Force India yesterday denied they have any plans to hire local talent Narain Karthikeyan.

Robert Fernley, deputy principal of the team promoted by Vijay Mallya, has poured cold water on the notion saying the 35-year-old would not be on their minds for 2013.

“Narain is an exceptionally competent driver,” Fernley told AFP.

“If we put him in our car this weekend he could do better. But with all due respect to Narain, can he compete with and outperform our drivers? It is not his fault because he’s not had the opportunity that our drivers have had. Unfortunately that’s the way it is,” added Fernley.
