I didn't see eye-to-eye with Mahindra Racing boss: Karun Chandhok

Greater Noida: Indian racing driver Karun Chandhok says that his last few days in Formula E were uneasy as he did not see eye-to-eye with Mahindra Racing team principal Dilbagh Gill, adding that a "blame game" began as the outfit wasn't performing as expected.
Only in its second season, Formula E is a form of auto racing which uses electric-powered cars. Mahindra Racing is the only Indian team taking part in the series.
"It was just the way things were playing out with Dilbagh. We just weren't seeing eye to eye. In the first season we started off well.
"I finished fifth and sixth and we were competitive but from there it kept going downhill. We went into a little bit of blame game. It wasn't enjoyable towards the end," Chandhok told IANS.
"I just did not need it as it was just too much. It was starting to get a bit too political and stressful with him so I preferred to walk away still being friends. I still have a good relationship with everybody at Mahindra."
