When asked if Liuzzi's job as the team's driver is safe for the final five races of the season Vijay Mallya replied in Friday's press conference: "Absolutely, he's OK for the next five races and maybe even beyond. He knows that he needs to perform as well. We've done all we can to produce a car that's now getting competitive and as the driver, he also has to deliver his part of it and he knows that.
"This game is unpredictable in more ways than one and there aren't any guarantees attached to either a car or a driver. But I think I would say that I'm quite happy and quite optimistic that the cars will go well and both drivers will do well."
Liuzzi completed his last Formula Grand Prix back in 2007 for Scuderia Toro Rosso. He finished thirteenth at the Brazilian Grand Prix.
