As we expected today, Hispania Racing has verified Narain Karthikeyan’s announcement that he will drive for the Spanish squad in 2011.

Thirty-three-year-old Karthikeyan will make his F1 racing return after a five-year absence from the grid, when he raced for the Jordan team in 2005, run under the management of Colin Kolles.

“His experience and speed will be very useful for the team during the season,” said Kolles.
