I was hoping it would be Heidfeld who got the Sauber drive, but if not him then Fisi is is a good choice, far better than de la Rosa! Fisi has raced for the team before, he knows the set up there, and wants to carry on racing. Makes sense it is in a Ferrari-powered team, as he is Ferrari's third driver.
If de la Rosa goes to Campos as team leader that's fine, but Sauber will have a good car, and need a good driver to bring the best out of it - and Kobayashi.

If Fisi got in a good enough car and had good relations with the team boss he would be a championship contender alright! And he is a much better choice than de la Rosa who hadnt raced since 03 or something.

My understanding was Sauber already signed two drivers, but for some reason hasn't confirmed them yet.

I wonder what's Heidfeld going to do, Sauber already confirmed he will not be racing for them...I thought he would sign a testing deal with Mercedes looking to replace Shuey after this year but now Shuey says he wants to stay on for longer and Rosberg must have a multiyear deal as well. Of course it's questionnable whether Shuey will actually stay on but still, that's quite a gamble.

If Renault signs another driver he is pretty much screwed.

Renault must be heidfelds best shot....pretty stuffed otherwise.

I guess Sauber will get the engines cheaper if they sign him.

Can't agree with Mario's comment, he had a decent car at Renault and Alonso blew him away.

Their was mechanical differences and it doesnt help that Fisi wasnt friends with both Alonso and Flavio. it was kind of like the Alesi and Berger thing back in... 97 i think it was.

@mario

I wasn't aware of that, if that's the case then fair enough.

I agree he's is far better than Del a rosa though. His stint at Ferrari didn't do his reputation any good.

Having to drive the ferrari in Massa's set up didnt really help. Cant believe that the richest team on the grid cant even set it up for him. Their excuse is 'well it is no point setting it up when there is bout 5 races to go' it takes around about an hour to set it up, but thats too hard for them.
