Narain, who was dropped in July to make way for Australian Daniel Ricciardo, was handed back the racing reins at Hispania Racing Team and will take to the Singapore GP this weekend.
"Singapore is especially tricky suspension-wise as the circuit is bumpy, quick and it's a long lap (5.073 km). The grip builds up gradually and the weather is hostile with high temperatures and humidity even under the stars.
So overall, it requires concentration and physical-fitness in spades and is the best place to return to the cockpit as far as overall preparation for driving a race is concerned." he told MiD DAY. About his machine, the 34-year-old said: "We have some upgrades for the high- downforce requirements of the track so we'll be in uncharted territory setup-wise."
