Klien to return to F1 in 2007?

Christian Klien looks set to continue his F1 career in 2007. The Austrian, who was dropped by Red Bull Racing following a disagreement with team management after the Italian Grand Prix, travelled to the Brazil to discuss the possibility of an F1 drive with several teams.

The 23 year-old has already been linked to a racing seat with Spyker and a testing role at Honda, after already turning down an offer to drive a Red Bull sponsored car in the Champ Car series next season.

“It was a good weekend and I had very useful meetings with teams which clearly recognised that I can bring the speed and experience necessary to contribute to their success,” boasted Christian.

“There is a lot of rumour and speculation about the driving opportunities for 2007, so it’s useful to know what the teams really want and to understand what my role is in their plans. I am excited by the things they have told me, and I’m going to be working hard to finalise the best opportunity in the coming weeks.”

“Of course it was frustrating not to be racing at Interlagos which is a challenging circuit and again produced a great race, but it has confirmed my determination to be in Formula One next season.”
