Karun Chandhok who is one among the talented Indian driver’s said that he might have to continue as a test driver for any of the teams in the upcoming season in the Formula One arena.

Karun said that, “I am mentally preparing myself to continue as a test driver for another season. As of now, most of the teams have announced their list of drivers for the 2012 season. There are only two slots up for grabs — one with the Williams and other with the Hispania Racing Team, So situation is a bit difficult but I am ready to work hard,”.

When he was asked about the economics and other parameters that are taken into consideration when F1 teams zeroed in on their list of drivers, the Ace Indian Driver said that, “Now the F1 teams are also looking at drivers, who can essentially bring them good sponsorship money. It’s indeed a tough situation.”

He insisted that, “It’s a concept, which is aimed at grabbing the attention of the new audience. As far as I am concerned, I am ready to lend my hand at anything that will help promote the motorsport in India,”.

Chandhok also said that, “The timing of the race also suits my availability as it will be held in the winter after the conclusion of the F1 season. The F1 still remains my primary focus but there won’t be any shortage of commitment in my participation in i1. This will certainly be a big boost for the upcoming Indian drivers,”.
