Karun told the media, “I want to thank Tony Fernandes, Kamarudin Meranun and SM Nasarudin for giving me the chance to race this weekend for Team Lotus.”Ever since I first joined the team I have been looking forward to this opportunity and I am determined to do my best to repay their faith in me.

“I am approaching the weekend in a very realistic frame of mind. I will be doing my best to push and to make sure I learn as much as possible.”I know there will be millions of Indian fans, and Team Lotus fans around the world, who will be behind me and the whole team, so I will do the best I can to give them something to cheer for.”
