Klien rejects Red Bull offer

Despite being offered a fully funded Red Bull ride with champ Car’s PKV Racing in 2007, Christian Klien has declined Dietrich Mateschitz’s rather blunt suggestion to pack his bags for America…

Understandably the young Austrian wishes to remain in F1 and will now focus upon landing either a testing role or securing a race drive with one of the remaining F1 “minnow’s?” With rumours suggesting that Anthony Davidson will move to Super Aguri in 2007 the only seat remaining available would be with the newly acquired ex-Midland F1 operation.
