Narain Karthikeyan has said his prime target was to carry on with his decent show at Germany last week and finish the race at the Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday. The Jordan driver, who arrived at the Hungaroring, said his team aimed to keep up with their rivals who have shown improvement in their performance in recent weeks. "My goal is to fight and finish the race. Many of our competitors have worked a lot on their cars, including Minardi, which is a worry for us until we take a step forward with the new car," he said. The 28-year-old Chennai-born driver claimed his eighth finish of the season in Hockenheim. The Hungaroring, however, is quite a complex track and the second slowest on the calendar after Monaco. Cars need good traction on the exit of the slow corners. "I see it is a very twisty circuit that looks difficult for overtaking. Actually, it's a circuit that I'm going to like a lot. It's quite slow, but looks like there will be a good flow. It's clear that you need a good level of physical preparation to cope with the race in very hot conditions," Karthikeyan said. The Indian, who has suffered because of quite a few technical failures of his car, said the track would be a real test to the Jordan's powerplant supplied by Toyota. (PTI)
