Narain Karthikeyan, the first man to do it for the country, has wished the youngster best. "I am very happy for him to have got a seat in Formula 1 and becoming the second driver from our country to do so. I wish him the best," Karthikeyan said.
"Honestly, I don't know what to say. I am absolutely overwhelmed and have tears in my eyes. It has been a tough journey, but very satisfying one for sure. Karun has worked really hard to live his dream," he said.
