Feb.26 (GMM) Campos team principal Colin Kolles on Friday confirmed reports that Indian GP2 driver Karun Chandhok is close to securing a deal to race in 2010.

“We are close to finalising a deal with him,” the 43-year-old German-Romanian is quoted as saying by India’s Business Standard Motoring.

“However we will be in a better position to comment on this over the next few days,” added Kolles, amid reports the 26-year-old driver’s deal could be signed and announced on Friday.

Chandhok would be the second Indian to race in F1, after Narain Karthikeyan – who was also signed by Kolles – drove throughout 2005 with Jordan.
