Giancarlo Fisichella admits he would enjoy making a return to the Sauber team if it ensured he had a race seat next season.
Fisichella has been confirmed as one of Ferrari's test drivers for the coming season but the experienced Italian has not given up hope of securing a starting berth with Sauber reportedly interested in his services.
Having driven for Sauber in 2004, the 36-year-old is upbeat about a possible return.
"I would be delighted, of course, with a team to work together, which I already know and with whom I have been perfectly well," Fisichella said at the Bologna Motor Show.
"Besides, I am naturally very pleased that the team will be at the start," he added.
