Q&A WITH KARUN CHANDHOK
Karun Chandhok, racecar driver, on... racing
Q: Apart from doing commentary for Channel 4, what commitments do you have these days?
A: The biggest race for me is the 24 hours of Le Mans. I’m also racing in selected rounds of the World Championship and British LMP3 Cup. Q: Which were your best rivalries and which drivers do you most remember racing against?
A: I I raced with a lot of good drivers— guys like Lewis Hamilton, Nelson Piquet Jr, Bruno Senna, Hulkenberg, Grosjean, Buemi, Maldonado... Q: Any regrets that you missed out on the Indian Grand Prix during the three years it existed?
A: That was a real shame—I had a contract with Lotus to do the race and they opted to break the contract for various commercial reasons. Q: What are your predictions for this weekend’s Indy 500 and the Monaco GP?
A: Indy is so unpredictable, but Fernando winning would be such a great fairytale story! I’m going to say Sebastian to win Monaco. Q: Do you see yourself on the podium at Le Mans?
A: For Le Mans, I’m with a rookie team and a rookie team mate who’s 17 years old! A top 5 finish would be amazing for us.
