Liuzzi hopes for 'long' HRT tenure

By on Friday, March 11, 2011

Mar.11 (GMM) With HRT's stop-start debut season in memory, Vitantonio Liuzzi on Thursday would not reveal the length of his new contract with the Spanish team.

No fewer than four drivers competed for Hispania last year as the team struggled for survival financially.

"We are looking ahead to the future, but we'll see," Italian Liuzzi is quoted by the Spanish website motor21.com.

When asked the duration of his 2011 deal, he added: "I hope it's as long as possible."

The 29-year-old also made clear he rates his new teammate Narain Karthikeyan, despite some saying the Indian has only secured the drive due to his links to sponsor Tata.

"He is a very fast driver and has been in many categories; he is very versatile," said Liuzzi.

The F111 car will finally be launched on Friday.

"It is faster than the other one and I think the reliability is better than last year too. It will be a difficult start but we will know the car better as the season progresses," said Liuzzi.
