Hispania confirms Karthikeyan will drive for Indian GP

Sept.17 – The Hispania Racing Team confirmed that Indian speedy Narain Karthikeyan will be drive for his home race. And he will also come-back to race seat Friday Free practice at Singapore GP.

“Of course it’s a great feeling to be driving on a grand prix weekend once again, and on the subject of my home Grand Prix of India, the team had assured me that I’d be driving when I stepped out of my seat after the European GP,” said Karthikeyan.

His race seat lost ahead of Silverstone GP for some financial supporting problem after Red Bull third driver Daniel Ricciardo joins with HRT, but it was always understood that he would get another chance at India’s inaugural F1 on 30 October. This was highlighted when Karthikeyan concluded backing contract for racing at the event.

HRT Team boss Colin Kolles said the Singapore outing was to guarantee Karthikeyan was not too rusty when he reclaimed his race seat for India.

“It is great to have Narain back in the car as it will give him critical seat time before he drives at the Indian GP,” Kolles said. He is the best driver to come out of the region and is undoubtedly extremely talented as he has proved through his progress this season.”
