Fisichella & Sauber

Following confirmation of their successful acceptance into the 2010 F1 field and their tie-in with Ferrari to supply engines to the team, might mean Ferrari test driver Giancarlo Fisichella might make a return to Sauber in 2010.

The Italian veteran drove for the Swiss team in 2004 after two largely fruitless years with Jordan, and his impressive drives earned him a call-up to his most successful stint at Renault in 2005-7.

Fisichella’s Ferrari contract leaves the door open for a parallel race seat, and with Sauber’s deal to race a Ferrari engine and powertrain next year, he has logically been mentioned as a contender.

"First of all I’m happy that [Sauber] can participate in the championship and I would like to be able to collaborate with a team I know, and I got on very well with them: together with Ferrari we’ll see if that will be possible," he said at the Bologna motor show.

Having a known quantity in the re-formed Sauber team certainly wouldn’t be a bad idea, Mr Sauber?
