Fisichella completes first day of testing with Force India

Jerez, (Spain) Jan 16 (UNI) Giancarlo Fisichella completed his first official day of testing with the Force India Formula One Team at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit, here today.

''Not too bad today. The circuit was damp in the morning, but by midday it was getting better,'' Fisichella said.

''We did most of the programme, but unfortunately we had some minor mechanical issues. At the end with the new tyres there was a possibility to have a faster time,'' he added.

''But unfortunately there was traffic and then I made a mistake, but it's quite encouraging. I think we can improve quite a lot as we are going in the right direction.'' The 35-year-old Italian, who completed 76 laps today, continued the team's programme of set-up work and integrating the 2008 standard electronic control unit.

Although the track was damp in the morning, the team was able to make up for yesterday's limited running and complete the greater part of its programme.

Adrian Sutil will take over for the third and final day of the test tomorrow.
