A perfect fit for slow Di Resta...

An oxidated Hulk trashed the Scot, and be sure Bianchi would just jubilate Paul in the first half of the season.

Protect the mediocrity...

Let me bring in some perspective here and stop the unfair bashing!

Narain has won in every single seater racing championship hes raced in except F1, he set the pole position time at MacauGP, won korea f3 superprix, won in British F3 in convincing fashion against the likes of Button, at times in 2005 beat his teamamte in quali by 2 SECONDS! Beat PDR last yr in singpaore quali by 1 second, and more or less matched him for the 2nd half of the season despite missing FP1 and FP2 being eventually wet.

He might not be as good as the likes of DiResta etc... but he is not in the same league as Yamamato. I'd say he is as good as ppl like Sato.

On the commercial side, an Indian driver racing for an Indian would be a HUGE boost for Indian motorracing and international motorsports as a result and there would be huge growth for motorsports in a country of more than a billion people, that would create a monumental shift for the sport.

In this context, hiring NK on whose speed people like Emers

contd from previous comment ... hiring NK on whose speed people like Emerson Fittipaldi, John Watson, Peter Windsor, Jackie Stewart etc.. have placed their confidence and who also brings the added commercial opportunity will not be an entirely bad decision.

I understand that there are only three worthy candidates.

1. Adrian Sutil
2. Kamui Kobayashi
3. Jules Bianchi

If Force India F1 allows any other driver to get the second seat, they're not looking at talent but at his sponsorship backing

What do we say, let Force India put Narain and Bianchi in the same car at barcelona and have them put up the fastest time. May the Best Pilot win?

News just in! If I raise enough money in sponsors I will get a F1 drive. I understand on a commercial from because of Millaya's money trouble. But this is a joke
