Narain Karthikeyan hopes to race on in Formula One beyond next month’s inaugural Indian Grand Prix after announcing a new sponsor.

India’s first grand prix driver will drive for Hispania (HRT) at his home race on Oct. 30 after being replaced by Red Bull-backed Australian Daniel Ricciardo in July. Ricciardo, also a Red Bull reserve driver, is tipped to move to Toro Rosso next season which would again free up a seat at Hispania.

“I want to drive in F1 as long as possible,” said Karthikeyan after signing a contract with India’s largest two-wheeler manufacturers Hero Motors. “It is the pinnacle of motorsports and that’s what we are trying to do,” added the 34-year-old Indian.
