Indian F1 driver academy


Narain Karthikeyan plans to run an 'academy' to help fellow Indian countrymen succeed in racing. Williams' new 29-year-old test driver, who debuted in grands prix for Jordan last year, said he would select drivers, 'groom them and help them participate in ... events'.

Karthikeyan told the Hindustan Times newspaper: ''I don't want Indian youngsters to go through what I experienced, hunting for sponsorships and trying to find my way up. ''We're a country of a billion people and I'm sure a lot more racing talent can be found here.'' Narain said he would launch the project 'soon'.
