Liuzzi downplays F1 talk
Vitantonio Liuzzi
Luizzi has been in electric form this season
Vitantonio Liuzzi has downplayed talk linking him to an F1 drive, instead focusing on the remainder of the International Formula 3000 campaign.

Sauber and Jaguar have shown interest in the driver ahead of next season, while Ferrari have also been tipped to sign him in a testing role in 2005.

But Liuzzi said: "At the moment I am just focused on my job.

"We are two races from the end and [closest rival] Enrico Toccacelo is very close."

Liuzzi has been in stunning form this season and leads Toccacelo in the title race by 12 points with just two rounds to go.

The series runs at the same weekends as the F1 Grands Prix, which has seen him catch the eye of the top teams.

But he said: "I am trying not to dream so much, the main job is being done by my management - I am always the last one to know anything. I think it is a bit too soon now."

Ferrari boss Jean Todt has already admitted the driver has aroused interest but said no deal was imminent.
