Apr.24 (GMM) A Spanish racer has slammed Giancarlo Fisichella's GP2 team for dumping him just days ahead of the season opener of the 2008 Main Series.
Andy Soucek, 22, has been testing for Fisichella Motor Sport in the pre-season, and he told motorline.cc that he had signed a contract to race this year and even organised his trip to Barcelona.But when FMS's 2008 car was unveiled in Force India colours, the team - a joint venture of Fisichella and Colini - said Roldan Rodriguez, not Soucek, will be racing alongside Adrian Valles this season.It is suggested that Fisichella plumped for Rodriguez because he came awash with personal sponsorship."I am very upset and angry," Soucek said. "I have a valid and watertight contract with Fisichella Motor Sport."He explained that his goal of reaching F1 in the near future now seems shattered, as his chances of finding an alternate full time cockpit are "zero".Fisichella Motor Sport International said in a statement: "FMSI thanks Andy Soucek for his precious contribution to the team during pre-championship testing."
