McLaren has slammed reports Gerhard Berger could be set to join the British team.

Earlier, Germany's Auto Bild said supremo Ron Dennis is coming under increasing pressure from the struggling Woking based team's major Bahraini shareholders.

"Auto Bild has learned that the favoured candidate as partner and team boss is the former McLaren driver Gerhard Berger," said correspondents Ralf Bach and Bianca Garloff.

The well-known Austrian Berger, also a former F1 boss for BMW and ex-Toro Rosso co-owner, said: "I have nothing on the table."

And now McLaren has also denied the story, telling us on Thursday: "This is complete and utter nonsense."
