Oct.28 (GMM) Bernie Ecclestone has vowed to talk directly to Vijay Mallya about putting Narain Karthikeyan at the wheel of a Force India.
But with the F1 chief executive keen to see his sport succeed in the lucrative Indian market, and 35-year-old Karthikeyan at risk of bowing out at the end of the year, Ecclestone admitted he thinks the two sides should get together.
"I think Narain should be driving a Force India but you have to talk to Vijay and see what he says," Ecclestone told the Times of India.
According to India's Telegraph newspaper, he added: "I think Narain should be driving for Force India. I will talk to Vijay and see what he says."
