Red Bull Racing has confirmed today that Christian Klien will race for the team as second driver (car no. 15) at the three remaining races of the 2005 F1 season. David Coulthard will drive car no. 14, while Tonio Liuzzi will continue as the team's third driver.

Sporting Director Christian Horner commented: "Following Red Bull GmbH's acquisition of Minardi last weekend, Christian and Tonio have assured futures in F1. As a result, Red Bull Racing has decided to continue with Christian as race driver for the final three races of the year."

"Having contested the races previously, Christian will be looking to secure Championship points for the team, while Tonio's role as third driver will allow him to familiarise himself with the circuits in Brazil, Japan and China ahead of 2006."

"No decision as to which driver will compete for the team alongside David Coulthard next year has yet been made; Red Bull Racing will announce its 2006 driver line-up after the end of the season."
