Karun Chandhok is hoping for a reasonable amount of laps this weekend as the 2010 season continues in Australia. The Indian driver was a presented with the toughest possible start in Bahrain but hopes to finish the race in Melbourne.
Although technical problems kept F1's second ever Indian driver out of the action until qualifying at Sakhir, Chandhok still qualified within 1.7 seconds of team-mate Bruno Senna before retiring from the Bahrain Grand Prix after hitting a bump, spinning and contacting with the Armco barriers on Lap 2.
"I am really looking forward to my second F1 race this weekend," 26-year-old Chandhok commented. "I have never driven in Melbourne but I am a very quick learner; I was able to work on a team's simulator before the Grand Prix, so that will help my familiarisation a little bit!
"Our next step with the team's engineers is to make the car reliable for the race. The secret of good racing preparation is to complete as many laps as possible on Friday to see where we are with the car. Finishing the race would be a fantastic achievement we will strive for."
