Fisichella stuns with Force India pole


Giancarlo Fisichella gave Force India an astonishing first pole position while Formula One championship leader Jenson Button qualified only 14th for the Belgian Grand Prix on Saturday.
The Force India team have yet to score a point in 29 races while the 36-year-old Roman last started on pole with Renault in Malaysia in 2006.

"It's amazing. It's fantastic. I'm so happy about that...I didn't expect that result," said the Italian, who side-stepped a suggestion that his car might be fuelled lighter than those behind him.
"This is one of my favourite circuits... But I didn't expect to be on pole. We made a big step forward from the last race," he added of his fourth career pole.
