I’m surprised this isn’t already being discussed on here;
Team principal Colin Kolles told India’s Deccan Chronicle that contrary to media reports, Chandhok was “suspended” after the British GP.
“When he signed an agreement with us for the 2010 season, Karun made a lot of promises on paper,” Kolles said. “But, he failed to fulfil his obligations. We waited for some time, but we didn’t have any other choice than suspending him at the German GP. We, however, did everything diplomatically. We didn’t make it public. Since then, Karun was never in the team’s radar.”
Its a shame, but I wonder what the conditions were? I mean his finishing positions / speed was impressive?
Maybe the court case will provide an interesting insight into driver’s contracts, I always wonder what Barrichello’s 2003 contract conditions were, especially after Austria 2002.
