Christian Klien will again race for Red Bull at this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix, with Vitantonio Liuzzi serving as third driver.

The team are continuing to evaluate both young drivers and are likely to announce which of them will be David Coulthard’s 2006 team mate by the end of the year.

“It’s great to have another chance to race for the team,” said Klien. “I’m learning more about the car all the time and gaining in confidence with every race. I’ll be focusing on bringing everything together in Spa this weekend and doing all I can to help the team stay in sixth position in the Constructors’ Championship, ahead of BAR.”

Spa will mark Klien’s 12th race outing of the year for Red Bull, while Liuzzi has driven in just four Grands Prix. However, the team have hinted that the Italian will get another chance to impress before the year is out.
