Red Bull reacts to rule change

NEWS STORY
14/04/2005

The FIA, with the unanimous agreement of all teams taking part in the FIA Formula 1 World Championship, has made a change to Article 58b of the Formula 1 Sporting regulations concerning eligibility of drivers taking part in Friday practice prior to the grands prix.

As a result of this decision, Christian Klien, who competed in the first three grands prix of this season, will now be able to undertake third driver duties on Fridays, beginning with the San Marino GP, when Tonio Liuzzi makes his race debut for Red Bull Racing, along side David Coulthard.

Christian Horner: I am delighted that all of the teams supported our request to the FIA in order to change the regulations regarding the third driver. It would have been hugely frustrating for Christian to be unable to drive a third car in Imola due to the fact that, at 22 years of age, he has driven more then 6 Grands Prix.

Christian Klien: Great News! Of course, as a race driver it is difficult to sit on the sideline while your team-mates are driving, so it is very good that I can continue to drive and also help the team at the races.
