Christian Klien Secures New Job

Things looked pretty bleak for young Christian. First he's dropped by Red Bull. Next he can't even secure a ride with Force India. Lucky for him, he's managed to find at least 6 months worth of work. I wonder how the pay compares?

Klien summoned for military service

Fri 18 Jan, 10:24 AM

After missing out on the vacant Force India race cockpit for 2008, Christian Klien has been summoned by the Austrian army to do six months of mandatory military service this year.

According to reports in the former Jaguar, Red Bull and Honda driver's native country, the 24-year-old was on Thursday ordered to report for duty at Vorarlberg, the western province that houses his home town Hohenems.

Klien, however, lives across the border in Switzerland, moving him to write to Austrian authorities asking for an exemption from the army summons.

The Austrian army refused his request, confirming that he should report to the Vorarlberg barracks in March.

Klien was this week testing Mercedes-Benz's works DTM car in Portugal, the Austrian broadcaster ORF said.

Some reports said Klien's mandatory duty could be postponed if he secures a full time ride.

That is too bad Klien is a cool kid. I was in a interview room with him at the Canadian GP. You could go right up to him and have a conversation. This is when he was with BMW
