20 Mar 2005: Narain Karthikeyan of Jordan F1 had an excellent drive at Sepang F1 2005, staying out of trouble and driving an strong and consistent race.

The fact that he finished only 2 positions behind Kimi Raikkonen in a much superior McLaren Mercedes Mp 4-20 says something about the strong driving by Narain.

Narain had an excellent start in the Jordan Toyota car - unlike last time when he ahd a bad start - and if the car had a bit more power, could have overtaken former world champion Jacques Villeneavue before the forst corner itself.

Anyway Narain knew his and his car's limitations, and drovers sensibly thereafter. the among the drivers who had to retire were Jenson Button and and Anthony Davidson in their BAR Hondas, last race's winner Giancarlo Fisichella in a Renault and Mark Webber in BMW Williams;, Barrichello in a Ferrari, Jacques Villeneauve in a Sauber and a Minardi.

With the Sepang track being extremely hard on the drivers, tyres and cars, stamina and consistency was of paramount importance - and Narain presented a brilliant drive avoiding any of the pitfalls that dogged others.

If one goes by the last two races, Narain sure looks like he has great potential - and such a showing will stand him in good stead through the rest of the season and perhaps into the 2006 F1 season.

We shall keep an eye on Narain, keep you posted regularly. Keep visiting us as we follow his progress to the Bahrain Grand Prix after 2 weeks.
