PARIS, Sept 19, 2011 (AFP) - India's Narain Karthikeyan, let go by HRT in favour of Australian Daniel Ricciardo, will rejoin the Spanish team for practice in Singapore before racing in the inaugural Indian Grand Prix.

HRT team principal Colin Kolles commented on Saturday: "It is great to have Narain back in the car as it will give him critical seat time before he drives at the Indian GP. 

"He is the best driver to come out of the region and is undoubtedly extremely talented as he has proved through his progress this season."

Nowadays, with so many buttons, rules to follow, indicators, etc. modern F1 cars require a good amount of time to spend with them to master the challenge, pure driving skills is not enough.

Karthikeyan added: "Of course it's a great feeling to be driving on a Grand Prix weekend once again.

"On the subject of my home Grand Prix of India, the team had assured me that I'd be driving when I stepped out of my seat after the European GP."

India's first grand prix will be held on October 30 at the 5.14km (3.2-mile) Budh International circuit in Greater Noida on the outskirts of New Delhi.
