F1 Vs A1

Narain Karthikeyan ends up at 20th place in the Italian Grand Prix here last sunday. People who only read the newspaper stories on Narain coming at 15th or 16th or 17th or 20th think that his performance is not as good and wonder why he ends up always in the end. But considering the fact that the team Narain drives for, ie the Jordan`s, does not really have very good cars and anybody who follows the F1 races would know how the other top 16 cars easily overtake Jordan cars without much effort. And particularly the McLarens and Renault and Ferraris definitely drive in a different world and have better cars, Jordan is nowwhere near to them. Considering this fact, it is really appreciatable that Narain is doing a good job consistently coming ahead of his team mate Teigo Monterio and doing better than Minardi`s most of the time.Its all matter of time when he gets into a better team and would then definitely land in the top 3 slots regularly.

A1 ( ) starts this Septemer 25th and is expected to be a level player, ie every countrys cars are exactly with the same specification and quality, unlike F1 where big players had better cars. A1 is the brain child of Sheikh Maktoum Hasher Maktoum Al Maktoum, who is really rich sultan and has keen interest in motor sports. I think A1 would also pick up well and do good, but will it be able to match F1 for its glamour and style and extragavanza, we need to wait and see.
