Gerhard Berger has stridently denied reports he could become involved with the Force India team.

Following the withdrawal of his 50 per cent share in Toro Rosso, it was reported he - and other colleagues of the Red Bull sister team - might switch his allegiance to the squad run by Indian billionaire Vijay Mallya.

Responding to the speculation, he told the Austrian news agency APA: "There is nothing to it. There have been no discussions, and I have no interest."

Despite denying the Force India link, the former grand prix winner and ex-BMW motor sport director said he would not exclude a return to the formula one paddock at some point in the future.

"No, no. On the contrary, I am open to something else. Formula one is and remains my life."

But as for the current rumours, he said "nothing is on the table at the moment".
