F1 » Fisichella regrets not having been able to 'show his worth'


Giancarlo Fisichella's brief Ferrari career ended with a whimper rather than a bang in the inaugural Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, as the Italian finished well outside the points again around the Yas Marina Circuit

I admire Fisi's desire as an Italian to drive for Ferrari, he has finally acheived his boy hood dream, although this may now have ruined any chance of getting another F1 drive.

I doubt V J Mallya letting him back into Force India (although he wasn't as erratic as Sutil and certainly didn't wreck so many chassis)

Only hop for Fisi now is a new team.

It was the ridiculous testing ban that caused this. He has had no opportunity to practice in a car that Ferrari themselves admit is hard to drive. Fisi is a lot better than his Ferrari performances.

@ andrew mac:

You are spot on, the lack of testing has also probably ruined drivers careers as well "Grojan?" the other issue is when a team has a superior advantage "Brawn" it is hard for the others to catch up with no testing. I would like to see GP Fridays as nominated testing days, the teams are already there so thre would be no further cost's to factor in. I do hope Fisi get's another drive.

@ Fred1:
Koba is doing a sterling job isn't he, bit rude to Nakajima in Brazil but held off Jenson and raced well in the last race. Fair point he hasn't tested and is doing well, he will be in a Toyota in 2010 providing Toyota do not pull out. 12 days to go before they decide what the budgets are for the team.

the lack of testing has not spoilt anyones career. alguersari hasnt ruined his, koba has not ruined his, etc etc. but what is disappointing is to see that badoer was not given credit for his efforts. yes, the ferrari is a bad car, but when fisi could do no better than badoer, surely that puts badoer at least as good as fisi?????

I wouldn't bother sticking up for Badoer, Richard, nobody wants to hear it, they have too much fun making out that being a little bit off the pace in the world's premiere category of motorsport, driving a difficult car that was designed around another driver, after ten years out of racing and several months without even being able to test the car, somehow makes him the worst driver ever.
