New Delhi: Karun Chandhok’s dream of racing in the inaugural Indian GP has been put to rest as his team chose to continue with their regular drivers, Heikki Kovalainen and Jarno Trulli.
However, Chandhok will still get behind the wheels for the Friday’s practice session in front of his home crowd.
Tony Fernandes, Team Lotus’ boss had earlier expressed his desire to see Chandhok race in front of his home fans but left the decision with the team. The decision might have come in the wake of team’s ambition of finishing 10th in the constructor’s standing that is sure to bring increased income along with other benefits.
The inaugural Indian GP is set to take place on October 30 at Buddh International Circuit.
