Tata Motors has steadfastly stood by Narain Karthikeyan be it in any minor racing series or Formula1 racing.  Bharat Petroleum’s Speed brand was also associated with him while he drove for Jordan but later on mounting losses for the oil producing PSUs has seen Speed move out of sponsorship.  Now the new Hero MotoCorp after severing connections with Honda has decided to become a sponsor of Karthikeyan and this has thrown a new line of hope for Narain about his hopes for the next season apart from driving for Team HRT this year at the Indian GP.  Surprisingly the other Indian driver Vicky Chandok has not found any major sponsorship from India.
