Formula One: Giancarlo Fisichella, The Reborn Underdog

shaun hartleyContributor IMay 19, 2008

Giancarlo Fisichella has been a breath of fresh air to the reinvigorated Force India squad this year.

The Italian veteran has been driving the wheels off the VJM/01 this year and has put in some giant-killing performances in sub-standard machinery, putting his teammate firmly in the shadows.

The whole team seems to be making genuine progress this year, as it aims to leave the back of the grid behind and fight with teams such as Toro Rosso, Toyota and Honda.

Hopefully, Monaco may provide the team with a decent chance of troubling the points scorers for the first time.

"Fisi" has often gone well around Monaco, and his experience could pay dividends as the team try to break into the Top Eight.
