I'm mentally preparing myself to continue as a test driver in Formula I: Chandok

“I am mentally preparing myself to continue as a test driver for another season,” Chandhok, who is one of premier faces of the upcoming i1 Super Car Series, told the mediapersons at the launch here on Monday night.

“As of now, most of the teams have announced their list of drivers for the 2012 season. There are only two slots up for grabs -- one with the Williams and other with the HRT (Hispania Racing Team). So situation is a bit difficult but I am ready to work hard.”

Asked about the economics and parameters that are taken into account when F1 teams zeroed in on their list of drivers, Chandhok said: “Now the F1 teams are also looking at drivers who can essentially bring them good sponsorship money. It’s indeed a tough situation.”

The Chennai lad also said that he opted to participate in the i1 series in order to promote motor sport in India.
