Liuzzi stays on the bench

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Red Bull’s purchase of Minardi has ended Vitantonio Liuzzi’s F1 racing for this season, and their peculiar ‘driver swap’ arrangement. Christian Klien will remain in the second RB1 for the last three rounds of the year as they try to hold off BAR for sixth in the constructor’s championship.

Liuzzi is expected to get a race seat for 2006 in the ex-Minardi ‘junior’ team alongside American Scott Speed. Ferrari have confirmed the second team will not be using their engines – customer Cosworth V8s are expected.
