Why Karun Chandhok is not with Force India?

Karun chandhok is the second indian driver to compete in formula 1, though, he is paid driver in hispania racing team. Vijay Mallya says he wants to see an Indian driver racing for his team Force India– but only one that can fight with the front runners.

“It is very important to have an Indian driver. I would love it. I’m not a fool and can see the enormous publicity potential which would come from it. The downside at the moment is that there is not one Indian pilot who has the potential to battle the best on the track.”
But rumours persist, Dr. Mallya does not want Karun Chandhok because he would become the star in india and which could result in low popularity of the team in India.
