More races for Klien

Red Bull Racing has decided that Christian Klien will be given the chance to race for the team again in Turkey and at Monza. Tonio Liuzzi will continue his apprenticeship as the team's third driver and is now expected to take over the second car in Belgium. This will mean that Liuzzi will end the year having done eight races while Klien will have had 11.

There is no great significance in this because it is believed that Liuzzi has a contract to race for the team next year although it is a little odd that the team continues to support Klien, despite the fact that he has scored only four points this year, while David Coulthard has managed to collect 19. In 2004 Klien scored three points for Jaguar Racing.

Liuzzi scored one point on his F1 debut at Imola.
