Karthikeyan becomes first Indian to drive F1 car
Karthikeyan was promised a Formula One test with the Jaguar team after he signed for their British Formula Three team Stewart Racing two years ago.
Karthikeyan now races in Japan in the Formula Nippon Championship and his test for the team had been delayed as he tried to find a gap in his schedule.
But the Indian driver started testing for the Milton Keynes based team on Thursday morning and completed a handful of laps.
