Vitantonio Liuzzi will get back behind the wheel of an F1 car for the first time since leaving Force India tomorrow.

The Italian driver will test for HRT in Barcelona, the team confirmed.

team principal Colin Kolles saidL “As I always said our target is to get the best possible package.

“Tonio is a strong contender for the second seat given that he has a lot of experience in Formula One. We hope his comments and feedback will help the team to progress in the right direction”.

Liuzzi added: ??Hispania Racing is a team with potential that can grow in the future and could have a good package for the season with the new car.

“There is still a lot to do because we are starting tomorrow with the first test, but there will be a lot to come. I am sure it will be a good day and I am looking forward to the next step”.

HRT have the only vacant seat for the 2011 F1 season, alongside Narain Karthikeyan.

A spokesperson added: “Every driver that we test is being evaluated for a race seat.” Karthikeyan was the only person to drive for the team in Valencia.
