Fisi after a troubled weekend

After a troubled weekend in Turkey, Giancarlo Fisichella is determined to fight back and get in the points at his home Grand Prix this weekend. The Italian is under pressure to perform as his contract comes up for renewal this month and Renault is keeping tight-lipped over its plans.

"I really lost out in the incident at the first corner," Fisichella said about his Turkish weekend. "I could easily have scored points, and that makes it all the more frustrating to finish in 9th position. But you have to put that behind you and look forward. There are still five races to go, and each one will be important for the team and myself. We are totally focused on the Italian Grand Prix this weekend, which will be a very special race for me.""We have been working hard to ensure the car can be competitive," he added. "Our test last week was spent preparing for the race, even though bad weather on Thursday restricted our running. Like the other teams, we have a specific, new aerodynamic package for this race, which is adapted to the specific demands of the circuit. We know that our engine is strong too, but even though we have tested here recently, it will still be important to make good use of practice to fine-tune the car, and find the right compromise for qualifying and the race."
