Fisichella in sportscar move

Ferrari test driver Giancarlo Fisichella to compete in the 2010 Le Mans Series
Giancarlo Fisichella is to compete in the Le Mans Series in 2010 after his hopes of securing a race seat in F1 this season came to nothing.

Fisichella had hoped to secure a race seat this season alongside his role as test driver for Ferrari, but proved unable to find a vacancy on the grid.

As a result, the Italian will now make the move to sportscars – alongside his Ferrari commitments – with a full-season entry into the LMS.

A brief statement from series organisers ahead of the release of the official entry list confirmed the news, although it remains to be seen who Fisichella will drive for and in what kind of car.

Former F1 rival Jean Alesi has already signed a deal to race a Ferrari 430 for AF Corse this year.

The entry list is expected to be announced in the coming days.
