Fisichella in the wars

The second International Superstars Series race, in round seven at Vallelunga, turned into a real scrap.
07/10/2012

The close-quarters fight, with nudges and clashes galore, kicked off on lap one and Giancarlo Fisichella, in one of the two Maserati Quattroporte Evos from the private Swiss Team, came off worst.

Fisichella lined up in top spot but crossed the finish line only eighth. He was also slapped with a 25” penalty, which relegated him to eleventh, for running into Camilo Zurcher’s Romeo Ferraris Mercedes C63 AMG just after the start. The incident came not long after the Mercedes driver had done everything to provoke a reaction from Swiss Team’s ex-F1 man.

Just behind Fisichella came the Swiss squad’s other driver, the relatively inexperienced Mauro Cesari. Cesari closed out in twelfth spot after a couple of early mistakes and then a fighting comeback from fifteenth.
