Thats big talk from a guy who threw away a very good chance he got with Force India!

He was kept by Mallya for 3 years (test driver, test drive+race drive and then race drive). He just didn't perform.

A really sad state. Right now I would not want to be a F1 driver. That they are all required to have deep pockets (with sponsorship) to be in this 'sport' is not good. Of course if one is a McLaren or Ferrari driver its the opposite. One is paid very (too) handsomely!!!

He would bring experience, however he wont as HRT will end up taking whoever can bring the most money, Kolles might as well hold an auction for the second seat

a sad state of affairs for a guy who won his f2 title in style, scored points and beat his team mate (a multiple race winner) on his debut and was touted as a possible future ferrari pilot, now trying to convince a back marker team that his experience would bring them more value than finances could.

I am not a fan of "pay drivers" infact I am 100% against the idea. I believe that only the best of the best should have the priveledge of driving any F1 car.

But in this case HRT would be better suited to taking a pay driver. Liuzi has experience, for sure, but so do a lot of drivers that havent got a seat AND they will bring more quality than Liuzi. Don't give me the crap about F2 etc he is not good enough to drive an F1 car. He proved that in a more than capable Force India. HRT should get Sato to comeback (long shot I know). He would provide not only experience but more quality than Liuzi and more money.
