The Italian managed just four laps on Friday after he was replaced by Narain Karthikeyan in first practice and then stopped with problems in the afternoon.
On Saturday, the Italian completed just eight laps in final practice before an engine issue sidelined him. In qualifying, the HRT driver failed to set a time after being hit by more problems.
Since he hasn't set a time within the 107 percent all weekend, Liuzzi will need the stewards to give him the green light to race on Sunday.
"It's been a terrible start to the weekend," said Liuzzi. "Yesterday I could only do four laps, eight this morning after an engine issue and this afternoon again problems so in the end I've hardly done any laps in two days.
"We'll start from last position, which isn't very positive, and it's a shame because the few laps we did weren't too bad. But this is one of the best races of the season with a great atmosphere so I'm hoping to put this behind me and have a good race tomorrow."
Teammate Daniel Ricciardo enjoyed a better day once more, the Australian qualifying in 22nd position.
"From my point of view it was not a bad session," he said. "I approached it well and did what I had to do. In qualifying you have to push 100% and I definitely did that. I went a little bit wide in some areas from pushing too much but I'd say I only lost about a tenth which isn't enough to get in front of our rivals.
"I am satisfied because the balance of the car was the best it's been all weekend but the others have also improved and we have to keep on working. Anyways it's time to focus on the race where I'm keen to put in a good performance."
