Gerhard Berger (born August 27th, 1959) is a former Austrian Formula One racing driver from 1984 until 1997. With 210 starts, Berger is among the most experienced drivers of all time. After Berger retired from Formula One in 1997, he became the Competitions Director for the BMW Formula One engine supplier from 2000 until 2003. Not long after stepping down from BMW, Berger announced he had bought a 50% stake in the new Toro Rosso Formula One team in 2006. Berger sold his share of the team back to co-owner Dietrich Mateschitz at the end of 2008
