Feb.15 (GMM) Neel Jani has confirmed that he is hoping his Indian descent will open a door for him at formula one's newest team.
The 24-year-old, who formerly tested for Sauber and Toro Rosso, races under the flag of Switzerland, but his father was born in India.Rumours this week are linking him with a possible role at Force India, which is co-owned by the flamboyant Indian billionaire Vijay Mallya."I would certainly like to race for Force India next year," Jani, who currently drives for the Swiss team in the A1GP series, told the publication DNA India.He refuses to give much else away, but suggests that he has already chatted with Colin Kolles, the team's German team boss."It's too early, but things move fast in F1," Jani explained."It is better to be prepared. I am yet to have an eye to eye contact with Mr Mallya and Kolles and am looking forward to it."Jani also confirmed that he still has a relationship with the Red Bull stable."But I am free to do my own thing. Let's see," he added.
