Chandhok to test for Red Bull

Indian driver Karun Chandhok has been given a two-day test with Red Bull next week in Barcelona. Chandhok currently races in GP2 and won his first race in the series at Spa in 2007.

Chandhok is hoping to follow in the footsteps of fellow Indian racer Narain Karthikeyan who currently tests for Williams and who raced for Jordan in 2005.

With the news that India will probably be hosting a Formula One race in 2010, and with Indian businessman Vijay Mallya firstly sponsoring Toyota, and having recently taken over the Spyker team, there has been a surge of interest in F1 in India.
