Narain Karthikeyan was the leading HRT in Greater Noida on Sunday, by virtue of Pedro de la Rosa’s retirement, but the Indian lost significant time due to car damage.
As Michael Schumacher and Jean-Éric Vergne made contact at the first corner, the local hero was also caught up in early-race drama.
“I got off to a good start but had an incident on the first corner and lost a chunk of my front wing,” Karthikeyan explained. “The damage wasn’t too severe but we had problems with the balance of the car from then on.
“The greatest problem was the overheating of the brakes. They warned me on the radio that I had to look after them because we had to make it to the end - and we did that. Today we got the most out of what we had and I’m happy to have finished my home race.”
Team-mate de la Rosa, who suffered a rearward accident at Turn 4 midway through the 60-lap race, explained that his brake failure had come without any warning at all.
