Klien still in the running for HRT seat

Christian Klien believes he is still in the running to secure the second seat at HRT for the 2011 season. HRT are still yet to fill their second seat for the 2011 season, and it is thought that the team are still searching for a pay driver to partner Narain Karthikeyan. However, Christian Klien, who raced for the team on a number of occasions last year has revealed on his official website his "manager Roman Rummenigge is in permanent contact with the (HRT) team's management." The Austrian driver also told his official website that he does not think that HRT's Vitantonio Liuzzi or Giorgio Mondini are better placed to secure the drive due to their recent test outings, saying "All tests were done with the 2010 car, which I have raced on five weekends last season." Klien added that if he doesn't secure the seat, then 'plan B' is to find a third driver role elsewhere in F1. "If neither works out you will certainly find me racing elsewhere."
