Berger being considered as replacement for Haug at Mercedes 18 December, 2012 Dec.18 (GMM) Former F1 driver and team boss Gerhard Berger could be a candidate to replace Mercedes-Benz’s departing head of motor sport Norbert Haug. That is the claim of the Swiss magazine Speed Week, specifically naming the former Ferrari and McLaren driver as potentially in the running for Haug’s job. Austrian Berger, 54, was BMW’s joint motor sport director last decade, and until 2008 the co-owner of the second Red Bull team, Toro Rosso. “We will inform you about everything in due course,” a Mercedes spokesman is quoted by the German news agency DPA.
