May 25 (GMM) Gerhard Berger on Wednesday dismissed rumours he is set to return to formula one as a boss.
The great Austrian, who after retiring from formula one spent time as BMW's joint motor sport director before co-owning the Toro Rosso team, has been linked with Ferrari as well as his friend Dietrich Mateschitz's Red Bull outfit."I have no plans to move back to Austria -- on the contrary," he told the Austrian newsmagazine NEWS, addressing the Red Bull rumours."I love Monaco, where I have my office," he added.It is believed the rumours were triggered by his separation with his long-term wife Ana."The truth is I have lived away from my wife for one and a half years," he insisted.He told the Kurier newspaper earlier this month that he does not particularly miss formula one, and - despite visiting the Barcelona paddock last weekend - he intended to leave town to avoid the chaos in Monaco."Although I have many friends who call me and we talk about formula one, I've not hungry any more," he said."There are days I want to be back in the middle of it, and others where I just want to sit on a motorcycle or a kart and have fun."
