The first race of the Formula one season begins this weekend and it will also mark the debut of the Indian racer Karun Chandhok. Karun was signed up by Hispania Racing Team (HRT) as their second driver for this season and he became the second Indian to race in Formula one. This year is also special for the return of former F1 champion Michael Schumacher at the age of 42 to competitive racing after his retirement in 2006.
I am really excited for Karun as this will be big occasion for him and he will know that there will be lots of F1 fans like me who will be cheering for him this weekend. I hope that Karun does put up a decent show in his first year and it will be amazing if he can finish up with few points next to his name. He wasn’t on the track today during the free practice sessions for HRT but I am sure that he will be there on the track tomorrow during the practice session before the actual qualifying.
I wish him all success this season and I hope he does himself and his country proud.
