Giancarlo Fisichella on Saturday said he hopes his pole position for the Belgian Grand Prix "helps" Force India amid "rumours" about the team's future.

An Italian journalist after qualifying at Spa-Francorchamps asked Fisichella, 36, to comment on paddock speculation that Silverstone based Force India is beset by financial trouble that might affect its plans for 2010.

"Well yes, there are a lot of rumours about that but for sure being on pole helps any team, so I hope it's a good help," the Roman driver said in Belgium.

Despite the speculation about a temporary fill-in drive at Ferrari, Fisichella's own future is also in doubt, with Vitantonio Liuzzi expected to step into his race seat next season.

"I didn't have any contact with other teams and I still haven't spoken to Force India about next year but today is something that is good to go ahead for the future," he said.
