Force India

Damn, I don't give a damn about this Force India team. A team that is named so, but without an Indian driver for it!!. I don't see any reason why Mallya decided not to have Narain race for him. Some internal wrangling perhaps. Even his manager, Mark Perkins said - "He is the best available racer in the country and Mallya helped him when Narain began his career. But I don't know why he is not considering his countryman now". Its kinda sad to see one Indian with so much of a passion for the sport being sidelined by his own country-man. Reportedly Narain even said that he didn't mind not racing for Force India but felt bad that he was not even given a chance of a test ride!!!. This at a time when Ralf was given a chance. Now you know where I place Ralf when it comes to F1 driving!!.

But there has been a change in the way another team is thinking. It looks like there will be a Super Aguri with another Indian consortium for a possible investment. The Indian consortium is led by the Spice Group, which is currently promoting Indian A1 team. This team specifically only wants Narain to race for them. Well, looks like somebody has a little faith on the small guy from down south after all!!. So good luck to that and lets hope that the "fastest Indian" gets a chance to prove himself in F1.

And Mallya, for all I care, can change his tag of "Force India" to "Force India - Indian Missing". Wait a minute, perhaps he can ask ShahRukh Khan to drive for him!!.


  1. True... but looks like Mallya looked at the business part of it.

  2. Yeah WTF was Mallya thinking when he hired Fisichella instead of Narayen Karthikayen??!!
