Good luck to Karun Chandhok at this weekends F1 race at the Nurburgring. I hope he does well and is competitive. His races last year with HRT (Hispania) were cut short by HRT’s need to get other pay-per-drive drivers in, ie Sakon Yamamoto. At least at Team Lotus he will have a better car, and it should be a guage of his talent.
Karun has on occasion been the expert summariser for the Beeb during their red button free practice broadcasts and he comes across as being a very knowledgeable and thoroughly likeable chap, with an almost encyclopaedic knowledge of Formula 1.
