New Delhi: McLaren's Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton says it is unfortunate that Narain Karthikeyan is in a slower car and a move to Sahara Force India could do wonders for him and India.

"It is unfortunate that Narain is driving a slow car. Probably, it would do wonders if he were in Force India which is a pretty good team. It would be a good stepping stone for him," said Hamilton here Wednesday when asked about the current HRT driver racing for an Indian team.

Karthikeyan's best finish this year was 15th at the Monaco Grand Prix.

"I am a Brit driving for a British team in a British car and it has done wonders for us so I hope it would be the same for him and India."

However, Force India co-owner and team principal Vijay Mallya has always been reluctant about having an Indian driver in his team.
