Liuzzi may lose F1 ride (GMM) Vitantonio Liuzzi on Friday suggested that his immediate future might lie outside of formula one.
The 25-year-old Italian, who has contested 39 grands prix for Red Bull and more recently its junior team Toro Rosso, was hoping to rescue his career with Williams next year.
But with the Grove based team leaving Liuzzi out of its newly announced 2008 lineup, he told F1's official website that he might not find an alternate seat for next year.
"As we speak I don't know where my future lies, but I hope it is in F1, if only because it would be nice to see all my Toro Rosso crew again next year," Liuzzi said on Friday.
He characterises the tumultuous 2007 season, in which his initial teammate Scott Speed was ousted mid-season by his Toro Rosso bosses, as "tough", but thinks he ended the year strongly alongside Sebastian Vettel.
"Towards the end of the year, the reliability improved and I was able to remind people of my abilities," Liuzzi said.
"We were a good fit -- me an Italian driver and them an Italian team, but sadly that is over now," he added.
Recall our previous rumor that Liuzzi had contacted the NHLR Champ Car team about the possibility of taking Sebastien Bourdais' vacated seat. However our sources say that will go to Justin Wilson. Maybe Red Bull will place him in the PKV team like they did Neel Jani this year.
