This could be Giancarlo Fisichella’s last opportunity to shine in Formula One

Is this Giancarlo Fisichella’s final go at being number one in the Formula One Championship.

This could be Giancarlo Fisichella’s last opportunity to shine in Formula One.

It was some what of a surprise when the Renault Formula One team retained Giancarlo Fisichella on as one of their two drivers for the season of 2007 which is now only a few months away from starting. Yet maybe with their World Champion driver Fernando Alonso leaving for the Vodafone Mercedes McLaren team and bring in F1 newcomer Heikki Kovalainen from Finland keeping Giancarlo Fisichella on the teams books for another year keeps some sort of continuity while things settle down.

Giancarlo Fisichella is a likable driver, he has many friends around the paddock and even on the race track has never really shown the killer instinct that we have seen with Michael Schumacher, which of course makes the difference between winners and losers, Giancarlo Fisichella won only one Grand Prix last season, and it is generally considered that he will need to up his game a lot in order to compete with the likes of Alonsa, Raïkkönen and Massa who are younger and have their careers ahead of them. Giancarlo Fisichella who is now 33 years old will start on the grid in March 2007, will he be sitting there in 2008?

i think now that Alonso's gone Fisi will do much better, I can imagine the renault team being biased to alonso the past 2 years...if you look at his racing history he's beaten ALL of his team mates except alonso....he just needs a bit more confidence...if he fails to win the championship no doubt it'd be the end of his career at a top team...i think he's the most underrated driver in the field...

In my opinion he will need to raise his game a lot. I used to think he was better than what he has showed these two past seasons, but he has made so many silly mistakes while been pressured on the track ( in China and in Brasil he lost control of the car while been pushed by Michael Schumacher).

Kovlainen is going to push Fisi hard. I just don't see him as Champion, maybe third but not first.

Fisi is a second tier driver. He will not win the championship in my opinion, and in fact will have a hard time winning more than a race or two.
