This is really tough weekend – Karun Chandhok



Hispania Racing Team’s new ace Karun Chandhok has admitted he faces a hard weekend and that as far as his team is worried the season will not initiate until Barcelona in May. There have been concerns that Hispania RT will get there in Bahrain with two cars which have never been driven on a track, and Chandhok admitted it would not be easy. We haven’t even done an extract, so it’s no secret it is going to be a bloody tough weekend, he told Auto sport. I think if you look on the plus side, at least Dallara are an appreciated manufacturer and they have built cars before, so we should be in a slightly better position than if it was with someone else doing it separately.

Coming Friday is going to be very hard to get the cars to do some runs. This weekend is just about dependability and accurately getting mileage quite than performance. I believe the only thing we can do is think that over the first four weekends there is not anything to gain. You can only lose by doing something unintelligent. I think the first four weekends are just about being reputable, being credible, and trying to just establish ourselves as mature drivers who are ready to be in F1.”

At present has also been commentary about Chandhok lack of skill, with accusations he only got the drive because of the money his relationship with the team would carry. His only important experience has come in three unimposing seasons in GP2. We are two rookies here, so we need as much mileage as likely. Every lap we do is going to be important to study. We had profusion of options on the table, but really I felt ready to do F1, he added. We had a bit of a rubbish season in GP2 last year but that been down to condition more than anything else. I felt myself; for myself, I was ready to do F1.

Together my dad and I were obvious in our minds that if we had to make the break, then this year was our best opportunity because there were new seats vacant. Once you got past this year then the system reverts to normal and all goes back to its place again. You don’t know if those drivers will roll on to 2011, so this year accessible a prime chance and here we are. And what does he believe of complaints HRT should not even be permissible on the grid? I have stopped reading the media as much as likely, but there have been a lot of comments that have come lately. In all honesty, I can be grateful for these concerns to some extent because if I was in their situation then I would be worried as well.

At the end of the day, the more cars there are on the grid and the more self-governing teams there are I don’t think it is a bad thing.
