Narain hoping to be third time lucky

Montreal:

India's rookie F1 driver Narain Karthikeyan believes that his week-long stress relieving session in the wilds ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix will bolster Team Jordan's prospects of collecting some points at the Gilles Villeneuve Circuit. "I know that the circuit has been quite successful in the past for the team where they scored their first ever Formula One World Championship points in their history," Karthikeyan said. "It is also kind of a home race for the team with the team owner being from Canada. The serious business will begin on Saturday on the track," he added. The 28-year-old, the first-ever Indian in F1 circuit, said the Canadian circuit was everyone's favourite but his team concentrated on being relaxed for the eighth race of the season here. Karthikeyan is on his first ever visit here for the 37th edition of the Canadian Grand Prix and 27th GP ever held in this French speaking city. "I have now completed a total of 7,000 kilometers behind the wheel of the Jordan Grand Prix car including the 3,100 kilometers of testing. "I have never driven on the North American circuits. Everyone in Formula One seems to love the Canadian Grand Prix. My team is no exception. I have been running twice today around the track to get familiar with the curves," said Karthikeyan about this Sunday's midseason GP. Karthikeyan was quite impressed with the track, which he said, had similarities to the Australian track, one of his favourites. (PTI)
