Klien To Race Again For Hispania At Abu Dhabi
Christian Klien will once again race alongside Bruno Senna at Hispania Racing in Abu Dhabi.
The talented Austrian driver, who previously raced for Red Bull and Jaguar, will be starting his third Grand Prix weekend with the Spanish minnow team having been brought in to replace Sakon Yamamoto.
Klien has already impressed with the car, outqualifying Bruno Senna in both of his previous races. He was unlucky to suffer mechanical problems before the start of the Brazilian Grand Prix last weekend which put him 6 laps down before he even started.
“It’s my third chance to compete for the team this season and I’m getting more and more used to the car and the crew,” said Klien, who was initially signed as a test and reserve driver earlier this year before Hispania began rotating its race line-up.
“I hope we can achieve some great results and have a clean weekend. We should have a similar pace to the one in Brazil, so I think we can be a challenge for the [other] new teams.”
Hispania should be seriously considering him for a race seat next year. A talented and overlooked driver is CK, and an all round good bloke.
