You've been away for as long as Schumacher... when the pair of you raced he was a far better driver. Look at Schumacher's struggles.

You will be in a dog of a car that I think will be on the cusp of a DNQ at every race...

The signs aren't good Narain.

the timing isnt good at all, no matter how well he drives, the car will be rubbish and no one will notice him, the only thing he is going to achieve with this "comeback" is a reduced bank account. . . .

the team is a joke! till they are actually able to design and build their own car they will always be rooted to the back of the grid, if they do show up in bahrain with an updated version of their 2010 car, the 107% rule will be their toughest opponent. they are feeding on scraps and shouldnt be in f1, not whilst teams like capable teams like prodrive and lola are forced to sit out! waste of space

It might be the right time, Narain, but it's definitely the wrong team. In fact, the only person that should see this as right is Kolles, for all the money he's taking off of you for the privilige of driving one of his 4-wheeled skips.

Nobody will notice if he's doing well or not, he'll only fight with his team mate for not being last, and that if the team makes it to the grid, which isn't very clear.

The car is a dog is true. But like Narain said, you never know whats going to happen in the world of F1.

He still might.. but we certainly do not.

What if TATA buy out the team to mark the return of Jaguar. Isnt the timing for Narain right the? on the eve of Indian GP, TATA buys HRT in front of millions of Indian viewers!

Also in regards to the first post about the comparison with Shumacher, Schumi had given up all forms of competetive racing altogether, Narain competed in A1 GP, Lemans, Superleague Formula and Nascar and was actively racing.

Lets wait and watch. I think its great news for Indians and for the sport, in 2005 there was a ten-fold hike in F1 viewer-ship in India due to Narain.

Plus the Indian Govt awarded him the highest civilian award for his achievements. I think this is good fr sport and not just Kolles, Narain or India

Yes, all fine and dandy, but still a 60 year old, balding and whith a respectable beer gut Schumacher that hasn't sit in a car in over 20 years would drive the wheels off of Karthi on his best day.

Uhm. I know as much as you all know if the time is right or no.

Lets wait for the season to start and decide.

Btw I love the look in his eye in the snapshot above!!

Can't wait to hear who his teammate is and have him walk over him!
