Boss says Fisichella staying with Force India

5:55 am on 2 September 2009

The Italian driver Giancarlo Fisichella will drive for Force India in Italy next week, with team boss Vijay Mallya rejecting speculation he would move to Ferrari for the champions' home circuit at Monza.

Fisichella finished second behind Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari at the Belgian Grand Prix last weekend to record the team's first points in 30 starts.

The Italian has been strongly linked with a move to Ferrari, who are set to decide whether Luca Badoer will continue as a stand-in for injured Brazilian Felipe Massa.
