Lots of news!

Alot of things have happened over the last few days do we're going to try sum everything up in one big article.

Firstly it has been confirmed down at HRT that Narain Karthikeyan will drive in Friday practice at the upcoming Japanese GP. This is a continuation of Narain's preparation for the Indian GP where he will race the whole weekend in place of Daniel Ricciardo.

Here is what Narain, @narainracing, had to say on twitter: "Driving FP1 at Suzuka - a great driver's circuit. 130R one of the best corners in the world- even though not as challenging now".

Elsewhere, our other F1 star, Karun Chandhok has done an interesting interview for dailypioneer.com. Lots of good info came up including that he "lost 26 kg in less than six months" to fit in the car! That shows supreme determination and dedication from him =) It's worth a read! While we're on the subject of Karun Chandhok, if you have not yet read the interview we conducted with him you can do so here.

Meanwhile down at Force India, team boss Vijay Mallya has told autsport.com here that he has set his sights on catching and overtaking Renault for P5 in the constructors championship. That will be a tough task, but it is possible for sure! Force India need to gain 4.4pts each race more than Renault to get on level terms at the end of the season (if you have not seen our recent points analysis article you can view it here).

Finally we're gonna take a trip to Sauber who have big news! Indian company Amul has announced a sponsorship deal with the Swiss team for the Indian GP. It's a shame a deal could not be done with Force India in all honesty, although we don't know if Vijay Mallya or Amul had any discussions. Nevertheless this is a good thing, the more Indian sponsors who get involved in F1 the better recognition for our nation =)
