Nov.21 - Giancarlo Fisichella has joined his 2008 teammate Adrian Sutil in insisting his future on the formula one grid with Force India in 2009 is secure.

After boss Vijay Mallya vowed to take new partner McLaren-Mercedes' advice on all matters, the British team's main test driver Pedro de la Rosa this week tested the Force India car at Barcelona.

It sparked intense speculation that, notwithstanding Mallya's previous suggestions that Sutil and Fisichella will race on next year, their seats may in fact be in doubt.

"I am not anxious," the 35-year-old Roman Fisichella, who like Sutil also tested at Barcelona this week, is quoted as saying by Italy's La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I do not think that there will be problems for me.

"I have a signed contract and Vijay Mallya announced that the drivers for 2009 will be Adrian Sutil and myself," he added.
