Liuzzi on Force India training camp

Thu, 29 November 2007, 02:30

Vitantonio Liuzzi is currently on a fitness camp with two contracted Force India drivers, it has emerged.

The Spanish news agency EFE revealed that the Italian, who is among several contenders for the race seat alongside Adrian Sutil next year, is undergoing a gruelling training regime with Sutil and Roldan Rodriguez, who has also inked a contract to be with the Silverstone based team in some capacity in 2008.

Christian Klien was believed the favourite to land the race seat, after emerging slightly quicker than Liuzzi in the recent Barcelona test.

But both men have been invited to test again at Jerez next week, while Sutil said recently that he believes his new teammate “will be decided between Klien and Liuzzi”.

Force India announced on Wednesday that Giancarlo Fisichella, Ralf Schumacher, Franck Montagny and Giedo van der Garde will all also test at Jerez as part of the evaluation process.

But only Sutil, Rodriguez and Liuzzi are currently doing outdoor training in the freezing snow-lined forests near Munich.

“It has been a tough few days,” Spanish rookie Rodriguez is quoted as saying.
