Ferrari line up Fisichella move

Giancarlo Fisichella, the man who stood the Formula One world on its ear at Spa over the weekend by taking pole position for Force India and then finishing a fighting second in the wheeltracks of winner Kimi Raikkonen, will learn within the next couple of days whether he will partner the Finn in the Ferrari team next week.

The famed Italian team are unlikely to use Luca Badoer on their home track after another feeble performance in finishing last in Belgium, but they also want to wait for the result of a medical examination on the injured Felipe Massa.

The Brazilian is currently in Miami, undergoing tests, one of which he told his engineer Rob Smedley last Saturday, “was 100pc better than they expected.”

Domenicali has ruled out reports of Renault's Fernando Alonso — long believed to be a Ferrari driver from 2010 — making an early switch.
