Honda has confirmed its interest in Red Bull refugee Christian Klien for 2007.
After the Austrian driver travelled to the Brazilian grand prix last month for talks, 23-year-old Klien was spotted last week at the factory of the Brackley based F1 squad.
As well as the opportunity to replace Anthony Davidson as test driver, he is also in discussions with Spyker about the race seat next to Christijan Albers.
Honda vice-president Otmar Szafnauer admitted to ORF Kurzsport that the Japanese manufacturer is in contact with Klien.
Moreover, the driver’s father and manager, Johannes Klien, has reportedly been told that a decision is necessary in the coming days.
