Karthikeyan will have another Friday outing

The HRT F1 team has confirmed that Narain Karthikeyan will be given another Friday practice outing as he prepares for his race return at October’s inaugural Indian Grand Prix.

The Indian – who drove in FP1 at Singapore last weekend – will take over Vitantonio Liuzzi’s F111 challenger for the first practice session of next weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix. Karthikeyan will drive in place of his replacement, Daniel Ricciardo, when F1 makes its first competitive visit to the subcontinent next month.
