Haug denies Mercedes set for rally switch

By on Thursday, June 23, 2011

Jun.23 (GMM) Norbert Haug has denied reports Mercedes-Benz could switch from formula one to the world rally championship.

"I like rallying very much and in the glory days of Walter Rohrl and co I was there as a reporter," the German marque's motor racing vice president told Auto Motor und Sport.

"But we feel very well placed with our traditional and current motor sport activities," insisted Haug.

He is referring to F1, where Mercedes has its own team and supplies leading engines to McLaren and Force India, as well as the German touring car championship DTM.
