This is great news Karun Chandok will be racing in Formula 1 this season (2010) with the HRT F1 team. The rumors that he might join Force India proved wrong. He will be the second Indian driver to drive in F1. Narain Karthikeyan was the first to drive in F1. He gave a modest performance with Jordan in 2007.
Its very heartening to see India taking good strides in a game other that Cricket. Wishing Karun all the very best and hope he will make Indian flag fly high. And Kudos to Mr Vijay Mallya for popularizing Formula 1 in India.
End of last season when I heard that Kimi Raikkonen will not be racing in F1 next season, I thought I’ll have no more motivation to watch F1 the next season.
Well !! well !! but now, with 3 new teams, McLaren and Meredes forming two different teams, Micheal Schumacher back, Force India doing better than ever and now with Karun in F1 I’m dying to see 2010 season to begin. Its gonna be exciting.
