Bernie would like to see an Indian driver

Bernie Ecclestone would like to see an Indian driver in a F1 car in the near future. In an intechandhok_gp2_sparview with HT he named Chandhok as a possible F1 entrant. Bernie thinks that an Indian driver will help in the build-up for the proposed 2011 race in India.

“I was hoping Vijay (Mallya) would give Karun (Chandhok) a chance,” Ecclestone told HT. “And I’m a little disappointed that he has put the Italian guy in… Whether he has to do this by contract I don’t know, but I would’ve liked to see Karun in the car for rest of the season.”

“We need to get Karun in the Formula 1 car quickly,” he said. “And he has got the talent and the ability, so it’s a case of somebody just getting on and doing it now.”

The father of Karun Chandhok is a friend of Bernie and was also in contention for FIA presidential post.
