yes its official.He is in the Jordan suit.But he better not mess with the Great one( M.S) or he'll be another Montoya(made in India off course).i think he'll be able to outperform the Redbulls and Manardis courtesy the Toyota F1 engine.

Well the Toyota engine hasnt done anything spectacular for Toyota itself so I doubt any wonder in Jordan . Yes he may out perform the Minardis but I dont want to underestimate Red Bull. They may just be there somewhere in the mid field .

Anyways all the best to Narain.. hes put the Indian Tricolour on the F1 grid

FINALLY ... theres no bloody way I'm rooting for anyone except KN , even if he's coming last !! He's an Indian and that too the first to enter the F1 arena so its KN all the way ...... Now I cant wait to see an Indian on the WRC starters list ... Hope sponsors do start pumping money onto motor sports across the length and breadth of INDIA !!!

GUYS so its gotta be TEAM NARAIN on that sunday of March '05 when he lines up on the grid along the greats ( so far ) ... things might change by the end of the season though .... lol !!!

cheers
