Chandhok in talks over 2011 F1 drive

Chandhok in talks over 2011 F1 drive

Karun Chandhok could be back in the GP2 series next season, although has revealed he's still chasing a F1 race-seat.

Chandhok was left without a Formula One drive after Hispania opted to put test driver Sakon Yamamoto in his race-seat at the German GP. And although the 26-year-old had hopes of returning to the cockpit before the season ended, it wasn't to be.

The Indian driver, though, has not given up on Formula One, revealing that he is talking with several teams.

"My goal for next year as I've said before is still firmly to be in Formula One and negotiations for a drive in the 2011 F1 World Championship are progressing in the right way," he said.

"So hopefully we'll have a final programme in place before the F1 world shuts for Christmas."

However, should a F1 seat fail to materialise, a return to GP2 could be on the cards with Chandhok set to take part in this weekend's test session in Abu Dhabi.
