Narain Karthikeyan gave his best performance of the season 2011 when it mattered the most at the Indian Grand Prix 2011. Narain finished the race in P17.
Narain Karthikeyan was very happy and expressed his happiness to the media post race. This is what he said in an interview.
"I really enjoyed myself, it was an amazing experience. To finish 17th in my home grand prix is the best I could have wished for with the car we have and beating my team-mate and one Lotus on the way makes it all the more satisfying.
"It's a shame I faced the penalty and, perhaps, we could have had a much better race without it. But I made a good start and then suffered some damage to the front wing but afterwards I picked up a good rhythm and was able to complete a good race.
"It's an awesome feeling to have completed the first ever Indian Grand Prix and to have been competitive with our main rivals which proved a lot of points."
