Italian Giancarlo Fisichella believes he will be fighting for the drivers’ world title next year despite his disappointing 2006 season. The Roman was overshadowed by Renault teammate Fernando Alonso for the second year in a row, the Spaniard going on to take his second consecutive title after seven race wins.
“I’m confident to win the world championship; I will be a main player together with Raikkonen and Alonso,” Fisichella was quoted as saying by Gazzetta dello Sport on Monday. “I’m aware that for next year I have at my disposal a great car and a great team with whom I’ve already worked for two years, so I know them well.”
Best of Luck Fisi. Let’s hope you are capable of proving what you say.
