Struggling F1 rookie, Narain Karthikeyan has revealed that he could opt for an F1 test seat in 2006, if he is unable to secure a race drive.

Although he added that staying with Jordan was an option, thus far this season he hasn't really gelled with the Silverstone based team and within the team there has been some frustration with his performances, even if he has seemingly had a lot of bad luck.

"We are speaking obviously to some people and this team is an option as well," he told Reuters.

"We have to see how it all comes out and what happens. I'd be happy to race somewhere and at the moment there are not many race seats.

"I have to see which is good for my career, whether to stay here or whether to get a good test driving seat somewhere else. I'm keeping all the options open, to be honest. I believe I can drive pretty well and also India is a very marketable place.

"The objective is to be in Formula One for a number of years. I have gained experience this year and hopefully can use it better next year."
