Liuzzi resigned to wait on F1 future

Vitantonio Liuzzi thinks he will have to wait at least another fortnight before he finds out if he has a future in Formula One.

The Italian has been dropped by Scuderia Toro Rosso for next year and is currently in talks with several outfits about a seat for 2008.

Those discussions are continuing, and he thinks there will be little news about his future plans until after the Belgian Grand Prix.

"I am working on next year, for sure," he said ahead of his home race at Monza this weekend. "My aim is to stay in F1.

"That's been my target ever since I started racing, and I want to show what I can do when we are with a competitive team, because unfortunately this year we had a lot of problems.

"But nothing is fixed, I think, at the moment. We are on a stand-by for the driver market and we probably have to wait two or three weeks to know what's going on. But I am working hard on it, and I hope I get the chance."

Liuzzi has also reiterated that he wants to keep racing next year, rather than accept a test driver role.

"At the moment I am focused just on driving, because I think in the last two years we have had not many chances to show what we can do, because we were always in difficult conditions.

"So I hope for next year that if it happens and I can stay in Formula One, that it can possibly be in a stronger situation. So I am pushing hard to be a driver; one of the 22."
