Liuzzi to join Force India?

There are reports in Germany that Tonio Liuzzi will be named as the test and reserve driver for the Force India F1 team later this week. The team is expected to confirm that Giancarlo Fisichella and Adrian Sutil will be its race drivers in 2008 and with Liuzzi behind them the two are going to need to remain motivated. Liuzzi impressed the team considerably in his tests at the end of last season but the new owners decided to sign Fisichella because of his experience and his higher profile.

If the news is confirmed it will mean that Christian Klien will be out of an F1 job, having been let go by Honda in order to chase the Force India F1 drive.
