Red Bull Or Old Bull?�-�Editorial from Planet-F1.com

Quotes from the editorial from Planet-F1.com:
"Bigger Than Schumi
In terms of attracting bigger audiences Jordan have had a much better idea than Red Bull. Employ the best-known F1 driver in the world. Yes, that’s right Narain Karthikeyan is arguably the best-known F1 driver in the world because he’s a household name in the greatest democracy, India.

Sachin Tendulkar won’t just be visiting Ferrari next time he turns up at a grand prix."

Would have made sense if everyone in India knew Narain. Sadly I do not think it is true. Maybe if Sachin visits him he will become more well known

Personally I am very happy with his results. Coming in 15th and 11th in the first two races of his F1 career is commendable. He is reputated to be a very disciplined fellow so I can only see things getting better for him.

Congrats and Best Of Luck to Narain from this corner of the net.

way to go Narain.
And about Sachin and the rest of India - well thats something I have been sad for a while now ... Vishy anand, Geith Sethi, Jaspal Rana, Paes and so many more - great achievers that too in a one-man sport but with not even a fraction of Sachin's popularity ... c'est la vie ...
heck there are already news reports that Sachin spoke to Narain before the race etc. etc. ...
and so it goes - but then we digress.
Go Narain :)
