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.

The formula two season began this week with the testing at the Snetterton on 6th and 7th of April. This was the first chance for the new drivers to test out their cars ahead of the season opener on the 16th at Silverstone. The Indian drivers had mixed results at the testing as Armaan Ebrahim finished in top 5 but Parthiva Sureshwaran and Ajith Kumar were seen at the bottom of the standings at 20 and 22 respectively.

This was just the beginning of the season and both Ajith and Parthiva would want to quickly adapt to their cars and would want to give better performances in the season opener next week. The season gets underway with the Free Practice on the 16th and the eventual race on the 18th of April next week. Hope to see the Indian drivers put up a very good show in the first race of the season. I will surely be following their progress throughout the season.

It seems like motorsports will be my top priority this year with lots of Indian participation in both F1 and F2.
