The ex-pilot of Formula 1 Gerhard Berger has denied rumours that Red Bull and its owner Dietrich Mateschitz are tired of Formula 1.Gerhard Berger "It's wrong that he got tired of Formula 1. Of course, he is dissatisfied with the current situation in his team.But Red Bull is still a very strong team, and even in these difficult times it is unlikely that someone will leave her, especially as Adrian Newey is at the peak of his creative activity. There is no engine that can bring the chances for the title, so of course the situation is frustrating in the long run.Red Bull always had a lot of patience, and now when needed, they suffer. It's a tough time, but you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Honda, running in the Toro Rosso, is the beginning.I believe in Honda, which has a sports culture in the company, the resources and now the team with the mentality of Red Bull.I can imagine that Honda will return to its original shape and build a top-end engines.We must wait the new regulations on the engines. This Aston Martin has the resources and capabilities to do this I don't know, but I doubt it. Red Bull do not get hung up on this company".
