Berger return to the cockpit

Toro Rosso co-owner Gerhard Berger will return to the cockpit of a Formula 1 car next Thursday when he drives a 1983 McLaren as part of the build-up to the Hungarian Grand Prix.
The Austrian raced for McLaren in 1990-92 but the car he will drive in Hungary is from an earlier vintage – the MP4/1C campaigned by Niki Lauda and John Watson. Berger's cameo is part of Red Bull's 'Bulls versus Lions' event staged near Budapest's famous Chain Bridge, which is adorned by lion sculptures. The Bulls will be represented by Berger, STR's Tonio Liuzzi, Red Bull Racing's Mark Webber and other motorsport stars.
