Force India confirms Liuzzi in second car
« on: September 07, 2009, 10:40:22 AM »

Lets hope Tonio can be a bit more competitive than Badoer. I was going to have Fisi as my pick for pole at Monza in the FIF1, but I just can't see Luizzi acheiving it.

By Pablo Elizalde, Today, Autosport.

The Force India team has confirmed reserve driver Vitantonio Liuzzi will replace Giancarlo Fisichella from the Italian Grand Prix this weekend.

Fisichella left the team last week to drive for Ferrari, and it was expected Liuzzi would take his compatriot's place at the Silverstone-based squad.

"I'm delighted to give Tonio the opportunity to get back into a race seat, which I know he has been itching to do for the past two years," said team boss Vijay Mallya.

"Force India is now in a very competitive position and we need a driver who can continue this momentum. This will be the chance for Tonio to demonstrate to both the team and the field that he has the commitment, speed and professionalism to perform and I am sure he will seize this opportunity."

Twenty-eight year-old Liuzzi last raced in Formula 1 at the end of the 2007 season, and has not tested grand prix machinery since November.

The Italian, however, is optimistic he will be able to do a good job to continue with Force India's impressive form.

"I can't wait to get back into the car in race trim, particularly at my home Grand Prix in Monza," he said. "I really appreciate the opportunity Vijay has given me, particularly now Force India has a great car that's performing very well.

"I am confident I can carry on our progress. I'm very motivated, I'm in good shape and hungry to get some more points on the board.

"Although it's unfortunate that this came about as an direct result of Felipe's accident, this is my opportunity to show people what I can do and I'm really looking forward to it."

Racing is life - everything else is just waiting. (Steve McQueen)

Let's hope Tonio can be a bit more competitive than he was last time he raced.  For his sake.

I think a KERS car will get the pole at Monza.  The straights are too long.

I reckon it was a great shame that Luizzi suffered gearbox problems as I am of the opinion that he would have been in the points. :good:

I am more impressed with Luizzi at the moment than any of the others this year that have stepped into cars they've never driven before - Badoer, Alguersuari, Grosjean.

I hope both he and FIF1 continue their form for the rest of the season (although I guess the low downforce tracks are finished for the year, so it is unlikely).

I always rated Luizzi high he just had the bad luck to
be at Red Bull and STR when they were dogs
