Weekend preview!

F1
Of course we all know the F1 circus heads to Malaysia this weekend. Usually we would post the championship standings but as there has only been one race so far, it seems a bit irrelevant at this stage!

Sahara Force India will be in action with the aim of scoring points, however the car struggled last time out in Australia and there will have probably been no updates to the cars (for any team) this weekend. This is due to the close proximity of the first two races of the season, both geographically and in terms of time. One thing to watch out for however, regardless of the competitiveness of the car, is the battle between the teams two drivers; Paul Di Resta and Nico Hulkenberg. Back in Australia, Nico was on top in all three practice sessions and also qualified higher - however in the race Paul won the battle as Nico had an accident on the opening lap. Clearly it's going to be a fiercely contested battle all season long!

Narain Karthikeyan will also be in action for HRT. His aims will be to get as many laps under his belt as possible, qualify under the 107% rule and beat his teammate in the race. Although considering how poor their car was in Australia you have to think that achieving these three targets are not really within his control; he just needs his machine to work for him!

Indy Lights
What some of you may not have known is that Armaan Ebrahim will be taking part in his first Indy Lights race tomorrow! The is held on the Streets of St.Petersburg, Florida, United States.

As it is his first ever race in the series, it's hard to judge exactly what his target should be however practice has initially indicated that he could be in with a chance of the race win, and just possibly, come the end of the season, be a title contender! We all hope that's the case anyhow - we wait in anticipation!

Naturally we'll bring you all the news from this weekend right here at Auto India Sports.
