Will Narain Karthikeyan make India proud once again?

Narain Karthikeyan will participate in the opening two races of the Auto GP World Series single-seater racing for the 2013 season. He is the first Indian Formula One driver.

Formerly, Narain Karthikeyan was in F1 with the now defunct HRT team in the last two seasons. He will drive for the Zele Racing in the first of the eight-round championships starting on Saturday in Monza at Italy.

He will be getting 2012 Formula 2 Champion Luciano Bacheta as teammate at Zele Racing. The 36-year-old Karthikeyan held the last minute drive after failing to find an F1 seat in 2013. He will be doing his best with his Auto GP stint.

Karthikeyan has planned to look forward to continue his F1 career with HRT in 2013. But unfortunately, adverse circumstances in the team led to the close of the operations. He has decided to accept the invitation of team owner Michael Zele which kept him driving a high powered single-seater. Karthikeyan added that he has already worked with Zele previously and knows Michael since a long time. He has good expectation from Monza as he knows the track very well. We wish him all the best for his upcoming event in Monza at Italy.

Zele Racing was the one to make their Auto GP last year, scored 56 points holding the eighth and last position in the team. The previous name for Auto GP was Euroseries 3000 up to 2009. Zytek engines and Lola chassis powered the cars used in the championships. Coloni Motorsport has promoted the series and will be running eight rounds featuring 2 races every race weekend. Current Lotus F1 driver Romain Grosjean is among the previous champions.
