Fisichella not hopeful about Ferrari call for Monza

Giancarlo Fisichella has said that he does not expect to get a call from Ferrari to race one of their cars at Monza. The veteran Italian,
currently at Force India, has become the latest name to be linked with the seat Luca Badoer is currently occupying, and the test seat for the
following year. But the man himself denies there is any substance to the story.

“I think there is a lot of rumour and I have seen my name on the top of the list everywhere. But Ferrari didn’t call me so for me it’s nothing. If they had called me I could say something more, but I have not contacted them. I’m a Force India driver, it’s as simple as that,” the Roman told Autosport.

He admitted, though, that driving for Ferrari in whatever capacity would be the fulfilment of a long-held dream.

“Especially for me, as an Italian driver, let’s say at the end of my career, so it’s a very good opportunity. It would be nice,” he stated.

Fisichella is in the twilight of a long career, but nevertheless has impressed recently in an updated Force India. He has kept highly-rated team-mate
Adrian Sutil relatively honest as well.

He is the favourite to become Ferrari’s tester for next year.
