Karun Chandhok has refuted claims that his Hispania drive may be in jeopardy and confirms that he and the Murcia-based squad remain on good terms. The Indian made his debut at the start of the season and is now looking to stay on the grid next year.
With the usual Formula 1 rumours having surrounded the HRT outfit, not least after car constructor Dallara ended its association with the team at the end of last month, Chandhok has confirmed that the José Ramón Carabante-owned outfit remains in healthy shape.
"There is so much speculation and I don't know if it's being started by other drivers who are trying to get in or whatever," he told Reuters. "Three weeks ago, team-mate Bruno (Senna) was the one - all over the internet it was, 'Bruno's out and so and so is coming in with money' - and this week it seems to be my turn.
"As far as I know, I am in Valencia, I am in the car and I am in for the rest of the season.
"The first thing is to see what the possibility is at HRT because they do have a good plan in place for the future; it's not been made public yet - because there are still a few things to be worked out from their side - but, from what José Ramón told us in Montreal, the 2011 programme looks very interesting for them.
"It's certainly something that you have to think about very seriously."
Karun also admits that gossip is circulating linking himself with Force India but points out that the connection is to be expected. "It's a logical link people would make for me and Force India," the Chennai-born driver man began to conclude. "I think I've proved to be a respectable Formula 1 driver and they are obviously now a very respectable midfield Formula 1 team."
