Sure here, dunno how your French is but it basically says that Fisi said during the F10 launch this week that he's aiming to do the Le Mans Series this year with a 430.

He might be in the Advanced Engineering car with Alesi, on the boards there's a bit of speculation that he might do Le Mans too, dream line-up of Salo-Fisichella-Alesi :cool:

Not yet. I suspect it will only be announced once Renault have decided on their second driver.

I expect Grosjean to end up in Superleague / Formula Nippon or possibly IndyCar.

Bourdais is likely to stay in Superleague, since he doesn't seem to interested in a US return.

Nakajima will be with Stefan providing they get it going. If it doesn't work, he's off to Japan.
