A Force India press release this afternoon has confirmed what we long suspected, that Fisichella will take his place in the second Ferrari, alongside Kimi Räikkönen:

Following extensive discussions over the past 24 hours, the Force India Formula One Team has agreed to release Giancarlo Fisichella from his contract to join the Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro team for the remainder of the 2009 season, starting with immediate effect.

Mallya thanked Fisi for his time with the team, said he couldn't stand in the way of the Italian's potential future at Ferrari, and confirmed there was no announcement about who would replace him within the team.
