Karun Chandhok joins ESPN F1 website as columnist

"Chandhok will review each 2011 Formula One grand prix, beginning with a round-up and recap of the Australian Grand Prix on 27 March," a press release said.
Last year, Chandhok became only the second Indian, after Narain Karthikeyan, to race in Formula One.

Before being dropped mid-way by the Spanish outfit, he finished in all but two of his 10 races. "I am delighted to be part of the ESPN team. The Formula One season this year is going to be a cracker and ESPNF1 is an ideal platform to reach out to Formula One fans across the globe. I have been very impressed with the overall content on ESPNF1 and look forward to this association," Chandhok, who failed to seal even a reserve driver's seat with any of the team for the 2011 season, said.

Tom Gleeson ESPN's vice president, digital media, ESPN International, said, "ESPN is delighted to be adding such a well regarded Formula One driver to ESPNF1's line up. Chandhok's Formula One racing experience will provide ESPNF1 users with leading insight and analysis through what is sure to be another gripping Formula One season."

Founded in 1997 as Racing-Live, ESPNF1's content includes news, live reports from grands prix and features written by some of the sport's leading names.
