The final race seat on the 2005 Formula One grid was filled by Red Bull Racing when they confirmed that Austrian Christian Klien will partner David Coulthard on the grid at Melbourne. Tonio Liuzzi, the reigning F3000 champion and contender for the second seat at Red Bull Racing, will fulfill Red Bull's third driver testing duties. The decision to race Klien will be reviewed throughout the season, with Liuzzi waiting in the wings. The confirmation of Klien at Red Bull fills all the available race seats on the 2005 F1 grid, in an offseason that has seen a considerable amount of driver shuffling, the sale and purchase of two F1 teams, the introduction of India's first F1 driver, as well as a considerable amount of battling and strategic positioning over the future of the sport and it's regulations.
