Karthikeyan's parents await Melbourne race

Coimbatore:

India's Narain Karthikeyan may be a long way from home earning his spurs in the rarified atmosphere of Formula 1 racing, but all of his tests for Team Jordan are keenly watched by his parents in Coimbatore. "We were waiting for this for a very long time. We were immensely pleased that he got a break into F1 but he is at the lowest part of F1 right now," said G R Karthikeyan, his father. "He's just got where he wanted to get. Now he has a long climb up and we really hope that he'll have enough space to climb," Karthikeyan said further. But Narain's mother, Sheela, worries as any mother would about the little boy who took his first steps in racing by tearing around the driveway in a go-kart. After all these years. I'm terrified. I keep praying that he's OK at the end of the race. I think he wants me at the race in Melbourne. I might go there," said Sheela. So when Melbourne comes around in early March, there are no two guesses as who will be rooting the loudest.
