Klien gets the green light

The FIA, with the unanimous agreement of all teams taking part in the FIA Formula 1 World Championship, has made a change to Article 58b of the Formula 1 Sporting regulations concerning eligibility of drivers taking part in Friday practice prior to the Grands Prix. As a result of this decision, Christian Klien, who competed in the first three Grands Prix of this season, will now be  able to undertake third driver duties on Fridays, beginning with the San Marino GP, when Tonio Liuzzi makes his race debut for Red Bull Racing, alongside David Coulthard.

Red Bull Racing's Christian Horner looks set to attend the FIA meeting in Paris tomorrow.
