Feb.22 (GMM) Narain Karthikeyan has indicated that talks about a race seat this year at Super Aguri are no longer taking place.
It was reported recently that an Indian consortium, led by the telco Spice Group, was pushing for former grand prix driver Karthikeyan to be central to its planned buyout of the Japanese team.Key Aguri backer Honda, however, was reportedly vehemently opposed to the appointment of 31-year-old Karthikeyan, who raced for a season with Jordan in 2005.Currently a driver in the A1GP series, Karthikeyan told the publication Mid-Day that he has now effectively given up on the F1 option for 2008, although it is not clear if Super Aguri's Spice Group talks have also been scuppered."I am willing to wait," he said. "Six months, a year. If F1 happens then good, otherwise I am quite pleased with this."
