It was in the offing for a long time. The whole country believed that if there was one Indian who could make it to the high profile glamorous world of F1, it had to be Narain Karthikeyan, dubbed as the fastest Indian in the world. But with opportunities to test drive for various F1 cars over the years still not translating into him being the First Indian on the F1 circuit, even the most ardent of his fans had given up hopes.
However with news coming today of narain having agreed in principle, to race for the Jordan F1 team in the 2005 season, Narain has seen his dream of becoming India's first F1 driver become a reality. And the whole lot of F1 fans in India are now looking up at their icon to take on the likes of world champion Michael Schumacher and Barrichello and Button in his new Jordan.
So what if we couldn't have an F1 circuit in India, we now have an Indian in the F1 circuit.
