I loved the mag­a­zine’s posters

Sportstar - - 40 SUPERSTARS -

First In­dian F1 driver Ien­vi­ron­ment! grew up in Coim­bat­ore and hence in a mo­tor­sports

So, nat­u­rally, I had to race!!! As you know my father (G. R. Karthikeyan) used to rally and so I had some in­ter­est, but never enough to want­ing me to com­pete in it, a com­pletely dif­fer­ent prin­ci­ple to rac­ing.

It’s al­ways nice to be fea­tured in an iconic sports mag­a­zine as Sport­star. I loved those posters of Ayr­ton Senna, Boris Becker and St­effi Graf. I was on it in 2005 as well when I made to the For­mula One! It was a sur­real feel­ing.

My gen­er­a­tion grew up read­ing Sport­star as it cov­ered a vast spec­trum of sports. It was ev­ery­body’s love and for me as well.
