Fisichella out to finish the job in Germany

Giancarlo Fisichella has set his sights on finishing in the points this coming weekend at the German Grand Prix.

Fisichella has been encouraged by the progress made by Force India this season and was particularly happy with how he went three weeks ago at the British Grand Prix.

Now he wants to ensure the Silverstone-based outfit gets some points as soon as possible, something it has yet to do.

"For sure we have made good progress in the last few events - the races we've had in Monaco and now Silverstone clearly show this. Last year we were struggling at some of the tracks to race with other teams and sometimes I would have very lonely races, but this season we've been right there fighting. It's very encouraging," said the Italian, who is a veteran in F1 with over 200 starts to his name.

"Every part we've put on the car this year has made a difference in performance so we're clearly going in the right direction.

"It's very motivating for the team and for me personally as a driver. When you're in the hunt you want it so much more.

"For the team it would be a huge boost now to get some points. Everyone works really hard and to be this close is actually a bit frustrating. To get this weight off our shoulders would really set us up for the rest of the season."

So is he looking forward to the German GP?

"The Nurburgring is a great track. There's lots of camber and gradient change and you can overtake in a couple of corners, which is obviously going to be good for us if we are midfield again," added the Italian.

"This time out I want to get into Q2, which I think should be possible, and then with a better starting position hopefully we'll be able to finish higher. We're so close to the points I want to finish the job now!"
