Karun Chandhok Biography

Karun Chandhok is part of a very exclusive club of only two Indian Formula 1 drivers. A multiple race winner and podium finisher in GP2, Chandhok was a test driver for the Red Bull Racing Formula 1 team in 2007 and 2008, before going on to race in Formula 1 for Hispania Racing and Team Lotus in 2010 and 2011 respectively.

Since 2012, he has been competing in Sportscars, becoming the first Indian to ever compete in the iconic Le Mans 24 hour race, finishing in the top 6 in class at Le Mans in 2012, 2013 and 2015. Chandhok also joined Mahindra Racing for the all new Formula E series, a historic new championship for Electric race cars for the inaugural season in 2014-2015, having negotiated their entry into the series.

Chandhok was born into a motor racing family where his father, grandfather and even grandmother used to race! After winning the Indian National Championship on debut in 2000, he won the Formula Asia Championship in 2001 before moving to England where he was a front-runner in Formula 3. Chandhok went back to Asia and won the Asian Renault V6 series in 2006, which served as a launch pad up to GP2 and then Formula 1.

Since 2016, Chandhok has been a regular driver and consultant for the Williams Formula 1 team’s Heritage business, working with the team to expand this arm of their business as well as showcase their World Championship winning Formula 1 cars.

In recent times, Chandhok has also experienced historic racing competing at the Goodwood Revival on several occasions and winning the Whitsun Trophy in the CanAM Mclaren M1A in 2019.

A resident of the UK, Chandhok has built up a strong reputation as a commentator and analyst for motorsport, working with five different global Formula 1 broadcasters.

In the past, he has also worked with Jeremy Clarkson for his end of year DVD ‘Powered up’, the NDTV’s Car & Bike show in India, on documentaries with National Geographic and a host of Indian news channels.

He has been a columnist for the world’s leading motorsport magazines, Autosport and Motorsport as well as Autocar, Overdrive and EVO in India and the online platform ‘The Intercooler’.

In a consultancy role, Chandhok works with Driven International, a circuit design company looking into new circuit designs, upgrade of current circuits and the creation of manufacturer driving centres around the world.
