pay attention to this kid, is as always been one of 2-3 best drivers where ever he raced, has won the F3000 Uk championship, and last year he won the WSR, incluiding victories in tracks such as Monaco an Spa. its a shame people in his country dont even know him and they dont even care about motorsport only football, and even withou any kind os support from portugal he still manages do qualify on the first row and win is first race in the series. pay attention to him. :)

I wish they'd do something about the complete lack of overtakes. It's like F1 2007 and 2008 in miniture form, whereas those GP2/05s were amazing.

Chandhok Q & A src:TOI

Mumbai: Karun Chandhok had aimed to be in the top five of the GP2 when it started. Now after his win at Hockenheim last Sunday after a third place at Silverstone, he’s raised the bar. With eight races to go Karun finds himself in a tussle for the No. 3 overall spot. He says it was great to receive a congratulatory message from Sachin Tendulkar after the win. Excerpts from an interview.

Did you believe you could win?
Yes, I believed that a race win was within reach. We had some issues in qualifying but once we got to the races, the pace was very strong and as I knew from Silverstone two weeks ago, where I came from 10th to 3rd, my race pace was better than others.
Was it scary with Zuber sniping at your tails and how did you ward him off?
I’ve been fortunate to have led and won a lot of races in my career so it wasn’t scary. It was certainly a lot of pressure because he was never more than a second away but at the same time, I kept some speed in reserve in case I needed it later on in the race. The main thing was that I couldn’t afford any lapse in concentration with the gap being so close.

When one is at the wheel, how much does one knows about the man behind?
My engineer, Richard Selwin, did a great job of keeping me constantly updated with information. He kept telling me how close or far Zuber was and was giving me info about the sector times which was very useful.
What did you keep telling yourself when you had so many laps to keep your man behind?
I don’t really talk to myself but it was just a question of absolute intense concentration for the entire race. Every inch of every corner had to be right and at 300 kph, that’s never easy.

That manoeuvre when you surged ahead of Di Grassi, can you take us through it?
I knew I was quicker than Di Grassi so it was a question of waiting for the right time. The opportunity came earlier than I thought, when he made a mistake coming out of turn 2. I got past him going down to the hairpin but he came back at me. I then planned my move to slice up the inside on the exit and we were very close to banging wheels but it worked out in the end.

And how did good times begin?
Richard was the first to congratulate me on the team radio, then my teammate Bruno Senna and the team principal, Paul Jackson, were the first people I met. It was a great result for the team because Bruno also was on the podium. I had people from all over the F1 paddock congratulating my dad and me — Bernie Ecclestone, Flavio Briatore, Heikki Kovalainen, Rubens Barrichello, Christian Horner (boss of Red Bull Racing), Nick Fry (boss of Honda F1), Vijay Mallya. Sachin Tendulkar also sent me a message from Sri Lanka which was very nice of him.
