Narain looking forward to Spanish GP

London: Narain Karthikeyan said he was looking forward to the next Formula One race — the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona — after coming up with the fastest lap for his team Jordan during the testings at Silverstone, England.

Karhikeyan took 1 minute 22.75 seconds to emerge the fastest among the Jordan drivers on the final day of the two-day testing on Thursday to prepare himself for the May 8 race. In fact, the Indian ace was second fastest among the drivers who took part in the testing. He finished 0.583 second behind William's Nico Rosberg who topped the time sheet at Silverstone.

"I am quite happy with the progress we are making and can not wait to drive at the Circuit de Cantalunya, the first track I know so far this season," Karthikeyan said.

The Indian's Portuguese teammate Tiago Monteiro came up with a timing of 1:23.39 while test driver for Jordan Nicky Pastorelli clocked 1:27.27. The Jordan drivers' programme focussed on conducting tyre testing for Bridgestone and chassis set up work in preparation for the Spanish Grand Prix and forthcoming races.

Karthikeyan, who did not take part in the first testing on Wednesday, said, "these two days at Silverstone were constructive for the team. The weather was not too bad and we managed to do many laps, testing different types of tyres and a new gearbox," Karthikeyan said. — PTI
