Renault's Giancarlo Fisichella is 'hoping' for a good result at the Fuji International Speedway this coming weekend.

Fisichella has gone off the boil a bit of late and hasn't scored any points now since the British Grand Prix at Silverstone back in July, when he brought his R27 home in eighth place.

He is keen therefore to bounce back in Japan and after his first lap retirement at Spa, he is definitely wants to put the Belgian GP behind him.

With no contract signed for next year either, the Italian knows that he could do with some good performances to ensure he keeps his drive with the regie.

"There isn't much to say about the Spa weekend to be honest. It was a complicated weekend, and it was made more frustrating by the fact that the car was working well," he noted.

"My concentration is now on the final three races, where I am looking to have some good battles and score more points.

"Japan is a country I like in general, and I have always had a fun time racing here.

"I have been on the podium both times I have raced for Renault in Japan, and I am hoping for another good race at Fuji this year."

Asked if he is looking forward to going to Fuji, especially as it is a new track, Fisichella added that it is always interesting to go to a new place.

"It breaks up the routine from year to year when things change around. And for the drivers and also the engineers, I think it makes our job a bit more interesting," he added.

"To be honest, this isn't my first time in Fuji because I raced there back in 1993 in F3 - but the circuit has changed a lot since then. That means I will have plenty of work to do learning the track," he summed-up.
