Jul.28 (GMM) For the first time, Gerhard Berger will this week get at the controls of a modern formula one single seater that he owns.
The 48-year-old Austrian, a former ten-time grand prix winner, co-owns the Toro Rosso team with Red Bull's Dietrich Mateschitz.According to the Austrian portal sportnet, Berger, who retired as a formula one race driver in 1997, has had a seat fitting so he can drive the STR car at a demonstration in the historic city of Budapest on Thursday."It will be the first time I have driven a current F1 car, let alone my own," he said."I simply want to know what it feels like."Berger ruled out completing a more serious test in the car at a proper circuit."Those days are over," he added.
