Vijay Mallya has confirmed that ex-Renault driver Giancarlo Fisichella will be the numeber one driver for Force India for 2008. The Italian F1 driver will be partnering Adrian Sutil, with Vinantonio Liuzzi as test driver.
“At the Barcelona and Jerez test we tried many drivers, and then we opted for Fisichella and Liuzzi,” Mallya explained. “Giancarlo, in particular, needs no introduction.”
When asked about whether Fisichella would be number one driver Mallya sai,”Absolutely, yes. He has great experience and he will help Sutil improve.
“I’ve invested a lot of money to improve the car, but I need to be realistic. I can’t make predictions. The objective is obviously to improve on what was done by Spyker last year. “We must get some points. And most of all we must avoid finishing last at the end of the season.”
