No they do very poorly for the population

Karthikeyan doesn't deserve a place in Formula 1. He'll just be another failed attempt to get more countries involved, just like Alex Yoong

Narayan finished 15 in the first race and 11 in the second, and was 12 in the qualifiers for the Australian GP. All decent finishes, but with a car like Jordan you cannot expect any miracles.
