Despite a disappointing 2007 season, Giancarlo Fisichella is confident of remaining at Renault for the 2008 season. The 34-year old Italian has been with the team since 2005, however his contract runs out at the end of this year.
Having won two championships in a row, the 2007 season has been a bit of a disappointment with Renault unable to match the pace of the top two teams. Despite the difficulties, Fisichella is hoping to retain his driver s seat for the coming season.
“We started the season with a car that wasn t great and still we haven t got the pace,â€ Fisichella remarked. “I m doing my best and I am working really hard, and for that I am expecting, once again, to be confirmed for next year. Soon we ll know, but I don t know when.
“I m happy. On this aspect, everything is under control and I am looking forward and really want to race for Renault next year. And I m quite confident. I ve done my best but unfortunately the car hasn t been so good.â€
