Formula Two – Indian drivers struggle at Silverstone testing

11th placed Armaan Ebrahim was still the best Indian driver on view at Silverstone

The Indian contingent had a disappointing testing at the Silverstone earlier this week. The Indian drivers Armaan, Parthiva and Ajith finished at 11, 17 and 20th respectively ahead of the season opener this weekend.

Armaan Ebrahim who finished 5th at Snetterton ended 11th in the combined standings at Silverstone and still remained the best Indian driver by a distance. Parthiva gave a slightly improved performance at Silverstone as his 17th place finish was fractionally better than his 20th place finish at Snetterton. Ajith though showed his rustiness as he finished last at 20th. Ajith has not been driving for a long time now, so his lack of practice needs to be taken into account.

No such excuses for both Armaan and Parthiva though as they are both professional racers. With the season opener at Silverstone this weekend all the three drivers would want to put up a decent show. I hope that we see at least one top 10 finish this weekend.
