Why Fisichella isn't giving up on a race seat yet

Giancarlo Fisichella may be listed as Ferrari's reserve driver in 2010, but the Italian isn't ready to let go of racing just yet and could still land a drive this year

We're well into January and still there are empty seats on the 2010 grid. Many drivers have been linked with them, but one obvious candidate has maintained a low profile in the rumour mill.

There is one good reason why Giancarlo Fisichella hasn't been the name on everyone's lips - he already has a multi-year contract as Ferrari's third driver. But that doesn't mean that he and his manager Enrico Zanarini have not been actively searching for a race drive elsewhere.
