Chandhok to Lotus for 2011 (GMM) According to the latest rumor in the F1 paddock, Karun Chandhok may be in talks with Lotus about joining Tony Fernandes' team for 2011.
The rumor was aired on British television on Saturday morning from Korea, with pit reporter Ted Kravitz saying the Indian driver could become reserve driver before moving into the race cockpit in 2012.
Kravitz quoted a Lotus team member as admitting that the 26-year-old Indian, who made his debut with HRT this year before being sidelined by the better-funded Sakon Yamamoto, is a "great guy".
Chandhok said this week that he is hopeful his F1 career has not floundered permanently after just half a season.
"There is a lot to discuss for next year with the HRT team, but also with other teams to see what other options are available for me, but I do feel good about my prospects," he is quoted by The National newspaper.
UK-based Chandhok has not attended the most recent Japanese and Korean grands prix.
