F1 & Ferrari / Re: Spa 2009

As part of the celebrations of Fisico's 45th birthday, WTF1 has an article about his Spa 2009 weekend.
Fisico Beyond Racing / Re: Che Tempo Che Fa
« Last post by Alianora La Canta on January 15, 2018, 04:08:22 PM »
It looks like yesterday's episode was completely and utterly dominated by an interview with Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, and Steven Spielberg failing to attend (they were supposed to be talking about a new film about the Washington Post; of the two who arrived, Meryl seems to have been the best-received, partly because she was able to express her thoughts in Italian).

There was some controversy, because the episode didn't finish until quarter-past-midnight (it seems that most episodes of it are somewhat shorter).

Also, Alex Zanardi appears to have been in the episode also, talking about his approach to things. Everyone who commented on it on Twitter appears to have been pleased with what he said, with at least one person saying it gave hope for the future of Italy.

And still I cannot find a word about Fisico's contribution to the program...
Fisico Beyond Racing / Tanti auguri, Fisico!

I wasn't able to get onto the forum yesterday, so...

Tanti auguri, Fisico!

(Giancarlo had his 45th birthday yesterday, though he's still getting birthday messages today, mostly from people who know that the 14th is his "paperwork" birthday and he was actually born on the 15th, making today the time he really turns 45).

Thanks for the tip! Unfortunately I can't see the program from Rai Uno page here because it is limited to broadcast outside Italy. The program Che Tempo Che Fa lasts 3,5 hours, it is not easy to say when it is time when Fisico is there and how long his interview lasts. I wait too a short clip when it has been his turn at the show and watch it afterward because 3,5 hours waiting is very long. In my tele is also subtitling in Italian, it helps a lot when I am watching programs directly from Rai Uno. :)
Fisico Beyond Racing / Che Tempo Che Fa

Fisico is going to be on a talk show called Che Tempo Che Fa tomorrow. This is, of course, his birthday. Hopefully we will get some good news from the show - even if it possible that it has no connection to his motorsport plans.

Turns out that there are bigger issues here, than simply a BoP...

It started with the BMW rumour before Christmas. Then this story appeared with Dave Sims indicating Fisico's return to Risi is unlikely and that there has been silence between Risi and Fisico. This is completely uncharacteristic of Fisico, to not be talking to a team where he's worked for four years.

I'd hoped that this was some sort of misunderstanding on the journalist's part. However, Fisico has also been almost silent on social media (he's only posted one message since New Year - a birthday wish to his friend Michael Schumacher and neither BMW nor any manufacturer with whom Fisico could plausibly have negotiated has said anything about him joining them. Risi, last I checked, had not committed to a part-season line-up for the #62 car (that car will only do the four rounds of the North America Endurance Championship plus 1-2 other races), so it's even possible that Fisico could return/remain with Risi.

If he stays at Ferrari.

I just couldn't have imagined, back in 2009 when Giancarlo chose his childhood dream over staying at a potentially race-winning Force India, that the last sentence could ever contain an "if".

The initial BoP has been released, with no changes in GTLM for Fisico to worry about.

Interestingly, Fisico posted the second-best average lap time in IMSA GTLM of 2017, beaten only by his team-mate Toni Vilander. Let's hope for more of the same in 2018 :)

BMW has announced its drivers for next year, and Fisico is not among them.

Thankfully this is one rumour that has turned out to have no foundation in fact. Looks like we can look forward to seeing Fisico in his beloved Ferraris for the forseeable future :)

I would also be interested in any ideas anyone has for the front of the card :)
