Klien gets the last three races with Red Bull Racing

Christian Klien will get the last three races of the year with Red Bull Racing, locking out Tonio Liuzzi. The two men were supposed to share the drive this year but heavy pressure from Austria seems to have swayed the opinions of the team and so Liuzzi has had just four races while Klien will end up having done 14 races. This hardly creates a fair comparison and it will be interesting to now see which driver will go to which Red Bull team in 2006. Our spies tell us that David Coulthard should be partnered by Liuzzi and Klien will team up with Scott Speed in the rebranded Minardi team. Having said that powerful pressures from Austria might once again push Liuzzi out of the picture.
