After his F1 disaster, Vincenzo raced in America but injury led to his retirement from racing sportscars. Now runs an Italian Formula 4 team, formerly known as Euronova, but now in his own name, as well as a few other Italian lower formulae teams. Vincenzo still hopes to take the team upwards to a higher level one day. He also has a team in Japanese Formula 4 and the Asian Le Mans Series (under the VS Racing banner) and now also the ITGO series. Since Sospiri has run the team, many drivers have moved onto F1 drives - including Robert Kubica, Jerome D'Ambrosio and Vitaly Petrov. Vincenzo did do an interview in 2006 for https://www.oldracingcars.com, which can be found here - https://www.oldracingcars.com
