Giancarlo Fisichella says he has no regrets whatsoever about having moved to Ferrari, despite failing to match the performance of his former team Force India in qualifying at Monza.
Fisichella secured pole position and fought for victory in the previous race at Spa with the Force India car, before he moved to Ferrari for the rest of the season.
The Italian Grand Prix weekend has not been easy for Fisichella, however, and the Roman qualified down in 14th after having crashed in the morning. Force India drivers Adrian Sutil and Tonio Liuzzi were second and seventh.
"I am happy for them. I am happy even, because I did a fantastic job over there," said Fisichella. "I did a fantastic development of the car and this is the result. I am happy because in the last race I was second in the race, I did a pole position which was a great result.
"But this one - the chance to be a Ferrari driver was the dream of my life and even if they can win the next five races, I would make the same decision. I want to be a Ferrari driver for the rest of the season. I am happy about my choice and I am sure I can do a good job."
Fisichella admitted his crash during the final practice session had hit his chances of a better qualifying.
"A lot. After many years in Formula 1, I have a lot of experience and I know how important FP3 is," he added. "It is really important, especially for my team. It was important to do as many laps as possible to have a better feeling with the car, to get the right set-up for the qualifying session, to work on the soft tire and it was quick frustrating.
"I was really sad, really disappointed before the qualifying session. I was not comfortable and confident, but considering all of this, for this it is quite a good result.
"The team has been very happy considering what happened, and considering my start position for tomorrow. So I thank all my mechanics, who did a fantastic job to rebuild the car just in time for the qualifying session after the crash."
The Italian said he is still adapting to his new car, especially as it has KERS, something that Force India did not use all season.
"KERS is not easy, but it is not difficult," he added. "It is a switch, which gives you some good acceleration for Turn Two, and at the exit of Lesmo Two and the last corner. You need to switch it on, you need to switch it off and you need to switch some other button up and down, on and off.
"I am much more busy now compared to where I was in Force India, where we didn't even have front flap adjustment. I need to work quite well with my engineer, who is doing a fantastic job. On the radio he is talking a lot and he has helped me in the right direction, so for sure I just need to improve. Everything is going well and tomorrow it will be a much better day for me, and in the race I have a good chance to do well.
