Fisichella 2nd fastest in Barcelona test

April 16, 2008

Fisichella 2nd fastest in Barcelona testNDTV Reports: Giancarlo Fisichella outshone the likes of Felipe Massa and Lewis Hamilton to conjure up yet another impressive timing that placed him second fastest in the second day’s testing at the Circuit de Catalunya.

Though Fisichella posted his best time on 2009 ‘slick’ Bridgestone tyre option, he proved quick on the grooved rubber too and managed a more representative time of 1m 20.7s to demonstrate the Silverstone-based outfit’s rapid progress.

This was a marked improvement from the team’s previous fastest lap round in Barcelona this year — a 1 min 22.233, was set by Giancarlo in February. The same circuit will host the fourth Grand Prix of the season on April 27 and the strong show here would boost the Vijay Mallya-owned team’s morale.

Way to go Force India… This is really good progress from the last race. I get excellent sports coverage every night at 10.30 on NDTV 24×7. It is available on DirecTV here in the US.


Podium finish in 2010. Possible?

February 8, 2008

I saw the news on NDTV 24×7 about Force India rolling out its car for this year’s 18 Formula1 races. Giancarlo Fisichella and Adrian Sutil will race the cars and Vitantoniio Liuzzi will be the test-driver.

Force India, India’s entry in the 2008 Formula One World Championship, unveiled its car and team colours for the upcoming season, which begins in Melbourne on March 16.
Calling it a “red letter day in the history of Indian motorsport”, Force India owner and liquor baron Vijay Mallya unveiled the new car and the team’s three drivers dressed in the team colours of white, tungsten, gold and red at a ceremony at the historic Gateway of India in South Mumbai.

The car, called VJM01, is expected to have its first run during the next test session of the team to be held in Barcelona from February 25 to 27.

I prefer watching NDTV 24×7 as it is India’s most respected news channel and the news coverage is ‘to the point’ unlike other news channel where every news is a breaking news.

The experience only improves as I have subscribed to DirecTv.

There are absolutely no interruptions as DirecTV delivers a digital signal 99.9% of the time. I also ordered a high-speed Internet connection with the service.

The most important benefit is that my cable & internet bills have reduced.

So what do you think? Mallya wants a podium finish in the 1st race of the 2010 F1 season, Is it possible?
