Vitantonio Liuzzi has admitted he is "very confident" about returning to the F1 grid next year with Force India.

The 27-year-old Italian is currently the Silverstone based team's test and reserve driver, and he recently returned to race action in the A1 GP series.

"There are good chances for me to get back to racing in F1 with Force India," Liuzzi is quoted as telling Italy's Autosprint magazine.

"I have a contract until 2011, while Fisichella and Sutil's contracts expire at the end of the year," he added.

Liuzzi, who took pole position on his recent A1 debut in Portugal, has contested 39 grands prix for Red Bull's F1 teams.
