Scuderia Torro Rosso confirms Liuzzi and Speed

Tonio Liuzzi and Scott Speed will race for Scuderia Toro Rosso in 2006. Switzerland's Neel Jani will be the test driver. The news means that America will have its first fulltime F1 driver since Michael Andretti raced for McLaren back in 1993. The team has minimal racing experience in F1 with only Liuzzi having done four races but all three, despite their youth, have been active racers since their early teens.

All three drivers are members of the Red Bull Junior Team.
