Karun Chandhok scores first point
Our Sports Reporter

New Delhi, May 4
Formula 3 driver Karun Chandhok showed signs of progress along with his T-Sport team as he drove confidently to 8th and 5th positions during the two rounds of the British Formula 3 Championship, held at Croft circuit in Yorkshire.

The two top 10 results were Chandhok’s first point scoring finishes in the championship class of the Formula 3. Earlier, the 20-year-old had recorded his highest qualifying positions of the season with 10th places for both the races on Sunday, but was till frustrated by how things ended up. In race 1, Karun did not make a great start, but as the field came through the first complex, he capitalized on another driver’s mistake to move ahead. But race 2 was a much better affair for him as he picked his way through a messy first corner, and went on to improve his standing. Karun has his next two races at Knockhill circuit in Scotland after two weeks.
