Fisichella to drive for Ferrari

Monza: As the Formula 1 caravan moves to Monza for the Italian GP this weekend, it's a special time for a certain, Giancarlo Fisichella.

The former Force India driver will be sitting behind the wheels of the Ferrari F-60 for the rest of the season, replacing test driver Luca Badoer who failed to make an impression on the team's bosses.

Fisichella was officially introduced to the media at Maranello on Tuesday, and even though he knows his time in the Ferrari red is limited - depending on when Felipe Massa returns - the F1 veteran is determined to make the most of it.

IN THE FERRARI RED: Fisichella was officially intoduced to the media at Maranello on Tuesday.

"Well, I feel so well. I feel very good. It was my dream really since I was very young but now it's true," he said.

"The goal is obviously to score a lot of points to keep the Ferrari team in third position in the Constructor's Championship, and it will be a dream obviously to get on the podium, but lets just do step by step," he added.
