News round up of Parthiva, Karthikeyan & Armaan

A mix bag of news we have, we start with a Q & A with F2 driver Parthiva Sureshwaren. He recently confirmed that he will be driving in the FIA Formula Two Championship. This is third season in F2 and he is already looking forward to the new season with his sponsor Lycamobile. His aim in 2012 season is to finish regularly in points and score some podium finishes. He's also looking forward to driving at the Hungaroring in Budapest. Click here to read the full interview with official F2 website.

Good news for Narain Karthikeyan & the HRT F1 team as Autosport (article) revealed that they had passed all the mandatory crash tests and have a homologated car to test and race now. Narain tweeted, "We have a car! Looks like a sure step forward from last year." The team now hopes to make it to the last test starting on Thursday with their new car.

On Friday, Armaan Ebrahim left for US to join his team Fan Force United starting a new season in Indy Lights, first Indian to make it there. He is subjected to meet fans during the team kickoff party on March 2 at the team race shop in Indy. Before leaving for US, he shared his thoughts on his new journey, click here to read what he said.

I think that's a good move by Parthiva to stay in F2 for the third season. He has got two years experience under his belt and now he can build up on that to improve his performance and as he said score points regularly and some podiums. As for Karthikeyan and HRT, it's surely a step forward if they make it to Barcelona with their new car and I hope they do. Finally, for Armaan it's a brand new world of motorsport and for many of the fans here as well as Indy is not the most viewed here. It's a new challenge for Armaan and the fact that he was chosen on the base of his performances is in itself says a lot. He will get a new exposure which will help his career to move to greater heights.
