Pizzonia ready for first full GP2 season
10 April 2007 – Antonio Pizzonia is looking forward to see the GP2 season get underway in Bahrain this weekend. The Fisichella Motor Sport International driver completed enjoyed a few Champcar races in 2006 but has decided he wants to race in GP2 in 2007.
"Winter testing went well for us, but in testing you never know what people are doing so whatever anyone did in terms of lap times and speed doesn't really matter anymore," said Pizzonia. "It all starts this weekend. We worked hard and improved the car over winter so we have to carry what we learnt into the races, but I am sure it should be a good season."
"I'm really looking forward to racing again. Last year I only did two races so I was looking for a challenge this in which I could be competitive and fight for race wins and a championship. GP2 was the best option for me and FMS is a strong team so I'm happy I've made the right decision. There's only two circuits on the calendar that I haven't driven, and they are Bahrain and Istanbul. So I'm expecting this weekend to be hard, but hopefully we can do well. After all the testing, the whole team is ready to race now."
