Podium for Karun Chandhok in GP2 Feature raceJuly 6th, 2008 - 2:18 pm ICT by IANS
Silverstone (Britain), July 6 (IANS) India’s Karun Chandhok has struck a purple patch here with a stunning drive that saw him starting 10th on the grid and finishing third in the GP2 Feature race. The 24-year-old from Chennai, who is backed by Red Bull, Punj Lloyd, JK Tyre, Amaron, ICSA Logistics and Sidvin, added to his previous podium finish this year (at another classic track in Monaco) with a stunning performance Saturday that included a vast array of passing manoeuvres.
“That has to be my best race ever in GP2,” said Karun, the iSport International driver who is already a winner in Formula 1’s feeder formula after his victory at Spa-Francorchamps last year.
“My pace was really quick today (Saturday). Considering it’s meant to be difficult to overtake around Silverstone, I don’t think I did too bad - I passed more cars in one day than I have all season!”
Karun gained one position at the start, when Mike Conway made a poor start, forcing him to swerve around the stranded car, and then began to carve his way through the field.
He passed Toyota F1 prot
