Vitantonio Liuzzi has admitted his future with HRT is "uncertain" despite holding a race contract for 2012.

Liuzzi joined HRT last year before the Spanish team was sold by Jose Ramon Carabante to its current owners, Thesan Capital, and boss Colin Kolles was replaced by the former Minardi driver Luis Perez-Sala. Sala said before Christmas that HRT is in "advanced talks with several drivers" as the team looks to find a partner for Pedro de la Rosa in 2012.

However, Liuzzi insisted recently that he has a "long-term" contract that will see him at the team next season.

"It would have made no sense to sign with a team at this level on just a one year contract; you have to make it a project for the future", he told Australian Motorsport News.

But now he acknowledges that his future is in doubt.

"I have a contract to race next season with HRT but the agreement was concluded with the previous owner and now the future is uncertain," he told Brazil's Totalrace.
