New Delhi: Force India driver Vitantonio
Liuzzi today laughed off speculations that he runs the risk of
losing his job to reserve driver Paul di Resta, saying there
is a mutual respect between him and the team management.

"...there has been speculation that Force India`s
reserve driver Paul di Resta is in competition for my seat. I
am not worried about these rumours; speculation is always at
the door and all over the papers," Liuzzi, who finished ninth
in Sunday`s Monaco Grand Prix, wrote in his column for
www.espnf1.com.

The Italian, who has scored points in three of the six
races this season, said he held a two-year contract and
enjoyed a perfect relation with the management of the Vijay
Mallya-owned team.

"I have a contract for two years with Force India and
they believe in me and I believe in them, so our relationship
is very good.”

"They know exactly the problems I was having in China and
Spain and they know that it was not due to anything else. Also
I scored points at the first two races and again in Monaco, so
they can see that I`m very much fighting for the team to meet
its targets," said the Italian.

"It really doesn`t worry me that this sort of stuff is
printed and it`s quite normal that you get this kind of
speculation when you are competing at the highest level,"
added Liuzzi who is bracing for the Turkey Grand Prix on May
30.
