He has not raced a Formula One car for ten years. And yet on the Thursday prior to this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix, the co-owner of Scuderia Toro Rosso (STR), Gerhard Berger, strapped himself into an historic 3.0 litre V8 Ford Cosworth-powered 1983 McLaren MP4/1C and performed a demonstration run in Budapest, centered around the famous Chain Bridge.
What is so special about the Chain Bridge? It is the 160 year-old stone and steel suspension bridge spanning the Danube between the hilly western Buda side of the river, and the flat terrain of Pest on the eastern side of the bridge.
The Chain Bridge is decorated with lion head sculptures on the arches and full-bodied guardian lions at each end of the monumental entrance-ways, thus the 'Lions' in sponsor Red Bull's 'The Bulls and the Lions' event.
