The Force India team look set to confirm Giancarlo Fisichella for the 2008 season, with an announcement scheduled for this Thursday.
Force India have an open seat for the upcoming season, with German driver Adrian Sutil already confirmed at the Silverstone-based squad.
There have been several candidates for the second seat, but Fisichella, left without a drive after his exit from Renault, emerged as the favourite following a strong test at the Jerez circuit.
Force India are scheduled to announce their driver line-up on January 10th at 7pm Indian time, when Fisichella is expected to be confirmed as Sutil's teammate.
Italian Vitantonio Liuzzi is also expected to be announced as the team's third driver.
