Chandhok confirmed at RC for World Series.

Karun Chandhok has finally completed his deal to join RC Motorsport in this year's World Series by Renault, rejoining the squad with which he contested the final couple of rounds in 2005.

On that occasion, the promising Indian talent ran alongside countryman Narain Kartikheyan and, with the latter's graduation to Formula One this year as a goal, Chandhok is determined to follow suit based on a strong performance in the Renault-powered series. He has already created a strong initial impression, having taken a fourth place finish and consistent top ten qualifying performances in his four race outings since graduating from F3, and believes that RC will give him a good chance of featuring at the front in 2005.

"I was looking forward to doing a full year in the World Series, specially with the new Formula Renault 3.5, which looks really good," he commented, "It's fantastic to take part in a Renault championship, especially now that the company is in India."

Seventeen-year old Italian Giovanni Tedeschi will fill the second seat in the RC Motorsport line-up, and team principal Carlo Migliavaca is confident that his selection can challenge for honours.

“With Tedeschi and Chandhok, we are combining youth, talent and the interests we have in both an established motorsport country like Italy with an emerging country, like India," he said.
