The British government is investigating Liberty Media's propsed takeover of Formula One.
The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), responsible for strengthening business competition and preventing anti-competitive activities, has announced an "inquiry" into the Liberty deal, with a verdict expected in early 2017.
Meanwhile, two names liked with roles in the new Liberty Media-owned F1 have played down such speculation.
Gerhard Berger welcomed Liberty's involvement but told Austrian Servus TV: "No, I'm not in the group, I don't have the time."
Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz also dismissed similar talk, telling Spain's Marca sports newspaper: "That would be a big challenge, but I have a job that takes up all of my time as well as many other obligations and interests."
