Daniel Ricciardo says he’s unfazed about making way for Narain Karthikeyan at the Indian GP as it was always part of the deal.

Signed as a Toro Rosso test and reserve driver for this season, Ricciardo was handed his F1 debut at the British GP after Red Bull agreed a deal with HRT.

However, part of the deal was for the Australian to step aside at the Indian GP, allowing Karthikeyan to return to the race-seat that was initially his.

“I am not sure 100 percent sure what’s happening but at least I will be driving in the practice session and I am always excited when on F1 track,” Ricciardo told PTI.

“When it’s part of the deal and agreement, you follow it.

“I still have lot of races left in the season and you look forward to many more things when you do not race.

“You look for support of the fans. It’s always exciting to go to new venue and see the track.”
