week, rejecting speculation that he is in talks about selling Mateschitz’s share of the team to the Italian carmaker Lancia.

“So far, nothing is happening,” the former grand prix winner is quoted as saying by Sport Bild.

“I can even imagine that Mateschitz stays with us in some form,” Berger added.
