Oct.26 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Vicky Chandhok is worried F1 may soon be without an Indian driver.

Chandhok, the Indian motor sport federation’s president, has already seen his son Karun’s F1 career end due to a lack of sponsorship.

And now it is suggested F1’s other Indian driver, Narain Karthikeyan, may lose his HRT seat at the end of the season.

“After Narain and Karun, I really can’t see an Indian driver for the next, I would say, eight to 10 years,” Chandhok snr told CNN.

“Formula one has become all about money,” he said. “It never was earlier, you could find a slot with just talent.

“The formula one teams have decided that even if you’ve got talent, let’s have your chequebook as well — bring in five, 10, 20 million dollars and (then) let’s give you the seat,” he added.
